Comparing Innovative's Xtreme Street and DJ's Looney Tunes

Hello Everybody,
Just did a very unscientific comparison between Xtreme Street and Looney tunes. First off let me say they are both great!
The Xtreme Street will boost up to 30 but...my sotp meter tells me that the Looney feels faster... however the Looney only boosted to 21.
So I don't know what to make of that. I can say to any newb's like myself that are thinking of getting an SCT with custom tunes- DO IT! It's more fun than you should be allowed to have. Oh, and if you are trying to decide which custom tuner to go with, I have very limited experience in the matter (I only have Innovative and DJ tunes) but I can say-Try both (or more) Don't be cheap- you have a $40,000+ truck- spend the $50 or so each on a couple of different tunes. You won't regret it.

I would say the Looney felt faster because you were running the Xtreme Street. I think if you threw the Xtreme Race tune on there it would be a different story. Although I am only going off of what I read on the forum. I started out with Eric's tunes and have never had the need to try anyone else.

I know what you mean.
Me- I can't leave well enough alone- I always have to try something else-although A LOT of times that has come to bite me in the butt.
So the Looney and The Xtreme Street are not exactly comparable?
I did not know that. They both seem to be great tunes- I would probably feel a little more confident on running both a little harder if I had head studs and (I know it's stupid to not have one already) an EGT gauge. I do have an EGT/Boost gauge on order from Westach- but it is back ordered for about 4-6wks.

Well they are comparable, but from my understanding the Looney is pretty much the extreme file that DJ sells. And for Eric that would be the Xtreme Race file.

They are both excellent from what I have heard. Don't feel bad, I do not have Head Studs either, but hopefully that will be taken care of soon.

I've run the Xtreme Street tune for about a week now, the Looney tune for only a couple of hours today. I think I will run the Xtreme Street as a daily driver-and the Looney more often once I get my EGT gauge onboard.
Ran into a little snag though-when I went to reload my Xtreme Street tune (after reverting back to stock) I get an "error 1039 invalid binary type" message.
Which is weird because it worked yesterday and earlier today- still lets me revert back and forth to stock and load my Looney and tow tunes-just not the Xtreme Street?!? Whats up with that?

It's possible that the file corrupted. Try reloading the file from your computer back onto the SCT and then reload it into the truck. If you still have problems give Eric@Innovative a shout. He'll get your tune straightened out.

It is hard to compare the extreme street to the extreme race. I pull 35#'s of boost w/ extreme race and it runs hard. When I got the race I did not think there would be much diffrence, boy was I wrong. I use Eric's race file as a daily driver and as long as I keep my foot out of it I can get 17mpg and blow the doors off of rice grinders.

I think I will try Innovative's Xtreme Race tune as well. I will wait until I get my EGT gauge installed, though. I liked the Looney tune when driving at speeds under 70-75 mph- faster than that, it felt like the rpm were getting too high- I did see the boost gauge on the Livewire get to 25psi at one point yesterday when running Looney.
Like I said I always have to try something new-never satisfied.

So I don't know what to make of that.


Thats quite a spread in boost levels for two files with similar power levels. A little off topic perhaps, but how are those power levels made with lower boost levels. Are the lower boost levels safer for our 6.0's.?
