I'm not talking about programmable features like red line adjustment or tire size but things that improve power or driveability.

I have Tom's tune and I was really impressed with how it woke up my zetec. It shifts alot firmer and runs cooler and over all I gained alot of power I don't know how much but it's alot faster. Between 2-3 it pulls really hard I was like wow this is a 4 cylinder? I bet I could keep up with a older stock 5.0. Thanks Tom
