    Beautiful weather today and got in a nice 150 mile interstate ride. With the holiday weekend I saw no less than 20 cops taking radar. Must be like the Wilder beast migration to the crocodiles. ...

    Yep I believe that Power Commander "overlays" the EFI control module to basically adjust both the fuel delivery and the advance curve (possibly more). I don't have any first-hand EFI tuning...
