Gearhead vs innovative

I've got an 06 and just got my sct tuner which just the preloaded tunes on the sf3 r a hell of a lot better than the superchip but I'm ready for custom tunes now so my question is what does everyone like better srl vs extreme race or extreme street I'm probably going to get both and see which is faster and which one I will use as a daily driver. Any input guys?

I would reach out to Vivian at quick tricks and Chris at TSD as well....The looney and SPD tunes are top shelf as well.

I have never had a tune before and I just ordered a looney today to put on the truck and it drives nice and makes a sh!t ton of power. I am asking her to tweak two minor things and I will be happy with this tune. I am also going to order an SPD tune from TSD as it seems to be the cats meow right now on this forum for all around power and drivability. I cant say enough about vivian and her customer service, I had my tune in an hour. I have heard chris is the same way , do bare in mind they are moving shops and should be back up and going soon if they are not already.

I know Matts SRL and SRL+ are topshelf too and I will most likely order an SRL+ at some point to try out .... I have heard his tunes are very linear and the drivability is really good.

Eric is one of the original tuners and his tunes, well....speak for themselves.

It is really more about what the truck likes not so much what you like.

Hope that helps.

Todd

Well Todd pretty much summed it up. Your Sct will hold three custom tunes. You can try Eric's, Matt's, and Tsd or Vivian's tunes. Or whatever combination you want.

The panty dropper from TSD is apparently the best running tune around. Vivians and Matt's seem to get the best mileage.

From the tunes I have tried, Matt's SRL is the best DD for me. Although, I just ordered my tune from TSD with early lock up, so time will tell which one I like best.

= Early Torque converter lock up.

I had IDP Tunes first a week later I went with Matt's and never looked back I am studded now but still run the stock bolt safe SRL

yes u can swap any combo of three tunes into the SCT from your computer ,, also save them and your stock file on a flash drive somewhere safe

I run Matt's tunes, but will try others soon. Happy with the tunes but as we all know this is all about tinkering...
