Everyone loves videos, Truck Source Diesel Tunes

Finally got my tunes resent after asking Aggie over at truck source diesel to revise them for me.

This video is of the Super Panties Race tune with the vanes opened at idle. I think it sounds awesome, but i don't know why my turbo still likes to spool up, it must be in the strategy or something


Let me know what ya think

Sounds good man. Can't beat the turbo sound that's why when I originally built my mustang about 8 years ago I went outside the supercharger mold and put one on it. That whistle is almost as great as the "put you in your seat" feel when you're driving. How do the tunes feel?

My brother-in-law used to have the baddest looking/sounding 6.0
I've ever heard. It was 2 tone black/gold with the chrome package and 20'' wheels. He had MBRP 4'' (I think) and I want to say a dual air intake for some reason but I dont know how you would accomplish that. Other than that it was stock. It had an amazing deep rumble to it. The turbo sound on 6.0 is like an angel singing in heaven.

Hay!!! I like that idea of the vgt duty %. I actually do not like how the turbo will boost a bit when the engine is cold to warm it up faster. It is just too loud in the morning for me.

Thank you!!

yeah it sounds great, i also hate how the turbo spools up to keep the truck warm, mine still does it ike you can tell in the videos, however my truck at operating temp is only 174 since i need a thermostat... maybe if i replace it it wont boost the turbo up like its doing right now.

If you have gauges, block part of your radiator to bump your temps up. I do this when I go to the snow ~ once every 3 weeks to my cabin.

You can also put some thin spacers in your thermostat to bump the temp up if you have something small enough.

That is the best sounding 6.0 i've heard at idle..Sounds like a diesel and not just pushing air out sound most sound like...Is that because the veins are open?

What kind of numbers does that tune produce? How is the shifting and torque converter lockup? Does it clean the smoke up well? How does it compare to any other tunes you have ran?

I do have gauges, im going to do that this weekend when i get some time to see if it even helps. Il probably just replace the thermostat its easier, i know i need to do it anyways. its only $25 bucks, just no time to do it

Numbers, i don't know, i haven't dynoed it. It seems power wise similar to my looney wild, the converter locks up the second you hit 46mph in regular diving, shifting is nice and firm... i cant tell you about convert lock under WOT because its been so wet here lately the tires just spin.

As far as cleaning up the smoke, it cleans it up really well, my looney wild is smokier, This really isn't a big concern to me either way since these trucks with stock injectors don't really put out to much smoke.

Im going to try extreme street and SRl next to compare..
