I feel my RV performs adequately... I do pull a small motorcycle trailer too..

Please "sell" me on why I need this

Thanks
oakcreekeric,

The V10 motors have a great deal of power not only for driving but also for towing. That being said there is a great deal of desirable changes to be made. The first is the down/upshifting the vehicle exhibits when it hits overpasses, hills and long steep grades. The other is the lack of power/cooling that takes placed when the vehicle is floored. The earlier V10's will not hit power enrichment mode, the newer V10's won't until you hold the pedal floored for 60 seconds. We move this to 2 seconds for both. This way you can have the power needed for climbing, passing but also for cooling of your valves. We free up +30 hp, +30-75 lb ft per vehicle. This allows you to climb and get moving easier while burning less fuel. These among many other changes will give your vehicle a tune that it needs that is chassis specific rather than a one size fits all operation. Please feel free to ask me any questions that you have.

Chris will send you a PM with some questions to answer about your rig and payment info. These guys were super easy to work with, give them a call if you have any questions.
