Gearhead Automotive tunes

Loaded up my new tune today to try out from Matt at Gearhead Automotive and it runs incredible. Thanks Matt. I purchased his Street Race Lite file and feel like its right up there with my XtremeSteet file from Eric. Both have great power and mpg went up with both. So far Matt's is shifting a bit better but maybe thats just me. Its another great tune if anyone wants to try out.

I got his tunes (SRL, street, and tow pig) and I like them a lot.
He seems to tune the power at a lower rpm, and my mpg's are up from Eric's X Street.

Sent Matt an email at about 10:30 tonight, he got back to me immediately, by 11:20 he had answered multiple emails I sent back to him and had a Street Race Lite tune returned to me. 11:30 at night and he is still willing to answer emails and send out a tune...

Unbelievable!

I am loading it as we speak and will have a report back tommorow.

Just an FYI to everyone with an X3/Livewire, a new Livelink software came out Jan. 19th and it is MILES better that the old version 5. Much more stable and supports Vista without a hitch. A must download, the old Livewire 5.1 drove me up the wall, I almost switched to a DashDaq and Spartan.

That was put down, Jan. 18th with a stock intake, straight piped. That is RWHP on a F450, going to have some losses compared to a F250... IMHO should make power right up there with everything else.

Send him an email or call him. He usually responds right to his email fast. Thats how I contacted him and had my tunes in a day.

I also have to give a big thumbs up for the service and quickness of Matt`s service, I emailed him around midnight on wednesday last week and by supper on thursday my truck was tuned. The power is great and the shifting is spot on.

I Agree! I have all three of Matt's files as well. I ran the street race light for a while, then switched to just street.... Tires are too expensive and too easily wasted with the Race file..
