SRL vs SPD

I know the tune debate has been beat to death. I have read nothing but good things about the SRL, which I am currently running, and the Mild Panty Dropper by SPD. I would like to know the difference between the two and peoples preference. I plan on purchasing a tune from SPD here in the near future.

Ok first of all Truck Source Diesel (TSD), namely Chris, sells the Super Panty Dropper (SPD) tune. I have driven both the SPD and the SRLX and hands down the SPD is a better tune. At least on my 06 truck. It smokes less, gets the same mileage, has better shifting (IMO) as the truck doesnt fall on its face at 50mph like it does with the SRLX, and has better power.

Again these are just my opinions. So far out of all the tunes I have ran (Gearheads, TSD, and IDP. Still am gonna give Vivian's a try), I like the SPD the best with Eric's Xtreme X coming in right behind it. Hope this helps.

SPD FTW!!!

I've got tunes from both and Chris at tsd's service and tunes in my opinion are better.

The main thing I look for in a tuner is customer service and obviously the performance. And Chris has gone out of his way to tweak tunes for me where the other didn't really give two sh**s.

But that's just me.

I agree the SPD is the baddest tune I've ever ran or rode in!

This might be a dumb question but what does FTW stand for?
