Gonna be moving down to Cypress Gardens next month (about 75 miles south of you) and considering getting rid of the Bimmer to lower my payments. :cry: I was looking at the 2018 Equinox Premier 2.0T, but come on, 252hp ain't gonna cut it. Are you guys gonna be releasing a tune for this motor?

Wow, been wondering what happened to you lately ;)

Unfortunately the 2.0T and 1.4T stuff is not selling that well, mainly because the cars they are putting them in are lame or don't sell.
I dont see that getting on the list unfortunately.

Thats okay, because I really can't see myself buying one unless I have zero other choice. Gotta find something else I can bury $10k in negative equity in. Maybe an Explorer Sport or something.

Explorer sport is actually pretty sweet.
One of our guys got one for his wife/family hauler, and its a beast with our 93 tune.
We pick up an easy 70 awhp on the 3.5....

Explorer Sport was a bust. Weird seating position due to the tight footwell. Stupid front drive chassis. Tried the F150, but it won't fit in my garage. Cheap decent domestics are hard to find. Maybe a Durango R/T?

I hear good things about the Durango R/T. Also got the SRT version now. How bout a trackhawk??? LOL.

TrackHawk is $100k. Not a snowballs chance in hell. I'd get another X5M before I'd get a TrackHawk. SRT Durango intrigues me, but I think the leases are going to be higher than I want to be.

This would be so much easier if the Charger Hellcat wouldn't double my insurance. They're leasing dirt cheap.

Have you seen the 2018 R/T? It looks just like the SRT.

Duango looks sharp, but you gotta do what you gotta do :)
