Default Stage I has given me a 20% improvement in mileage!

I posted last week after my first full week of Stage I driving & noted a 10% increase in gas mileage over my best EVER previously (to 22.8 mpg).
Well, week 2 has given me an even better feeling-- 25.8 mpg for THIS tank (that is 5 mpg better than the car's average and 4 mpg better than the best I EVER logged!!). And again, no light pedaling -- full throttle starts, 80+ mph freeway cruising, traffic, etc.

Damn I love this thing. . .

OK . . . I've been waiting for just one more RAVE review of the Stage 1 before I order one. Now you did it. I'll be ordering mine Monday.

Where is the best place to order for BOTH price and availablility?

For reference, mine gets between 20 and 25 mpg (over 6k miles now). Long distances this weekend, got 25 mpg - very next tank got 20. Depends on drive cycle and how much crap I'm carrying around.

Steve - I ordered mine from 1st Chrysler - www.1stchryslerparts.com - I found it to be the lowest in price. I ordered mine 10 days ago and delivery is scheduled tomorrow.

GTSteve, you might also get a price from tthrift (he posts here alot). I ordered my S1 (and later the BOV) from him--couldn't ask for better customer service.
