Positive review would newer attract so much attention and actting as a joke makes it positive for the company.
Advertisers have to be very creative today

No such thing as bad publicity, and one fool on a soap box is not going to bring down GDE.

Actually bad publicity is of often good publicity!
(Unless you are a shareholder of United Airlines stock at the moment )

I knew a fellow called Harry Straton who was a millionaire made from hard work and the printing business .
Who often advises that mild bad publicity got you noticed and brought more business to your door!

ecowhale is a funny dude... Not sure what his point is but I just posted an actual review. Thank goodness I was smart enough to know that 695 is only 5 less than 700 and didn't fall for that trick... Only linking it here since this 'not-a-review' was at the top of the list when I got here to post mine!

LOL, this is funny. Ecowhale never purchased a GDE tune, otherwise his posts would be different. We work hard to return phone calls, but we do get a lot of them and I have missed some for sure. Email is the way to go for quicker response. We certainly don't pressure anyone to purchase our tuning. FYI, There is a reason we do not have much competition on any vehicle application we do...we are all mechanical engineers with about 40 years combined experience developing OEM level tuning with some past customers you might have heard of like Ford, GM and Chrysler. We are not aftermarket tuners, but vehicle calibration engineers. It takes us longer to develop tunes, but they are validated in hot/cold weather, towing and high altitude driving. A usual development cycle is 12-15 months. Additionally, our tuning pays for itself in about 40,000 miles on fuel economy savings alone for most drive cycles. Thanks for the support!

What's funny is that the "G" in "GDE" stands for "green".

Why is that funny, it does save fuel, and if you burn more fuel, you get more pollution. Anything else is an Oxmoron.

Keith, I am impressed that you are a tuner that actually tuned for the big 3!

Just goes along with reducing greenhouse gases with every tune by 10-17%, so 60-80 gr/mi less CO2 emitted. When the vehicle is calibrated for minimum fuel usage the particulates drop, hydrocarbon drops, carbon monoxide drops and NOx can increase. The Nox increase is in the range of 1% of the CO2 decrease, so very minimal. The name does have meaning behind it.
