I’d like to hear you opinion of the actual power increase you see, seeing as I’m looking to buy in the next week or so.

Power increase isn’t that much. Drivability increase is where it’s at

Will let you know. I didn’t get it for power though. Taking the AFM out, driving better and better throttle response, I’m sure it helps with fuel economy and more. Heard a lot of good things about it

That sucks, I thought I read low end power increase (0-60), I have definite power loss with lift & tires and I thought I've read Lew tune was the cure. I guess I'll start looking at the local tune shops, I hear they are averaging 30-35 hp increase with the 5.3's

You aren’t gonna get 35hp with a tune on a gasser. You would also need long tubes, intake, and e85 to get close to that.
