Bought SCT gonna get tunes

I just bought an SCT X3 so now i need to get some custom tunes written.

After reading several threads on tunes on here I am thinking about mixing and matching tunes from Tony and Vivian.

I was thinking of getting Vivian's Tow tune with Jake, then getting Tony's economy and street tunes.

I know Tony has an extreme tune but my truck is all stock for now and i'm not looking to race it. I want mileage the most right away but a little boost in power would be nice. Is his extreme tune something that i should have studs with before running?

Tony can most likely write you an extreme tune that is safe to run with stock head bolts. I haven't tried Vivian's tunes or Tonys but I've been wanting too.
From experience GearHeads SRL is an AWESOME tune! Written for stoke head bolts but even guys with studs like to run it. Currently I'm running Innovative's extreme race, which has tons of power.
Good luck with who ever you go with, really can't go wrong with anyone of these.

Vivans Looney Tune gets better MPGs than her fuel. I run the Looney and it is AWESOME!
