anyone using an Innovative Diesel SCT tune?

I'm thinking about upgrading to a new Livewire TS with some custom tunes from Innovative Diesel. They said they can write me a tune that will give me 190hp to the wheels. What do you guys think?

Well first thing to do is find out the condition of your truck when you get that monitor installed. EOT - ECT, Ficm volts Ect, Ect. Also what if any mods does it have right now? IDP has some pretty good tunes along with several others. Each truck responds differently to the same tune so the key is to try several until you find the one YOU like. If you go and add 190hp to a truck that is on the verge of a clogged oil cooler, bad Egr cooler or even has weak head gaskets you are in for deep trouble. Read up on the stickies and lean about your truck BEFORE you just start adding HP and live to regret it. These motors are great they just require an education and some TLC

Are the black diamond gaskets the same as black onyx? If so sorry to say its only a matter of time till those gaskets blow on you.

I ran Erics Extreme Race on my 03 which wasnt studded and loved his tunes. He tweaked a lot of my tunes to my liking. I payed for the 3 tunes ended up with 10 in the end by the time I had couple different tow tunes written couple extreme race tunes and so on.

I had IDP tunes first but have since got a tune from the wildman. I prefer the wildman tune, but that's me and my truck.

I want to get a performance tune, economy tune and towing tune. With the economy tune, what am I looking at mpg wise.. and what are you guys putting down to the wheels on performance tunes?

I'd be upset if I bought a tune and ended up with 190 hp to the wheels. It's 260 or so stock.
