Looking for a better tune

Hi there,

My Extreme street just doesn't seem like its pushing the best that It can, and was hoping for some suggestions on some companies to look into that can push my hp up even more!

I was thinking PHP along with the ficm Hercules tune, but I need it for my daily driver, as well as pulling,

If this thread is already started, please send me in the right direction as I cant seem to find anything.

Thanks!

When my truck was set up like yours, stock injectors turbo etc, my absolute favorite setup was Gearheads srl with the atlas 40 ficm tune. Truck ran absolutely amazing in fact much better than it does now dang it.

If you are local to the shop or willing to make the drive here... I will be happy to load each one up on your FICM for you to test out to see which fits your needs best

I had the atlas tune done at ficm repair.com. It works great and their service is outstanding but in hindsight I wish I would have spent a little more and gotten the php tuner so I could change ficm tunes
