TW 6.0 Tunes

For those of you that do not know, Tony is writing tunes for the 6.0's.

I asked Tony to write a tune that would fit my driving. Most know it's my DD/work truck, it carries around 2K daily and has a gross weight close to 9500 #'S, so finding the right tune has been a little frustrating.

I wanted something that would shift like a stock truck does, yet had the power to pass when needed and the big issue with me was fuel economy. I drive anywhere between 100-200 miles a day. Fuel economy is VERY IMPORTANT.

Tony sent my tune 2 weeks ago and I must say it's more than I expected. It starts easy, shifts great and the best part is at 2500 rpm's it takes off like a rocket. Also the fuel economy has improved as well. If I didn't idle as much I'm sure I would see even better fuel economy. I idle when I'm writing invoices and talking on the phone.........BAD HABIT, I know.

If you're in the market for a great tune give Tony's a thought..........

BTW, this is an unpaid endorsement..........
