SCT tune question

I had a custom tune made for my truck. Kinda like a HOT tune. Does it hurt the truck to leave it on it all the time?

Tons of people daily drive on "hot" tunes or race tunes myself included. Drive sensibly and don't act like a 16 year old at every stop light or on ramp and you will be fine. Myself and others tend to get the best mpg on race tunes if you keep your foot out of it.

I just reloaded my Looney wild because I like using that every day rather than Tony's street tune

Try Tony's Extreme tune and you won't go back.

Mitch I also have his extreme and its nice, does make some power but lacks the put you in the seat feel of Looney wild.

Would an EDGE insight or evolution work as a visual read out only using my SCT as my tuner?

Yes, tons of people use a Insight as a monitor while using a handheld SCT to tune with

I love Tonys early lockup xtreme tune. Racing the dodge while towing my skid steer was crazy though. I wont do that again
