I have already done the TMR Delete mod, very pleased with that. I am just looking to prolong the life of the transmission, plus I like the firm shift feel.

I plan on ordering a sonnax, superchips 3815, wheel spacers, and fender flares this week. We'll see how it all goes.

The more Ive been reading I was wondering if the 3815 will give you any MPG gains or if all it does is raise the rev limiter and mph limiter.???

It raisese the rev limiter on WOT2 and WOT3 positions as well as the mph limiter. Honestly not worth it though for the money~

That's kinda what I figured... If it doesn't help with mpg at all i could spend money on another mod. Plus raising the mph limiter=trouble because I would for sure have to test it out, multiple times lol

Probably won't want to do that with non speed rated tires. That could turn into a bad day quickly. Most people notice a slight MPG increase on the 91 octane setting IF they can keep their foot out of it.
