Who has the cleanest tunes?

Like the title says...who has the cleanest tunes. Of course with the most power, studless. Looking for stock turbo/injector comparisons. Currently running the SRL. Pretty happy with the lack of smoke. Just wondering if there were others with little smoke and more powah!!!

when I had the the basic tune, exhaust, egr delete goin' on, I had the srl and loved it dearly. Every truck is different, but from reading the millions of threads on this subject, the srl seems to come up time and time again as the best for overall for power, smoke, and streetability.

Now, when the basics wear off and the bigger lungs and lunch trays are on on your mind. find a live tuner that is worth his/her weight in platinum, strap it to the dyno, and get exactly what you want. Low smoke and tire obliterating performance. There are other things to do before that, very expensive things I might add. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

SRL is already what you are describing. You probably don't feel its full potential because your truck is stock. If you are unstudded and stock I don't think you should be going to a higher horsepower tune unless you wanna have expensive problems later on. Just my 2cents.

I run Vivian's looney tune and love it. Now that said I really have no intention on changing either but jmo. My truck has plenty of power and only smokes when u first nail on throttle.

gearhead and Truck Source are the most smokeless at the power level theyre at. So theres your decisions.

Now, stock being just the turbo/injectors. I'm deleted, 4" turbo back, along with all the little "mods". Pretty happy with the SRL, just wondering "if the grass is greener" with another tuner/tunes.

I have TSD's SPD tune and it only smokes a little until the turbo lights and then there is hardly any smoke. The truck runs cool EGT wise, shifts GREAT, and HAS great power. In all honesty you can't ask for more from a tune IMO and then throw in the fact that Chris only charges $50 for it and is great to deal with, I would't look anywhere else. JMO.

See my sig for mods.

Im running Erics tunes on an SCT. Extreme Street, Tow, and Economy.

I havent run the Extreme since going back to head bolts.

With the Tow tune, I can still spin my 33" MT's for a good 100' from a stop with no brakes.

It smokes a little on the first romp, but its not black smoke. Just a little gray haze.

I love my tunes, I need to get restudded so I can get back on the Extreme tune. I could put the truck sideways like I used to with my 02 Stang...........
