Thumbs up TSD Tuning Review

I have spent the last couple weeks in touch with Chris at TSD.. Been working with him on my (Super Panty Dropper with early lock up and Open vanes at idle Tune)....

To me there is no comparision out there in tuning... I have tried Race tunes from Quick Tricks, Gearhead, Innovative, and Cale

Chris hands down for all out performance

Shifting is SO Spot on.. Perfect/Quick/Firm Shifts

Power is Seat of the pants WAY Stonger

Smoke is almost non-exsistant

Sound of the open vanes at idle is Super Cool... Sounds Like a Cummins with a hint of 6.0 (Only way i can describe it)
My rating of tuners is 1.TSD
2.Tie----Gearhead/Innovative
3.Quick Tricks
4. Cale

All of these tuners had things that i liked..... But Chris has everything that i like

That is the worst part about Chris... Not the easiest guy to get ahold of... I tried email about 15 times before he got back to me.. then he told me to call.. even then it is hit or miss.. Seems as if he is a very busy guy.. It took me about 2 weeks to get my tunes.. after i got them now he answers my emails within 2 hrs.. I am on my 3rd tweaking now trying to get the ipr duty cycle, and icp just right for the 3500+ rpms.... My truck has never ran this stong even with 120k+ miles

How do you measure your IPR duty cyle??

When I went with TSD's tune, I called them in the morning, they took my info down and called me back in the evening. Then I had a tune in about 10 mins. Chris usually responds to his customer's email within an hour or two. I recommend calling for the first encounter.

I am unable to measure my ipr duty cycle... but given the info that i shared with chris-- he has ended up taking some of the cycle out on my race tune... He says the little bit of surging that i have above 3500rpms is because he feels "that i have a REALLY strong HPOP" and am over pressurizing my system

He was basing this off of my ICP v. Bouncing off of 4.8v when this is happening

Seems like a Super Sharp guy when it comes to getting these things to run

How does your truck start with their tune. I have the SPD and it starts harder than my SRL, the SRL is crisp and quick while my SPD isn't.
