Innovative diesel economy tune

I just purchased a SCT X3 tuner with 3 tunes on it.( economy, tow, street). I loaded the computer with the economy tune and when I start the truck cold it can't even move until it warms up. I can push the pedal to the floor and it only revs to about 1200 rpms or so which isnt enough to even get the truck to move barely. Does anyone know if this is the expected behavior with the tune or could something be wrong?

I got an economy tune from innovative when I purchased my X3. I loaded it before going on a long trip to see what it would do... wow it was so gut-less that I pulled off onto the freeway shoulder and reloaded my Extreme Street!!! There way no way I was driving around with that tune. It has never been used since. I would or email Eric and let him what going on, honestly if it where me I would ask to get a different tune because it was not what you expected.

If you don't drive like a mad man, you will get better mileage with an Xtreme tune anyhow.

I will load up the street tune tonight and check that out. Just as stated above it is very gutless on the economy tune, but that is kind of expected.

IFyou can keep your foot out of a power tune it will provide you with better mileage. My right foot seems unable to comply with that scenario so my fuel mileage sucks, but man do I grin while driving my truck.
