SCT and Insight... FINALLY

Well... As you guys may remember, I just recently bought my truck, about a month ago.. and it feels like forever already.. I absolutely love it..

Well Friday, I bit the bullet and went and bought a SCT x3 from TSD (Truck Source Diesel) here in SA.

And all I can say is WOW.. Im more than absolutely pleased with the tunes that I received.. the transmission shifts great...the truck sounds great..the throttle response is great... and of course.. the black/white smoke is great... (white smoke from my tires of course) and im only running the mild tune he gave me...

I highly recommend these guys to anybody in the area that can make the drive... they may be hard to talk to on the phone, it always seems to be a rushed conversation.. (I think they are a little understaffed in the office) but, once your there in person, these guys a great... Especially because they'll actually talk to you about what your wanting..


Anyways, I get a call friday from my Mom telling I got a box that came in.. I though AWESOME!.. I ordered my Insight Tuesday from Stealh..and 3 days later already received it! Excellent shipping speed!

Anyways, Got everything hooked up and running, and after several days of driving to work, (25 miles one way on the highway) I've kept it around 55 like said to test the Delta's... and also kept it around 65-70.. my normal cruising speed.. and the highest Delta I've seen is 8, I know everywhere I've read said 15 Delta is the point where there is a problem... But is 8 a good number? Or is that warning signs that it may be failing? Just curious, am I on a downward slope, or am I still sitting at a safe Degree...

Thanks guys..
All I can say after my tune though is I love my SCT, I knew they really opened these trucks up, but DAMN... :

Uhhh... Wait... What...

I do love that SCT.. Its really great..

And okay, thats for the response.. What degree's should I start getting worried about? I know after 15 you should really get worried..but if I start crawling upwards of 12 should I get worried?

Uhhh... Wait... What...

I would use 15* as a 'take action' temp, and 12* as a monitor closely action
