Just installed Matt's SRL....WOW

So I finally installed Matt's SRL tune on my truck and all I can say is WOWWWW! This thing made a hugeee difference in the get up and go. Its like a totally different truck now.

Only problem is I dont have gauges yet so I dont want to be getting on it too much. It seems to be shifting a little rough from 3-4 I believe.

Anyways just wanted to give some input on this for those that have never had a tuner installed. This is my first so I guess I just popped my tuner cherry..lol

The SCT tuners allow for transmission changes. Also the Ford transmission has to relearn your new "modified" driving habits and it will auto adjust. Hard shifts will be felt if your torc converter is locked with the new programs. But just everyday driving with just straight street tunes wont hurt anything unless you really just loose it and intentionally try to tear things up. But an occasional ricer burn up is also very impressive....Have Fun.....Steve

Yeah I wouldn't run it too hard without gauges. And if you're tranny is shifting weird, it takes a little bit for the tranny to relearn, and if you hand measure your revs per mile it will help a good bit. The tire calculators out there aren't even close to accurate.

Here's a few questions...

1. When I programmed it with SRL it asked me "Adjust setting" or "Skip settings"...I chose adjust and only entered in the correct gear ratio 3.73. Am I supposed to change the revs,tires,etc.?

Or was I not supposed to change anything?

2. Just in case I decide to change back...how do i reinstall the stock file? It broke it down into two files when I saved it to my computer. This is if somehow it got deleted from my SCT.

1. I would change it definitely!! Do both the gear ratio and the revs per mile!

2. Just select "Program Vehicle", scroll down one and it will say "Return to Stock."

Sorry guys but one last question here....

I live in CALIFORNIA sooo with that being said...do you think Elite's sneaky pipe would be enough to make this thing reliable or do I need a full EGR delete?

How much of a difference is there between the two?
