Power hungry performance tunes

Is anyone running the php ECM/tcm rollback with tunes? What do you think of them? What do you think of their ficm tunes?

I Think enough of his tuning that I drive 11 hrs. to have Bill live tune my truck. I have a Gryphon FICM tuner and Bill rolled my ECM back from VXCF9 to VXCF4.

Power hungry performance tunes

I want to get the ECM rollback with a different power level. Not sure which level yet. Any recommendations ?

I'm running Atlas 40 and it is WELL worth the money. If I wasn't interested in towing I would run the Atlas 80. I love the way the truck feels with the FICM tuning. For me, it was a night and day difference, especially on the highway.

I know my opinion is slightly bias, but I run the ATLAS80 in combination with Bill's performance tune for head bolt trucks..

I have purchased tunes from several different tuners before having Bill tune my truck. In my honest opinion, this tune has be the best shifting (firmness and completely defeated the shift flare), economy ( dash meter reads 16.4 mpg opposed to 15.2 when running another tuner's comparable file (whose tune i was very satisfied with)), and power is far more consistent/ stronger across the RPM band.

Atlas 40 makes the low end a real stump puller. I didn't need the ECM roll back.

i want the rollback since i have an 03 and its uses the inferred ebp and it gets annoying when i switch tunes or clear codes it needs to relearn the strategy instead of adjust according to ebp

Thats what ive been reading about. i havent herd anything bad about them so far. just trying to decide what ecm tune levels i want to go with right now iam looking into 80hp daily driver, 100hp performance or race, and just a stock tune with a rollback for towing and inspection. Anyone running these?

I need to take back my statement. I had Bill hard tune a second PCM with his tow tune. I run this PCM currently and the tow tune was built off my PCM file. This way all I need to do is go to stock (tow tune) when required.
