Newly tuned!

Well I just loaded Mr. Eric's Street Tune through my X3... I just loaded it and started the truck and I can already tell that the truck is different. It cranked and idled better in this 40 degree weather than the truck did earlier in 70 degree weather. I'm really unsure of a couple of things though. When I loaded it onto the truck, it asked questions about Shift Points and Shift Pressures- I didn't know what to do so I loaded it as is... Should I drive it easy for a while tomorrow then drive it normally and the adjust accordingly? I'm brand new to this... Thanks for any advice!

Glad to see your truck back on the road again friend, if you have questions about the tuning give Fred a call in the morning, he will definitely help you out. I'm sure there will be great info in this topic soon too! Again congrats!!

Well thanks! I can get those pics for you now that the truck is out of the shop! And I received a 2nd exhaust tip the other day that I need to send back to you- It was sitting by my fence when I got home. I think it must be the one y'all shipped out first- I don't know where it's been, but I'm sure it could tell an interesting story about it's trip! How should I send it back? I don't think y'all charged me for two and I put it inside so the box wouldn't get messed up. Just let me know! Y'all are great folks to deal with!

Haha what a tour that thing has been on! I knew it must have been lost because it never got there so we sent another one and all that ones tracking number said was held at shipping facility and honestly I forgot to call about it. Anyway we would love to have the pics of the truck! Hope the kids had fun with the exhaust system! Keep in touch and talk to you soon!!!

No need to adjust the shift points and pressure. Just be sure to put in the correct rev per mile, and drive around for the first 20-30 miles like a normal person before you start smashing the throttle down for WOT runs. You need to give the trans time to relearn.

Thanks- I really wasn't sure about the points and pressures. My morning drive to work is 8 miles of backroads, so I just poked along like a sane person this morning. I will say that it seems smooth and shifts like normal. It doesn't feel like a monster, but it does have more on tap than it did yesterday... I'm gonna keep driving it normally for another day or so... Has anybody used his Economy, Street or Tow tunes before? Just curious how y'all liked them.

You are best leaving shift points alone but you can increase pressure to firm up or soften the shifts. I always load my tunes as written and drive them for a while before changing anything.

Got questions about your 6.0?

Drove it tonight and WOW- I love it! Power is VERY smooth and it is THERE! It shifts great and when you get into it is going to get side-ways. I really like the tune. My question is whether Mr. Eric's street tune (driven like a sane person) will get comparable or better fuel mileage than his Economy Tune? I loaded the Street tune and I want to drive it for a while but I'm wondering which would be better mileage-wise. I know that sounds silly- Economy should get better, one would think, but I know y'all have said that the hotter the tune, the better the mileage (If you drive it a sane human being). Anybody know the answer? Thanks y'all!!
