What tune should i get?

i got a 2003 6.0 king ranch
4" MBRP turbo back
intake
and just bought a sct x3 tuner. bought it from mkm customs.super cheap!!! it was $341 for the tuner and 3 free custom tunes

i got 20hp economy tune,60 hp tow,and 105 hp street

all of the tunes are super clean. no smoke even at WOT.

have any of you guys ever got tunes from mkm customs?

dont get me wrong it runs like a rapped ape but you gotta have some smoke! what fun is a clean tune!

whats a good tune from say...innovative, or wherever else?

thanks for the help guys

There tuning is smoke friendly. They do not dump as much fuel at the lower boost levels as other tunes. Some like that, some don't.

Innovative street will smoke enough, but not too much. Xstreet will make you happy with smoke. You will not any doubt for smoke if you get Xstreet.

X race cleans up awesomely and also has way more power than 105. Just remember black smoke is wasted power.

i get about 21mpg on the hwy cruising about 65. and yes this is hand calculated. the old overhead lie o meter reads about 24!

tunes i got...
20hp economy
60hp tow
105hp street

the only thing i would say about mkm is it took 5 days! to get my tunes from them. if you don't want to wait i would steer clear of them.

it was a pretty good deal though $341 for x3 tuner and 3 custom tunes
