Stud tunes vs headbolt tunes

Are there differences in power with a tune made for studded trucks vs ones with head bolts? Higher power more boost etc? I have extreme race for a truck with headbolts.i ordered from eric right now but my trucks in for studs and getting deleted and was wondering if he can make my file stronger now. i know someone asked this before but i cant seem to find any info on it. Thanks guys

Idk about Eric, but Vivian told me that the Looney for studded trucks has a little more boost but mainly more fuel and timing which builds drive pressure. Thats why they say you need studs to run that file. Also, it makes about 50 more hp than the regular Looney.

The Looney is great! But once studded and you get the Looney Wild, you will have a permanent smile every time you drive your truck!! Very noticeable top end power difference.

Thanks for the replies guys. Is vivians looney file comprable to erics xrace? I figure if i can get a looney file for a studded truck and get around 50 more ponies it would be worth it to me. instead of running files that were made for when my truck had bolts. Idk i always want more power

Yes the Looney is comparable to Xrace. The Looney Wild is the one you want with studs

I don't know about 50 more HP. That's a stretch. So long as you've got stock injectors and turbo there is only so far any tuner can go with it. Any race file will command max fueling. "Stud" tunes generally add a bit more timing and allow more boost. If you put it on a dyno I bet you wouldn't see more than 10-15 extra HP on a stock truck on a studded vs. non studded tiune.

Ahhh i see. Thanks for the info. I might order looney wild anyways just to see how it is vs xrace or xstreet. Ive seen alot of talk about it lately on the org. I have erics xrace xstreet and tow aggressive files but would like to try other tuners as well. Maybe a looney from vivan or srl from matt. Whats matts highest power file? I have stock turbo stock injectors fuels is stock except for banjos.

my xrace for studs vs. for non studded wasn't much difference. I was told it was a tiny bit more fuel added equaling about 5hp.

I kept my xrace for non studs after I got studs on my old 6.0 because of this and opt out on spending another $75 for a tune.

Not trying to give anybody the wrong info. Just passing along what I understood Vivian to tell me. Maybe she will come along and post.
