    Manuals are hard to come by. I'm shocked they still make them.

    So I had it 2 days and already 4 trucks aggressively drove around me. Is this going to be a habit the more I trick it out?

    Just remember while theyre aggressively working on theirs trying to get back on the road you'll still be enjoying yours.

    You have 3 pedals right? OVTune is cheaper for us and I have thoroughly enjoyed it in my sport for the last 6 months. You should do some research into it.

    Lol, yes 3 pedals and a stick shift. Who did you get your OVtune through?

    Is it that big of a change?

    Yessir. It handles completely differently afterwards. I have no idea if their hp/tq numbers are accurate, I would say they are close at least, but it made the truck so much more fun to drive, so much more pleasant to drive, I didn't realize just how much I didn't like the factory tune until I plugged in the OV and took off on a 3,000 road trip. A lot of the Atkinson noises went away instantly as well.

    It was worth it to me for the throttle response. Haha
