Just another SCT custom tune question

I am really considering selling my edge juice and getting an SCT. Ive read alot about how much people like the extreme street tune. Is this a good tune for everyday driving? and is it safe to use with out head studs? any advice appreciated

Yes it is, just advise Eric that you dont have studs in the truck yet, so you can make his adjustments, also it really depends how you drive it as well.

My gaskets blew when mine was bone stock, but I know many people who have run that tune on stock head bolts and EGR. For instance, Grayson (Goose350) has 250k on his truck, 150k tuned on Extreme Street, and still on stock head bolts an gaskets. It's really hit or miss.

On a side note, I know Matt at Gearhead's SRL tune is tuned with less cylinder pressure than stock tuning, and he claims to have a perfect record on non-studded trucks.

I don't personally, but I know a lot of guys who rave on them just as much as Innovative. I will be ordering Innovative's Extreme Street as soon as I get my truck back () and I plan on getting Matt's SRL pretty soon.
