Re: Installed GDE tune... not really noticing a difference... anyone else?

At 55-60 I get 32 calculated all the time so the GDE tune isn't impressive in that regard. However engine braking and less turbo lag would be worth the install. I will not do this until my 8 year/...

Re: P20EE on 15 and 16 GC
