First off, Im not trying to start a war. I know this is a touchy topic around here.

I just want to make the best decision based on users experiences.

I hate being screwed and wishing I had researched it better.


I just got paid on a big project and am going to take the plunge on getting a programmer and some tunes.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!

I have to clarify my mpg observations between stock and the two 91 octane tunes (Jusnes tunes). Best stock mpg in my driving conditions (no AC) was 27.5 averaged over 1200 miles. This is basically driving to and from work - quite a bit of stop and go traffic at times. The 91 performace tune (averaged over 1000 miles in same conditions - no AC) has yielded 29.2 mpg. Best tank using the performance tune was 30.5 mpg. Now that I am back to using the torque tune again (I switched over to the performance tune to note the mileage differences), I am averaging 28.4 mpg over a 900 mile period. The torque tune does generate LOADS of power down low and in the mid range, and I attribute the increase in mpg over stock due to the fact that I do not have to push the pedal as much to accelerate, and I can hold gears waaay lower that I could in stock form. I now chug along in 2nd gear at speeds just above those of casual pedestrians. And when I hit 3rd gear, it still pins me and makes me say "WOW!" The mpg that I posted previously (torque tune vs stock tune) was skewed because I was using the AC almost 90% of the time with the torque tune vs 10% with the stock tune. So in a nutshell, you should see a mpg increase using either of the 91 tunes. Anyway, just wanted to give an update on my mpg findings so far - I am pretty pleased now that the summer heat has passed and I can go back to driving without AC.

Am I going ot miss out on anything buying the USED BamaChips Custom Xcalibrator Tuner instead of the new Xcalibrator2?

$399 for something I would use a few times seems like a waste.

What do I gain by buying the new one over the used one?

There really is no difference getting a used one or a new one, our used ones were only used once or twice, and will work just like new, I just cant sell them as new. There is no downfall to going with used, the support will be the same either way.

Excuse my ignorance, but that means what for me?

The xCal 1 is just a simple box that you plug in and it programs your car. You cannot look at any engine diagnostic codes with it, and you will not have the ability to datalog your car if you choosed to do so.

I recommend the xCal 2, as it, to me, is more user friendly and a nicer package.

Used over New, it's all the same. Just someone else pushed the buttons before you did.
