Just put the truck and tune through its paces this past week, 1286 miles towing a 23' trailer with two snowmobiles. Drove all over the Michigan and the UP averaging 17.6 mpg over the entire trip. For comparison I had done the same trip with the stock tune between xmas and new year averaged 15.6 mpg.

Peddle response, gains in HP/Torque were noticed on highway entrance and general traffic negotiation. I expected a little better fuel econ based on previous towing with the same trailer but considering the winter fuel blends and the A to B comparison I am incredibly pleased with this tunes gains over stock!
Any performance data to share? I am sure there are many like me who wouldn't mind dropping off the truck for a few hours so you can flash in house.
Well, with the holidays fast approaching I am creating a wish list... and as it turns out GDE tune for my Canyon is in the top 10!?!

I have just about 10k miles in about 4 months of ownership and really love the versatility of this truck/engine combination. If this "base" engine hadn't been around for so long I would just leave it alone as it fulfills my daily driver/toy hauler/toss it in the bed needs.

What I am looking for:
1) Reduction in turbo lag - driving style must adapt to this lag, once you get in the boost range acceleration is moderate but always consistent(acceleration feels about the same with or without my 23' trailer and sleds)
2) Fuel econ - My best average thus far 36.8 mpg in the flat lands of Ohio. Although the stock numbers are superb, from my research on previous versions of this engine I know there is more in there.
3) Ok, because this is a wish list and I know some is hidden within this engine who cant do with a little more power. I don't want to sacrifice durability or fuel econ but everyone seems to love other tunes out there with +20 hp or so...
4) Become one of the many satisfied customers of GDE that I hear so much about...

Enjoy the holidays and keep posting for updates, I know they are watching ;P
