trifecta tune on LLT

so far in the last few months ive added a Vararam Intake and a mrt ver 2.0 axleback exhaust. what kind of gains would i be looking at with the tune? not so much interested in #s but seat of the pants feel?

just wondering whats peoples thoughts on adding the tune? worth the money?

You'll feel a big difference via Butt Dyno. I have the vararam and axle back Flowmaster exhaust. I was hesitant on the tune but for $300 you can't beat it so I got it from BNR and its kick ass! They say another 19hp with the tune and its worth it.
Last time I dyno'd prior to the Trifecta I was at 268 RWHP....

the only thing holding me back a little is the extra cost for the cable

Well the red cable came with mine and everyone elses from BNR as we jump on a package deal that Jerry put out there. He's done it on a couple of occasions and may do it again, you just nev er know. If you check BadNewsRacing site, you can see what comes with the tune right now. If its not included you can wait for a sale to come on where it is included for that price. Also send Jerry and email on any upcoming info. Also if you look in the 'Market Place' there was a red cable for sale. Don't know for how much but it was advertised as a Trifecta Red Cable.

@ Jerry- No problem. Anything else coming down the pike for us auto guys?

i love the tune. im a manual so i dont get the tranny altered and i still think it was worth it. i know the gains dont seem like a whole lot on paper but the car just seems better all around with it. for sure worth it. try looking on the classifieds here some guys sell there cables sometime,.,might be able to save some money that way.
