The question should be "who's tune should I buy?"

With Doug no longer with AM/BAMA, then I'd lean towards Brenspeed. But I've heard good things about Steeda tunes.

The stock driveline in the manual tranny vehicles is very clunky. Other than checking your u-joints, its (supposedly) normal.

+1 on supercharging. That, however, will run you typically $6k or more but will result in 425 RWHP or more, no ey dependent. If you can't go that route, CAI & a good tune p.us long tube headers will...

I know on the GT that ANY fuel additive is frowned upon and known to be problematic. For higher octane, I'd stick with pumped fuel in the octane of choice. And, again, if you're not tuned for a...

The SCT's win the majority over Diablo, IMO, and it seems that the vendors writing the tunes favor SCT. Evolution (see their post above), BAMA/AM and Brenspeed write excellent tunes.

If you can afford a set of dedicated winter tires, then that's the way I'd go. Even better to put those on a set of winter rims. If neither, then research the ratings for a/s's on sites like Tirerack.
