3 Custom Tunes from IDP Question-Discussion
I recently purchased a SCT X3 and the 3 custom tunes from IDP.
Economy, Tow70hp-Shft and Street
For those of you that use these tunes, what do you use each for?
I'm currently using the Street Tune for day to day driving. It has decent performance, I wish it had a little more power for merging onto the freeway when the rice rockets won't let me in... I might have to consider the extreme tune at some point but I'm still on the stock head bolts.
I'm getting ready to tow my travel trailer that weighs about 8500lbs loaded down with gear. I will be towing over the mountains.
Can I use the street tune for towing as well -- kind of the set it and forget it strategy? Or would I be better off re-flashing to the tow tune? I figure the tow tune will help with engine braking etc.
I have Insight Gauges with EGT Probe so I can monitor temperatures.
2006 6.0L Crew Cab
Truck would puke while towing 8k-10K. No more puking after: radiator cap, egr cooler, oil cooler and head studs.
Edge Insight Gauge works great!
