The power between the looney and x-street are about the same. It comes down to your driving style.
The x-street locks the converter when you hit 40mph. The benefit to this is once locked up the clutches don't allow for slippage. Meaning more power to the ground. The disadvantage is at light cursing speed it lugs the motor down. Here is an example. If your cruising at 45mph and come upon a steep hill, the motor will lug and EGT's will climb, and feel like lack of power. You can change your driving habits to over come this kind of example. You could either lay on the skinny pedal hard enough to make it unlock and downshift, or turn on the tow/haul button on the gear selector, or take your foot off the gas,tap the break pedal, then lay on the skinny pedal just enough to make it downshift. The x-street won't keep the converter unlocked until you get below 40mph.
ID's x-street is a great tune for daily driving/week-end warrior it just take a little getting use to.
The x-race locks the converter when it hits 2nd gear, with the right driving habits it's good daily driver. The x-race is a great tune for those who want race/week-end warriors. It won't unlock the converter unless to lay on the skinny pedal real hard which lugs the motor and throws out black smoke before it unlocks and down shifts. Another way to unlock it is to get off the gas pedal, tap the brake and lay on the skinny.
The looney has the lock up characteristics of ID's regular street, but the power of the X-street. This is a great tune for someone who wants power but don't want to lug the motor down when the converter is lock in the lower gears/speed. Another great daily driving tune.
Right now I'm using the Looney Wild as my daily driver. By the seat of the pants feel, it is close in power to the x-race but without the early engagement of the converter being locked up.
These are all great tunes, it all boils down to your driving habits and what you want your truck to do for you. As far as daily driving tunes, it all comes down to personal preference.
