The canned tune are nice, but when you get a custom tune, you'll never use the canned ones again. WELCOME TO THE .ORG!!!

Custom tunes for the SCT are the best. Here's a link to some free Spartan tunes you can try out with your livewire. Just pick the strategy that matches your truck. I've been using the Spartan tow tune as it gives me the best mileage out of the other custom tunes I have. You'll have a lot of fun, enjoy:

Index of /~amon/tunes

some of the ratings for the Spartan tunes:
Stock+ 20HP - "tweaked" stock calibration

Heavy Tow 40HP - safe to tow Max GVWR of vehicle

Heavy Tow w Engine Brake 40HP - safe to tow Max GVWR of vehicle, with turbocharger exhaust braking

Aggressive Tow 65HP - safe to tow/haul 10,000LBS payload

Aggressive Tow w Engine Brake 65HP - safe to tow/haul 10,000LBS payload, with turbo exhaust braking

General Economy 90HP - daily-use economy file, 7500LBS tow/haul limit

Max Economy - designed for maximum fuel economy; no assigned power or tow ratings

Mild Street Economy 100HP - daily-use performance and economy calibration

Aggressive Street Economy 130HP - daily-use performance and economy calibration

Hybrid Race 150-170HP - (dependant upon calibration) performance calibration

Ultra Competition 175HP - drag-race/sled pull ONLY calibration
