Hello Ken, I have a programmer on my coach and I am pleased with it. My coach is a Ford F53 chassis but I also have Other vehicles with reprogrammers in them. I happy with them all and I can say I've had no problems with any of them. They are the easiest and best way to give extra performance and better shifts to your vehicle. I hope this helps, have a nice day.

Ultrapower is nice to have. I get better pulling power, slightly more gas mileage and better driveability. The only sownside is the price and that isn't all that bad in the land of enhancements.

I had an ultrapower tuner on a 99 f53. Worked great, no downside at all

I have no personal experience with the Ultrapower upgrade, but if Ed does not see this, i will email him. He added the Ultrapower to his Dolphin and can give you good feedback on its effectiveness.

I just bought an '05 Sea Breeze LX 8375 on the W-24 chassis, and see no reason for performance upgrades at this time. If yours is like mone, it has dual exhaust, which helps in the performance. Not sure how much Ultrapower, or Banks Systems would help. I know the Banks System increases power and torque, but not sure if it does enough with the W-24 to warrant the expense.

Before you spend the money, wait for the feedback.

Happy Trails!

You should post your questions about your National coach on the National Owners section of irv2. Also, there is a national Owners Yahoo Group site that is great for help as well. Check out thte Dolphins, a National RV owners FMCA club at www.dolphinclub.com

Happy Trails!
