Not that it really matters but how big of a difference have people been seeing with MPG w/93 tune vs W/O tune?

To be honest, I've been driving so abnormally for data logs (WOT pulls, and testing the power bands with the tune) I can't comment on MPG yet.

jdgesmlls the 91/93 tuning by James is one tune not two. I thought it was two when I ordered but was told it works for both fuels. Another thing is the tune does not enable the shift numbers like Torrie has enabled also the orange S on the left screen is not there either kind of stealth but I like them there myself. I also order the RiceKrispy tune but you need a after market exhuast to hear the snap crackle. I have not installed exhuast yet so I cant comment on that.

@WhiteGhost - Thanks for the information. I didn't expect to have the gear number in the Unleashed tune but I think it is a great addition. You are saying that even with 'Sport' mode engaged, the orange "S" does not show on the left display with the James' tune? That seems odd... I suppose I can look down at the gear knob to see it illuminated, but I wonder why he would remove that?

I didn't order the Rice Krispie as I don't have an aftermarket exhaust.

I've set mine to display the gear number in Drive and in Sport. In Sport Mode, the S still shows up but the gear is always displayed as well. I did this on my 2018 Explorer XLT as well.

It's a simple setting in HPTuners, and I'm sure is the same for SCT or whatever Torrie uses.

* 2017 Fusion Sport, 12.7 @ 108 mph tune-only (early tune of mine, bad trans settings), full trunk w/ lunch, and dirty paper air filter
* 2014 SHO non-PP, 12.4 @ 111 mph tune-only, all day long with dirty paper air filter and worn out 30k RS-As

Yes, in the Unleashed tune the gear number shows by default in regular and sport mode. The sport mode "S" also behaves the same as stock. @WhiteGhost reports different behavior for the James tune. I don't recall seeing anything in the SCT device itself under tune options to enable/disable this (but I wasn't really looking). Would be interested to know if this is possible if the James tune has it disabled by default. I find it to be very useful information.

I think it is disabled , I spoke with James on this and said he can probally add it if I desire. I had a run with a older M3 and a 94-95 Mustang the other night I pulled on them so [email protected]#$ing hard and left them behind with his tune yet it very stock like.

Thank me for bugging Torrie for months to get the gear indicator to be permanent. I asked him shortly after getting his first tune a couple years ago. I'm trying to get it done on my new Ranger too.

Just loaded the 91/93 map from tuning by James the S is in the left screen when in sport mode as usual but with the Rice Krispy tune it is not. Just sent James a log to see how things are running.....man this tune feels different compared to unleashed the transmission preasure is quite a bit stronger. Intrested to see others opinions.
