Hey redneckcustoms1,

You posted what appears to be a quote that I posted.  I didn't post that.  It looks like you got your reply mixed up with my posted questions.   But I think I see what your reply is..

You couldn't tell the difference between the LCE 4-in-1 and the Doug Thorley, right?  And... your experience may be my experience.  I could test each one and NOT feel any difference... but I sure would like to test them on an engine dyno.

Speaking of experiences... obviously each of us has a different level of awareness, experience and driving style.  I have driven trucks that the owner thinks is a real modified cats-a$$ machine.  But, compared to my more stock 22R, my truck would kick his truck's butt.  I have also had a guy ride in my '85 and when I tac'd it to 5,000 RPM in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears, the guy says I'm going to blow up my engine! :willynilly:   ...and says he never tacs his engine over 4,000 RPM!!  :smack:
