Tony Wildman tune review

Just started using Tony's tunes and I'm loving them. The trans tuning is perfect for the built trans. I've had alot of frustration over the last year trying to get it right with other tune writers but Tony hit the nail on the head. His extreme tune is easy to drive through town with and I can still keep my coffee in the cup in the morning! I only get tq converter lockup when laying the pedal down hard whereas other tunes I've used have the all or nothing lightswitch effect. Its not a rough lockup/ unlock either and doesn't make the whole truck buck. My 3-5 shift flare that I have with all my other tunes is completley gone and the truck doesn't ever hold 1st gear forever, rush through the gears like I've experienced before or search for gears constantly. I can't stand when the truck rushes through the gears going from 2nd to 6th almost instantly and I'm dead on the road pouring smoke until I mash the pedal. All things I've experienced with other tunes.

Work is a little slow so I haven't been towing as often but I have tow tunes to check out as well. Look like I definitely have a new favorite tune.

He's the only tuner I'm using now.
Tried all except for TSD.

Tony's got a hybird that he is going to put on his truck to play with. I also think he is running 190/75, he will be testing and writing for some of the other turbos as I can get ones to him.

I loved tony's tune, but it gave me a lot of **** flare that I didnt get with any other tunes or stock. I loved it other than that, but that was annoying LOL

I just realized I spelled shift wrong. :HEHE:
