elite diesel tunes

6.0L Power Stroke Power Recipes - Ford Diesel Trucks - Diesel Power Magazine

so I was first learned about the 6.0 weekness from dieselpowermag and then found the org and was greatly impressed with everyones help and knowledge but i have a question and found it worth my time:

1. in the article the mention elite diesel many times for tuning yet I have never seen people using them here so:

are they not as good as the magazine states? just not tuning anymore or? I just wanted to ask since I want everyone to experince custom tuning like i did although im still new the truck was literally night and day difference with custom tuning but i never see elite diesel?

I have only tried the looney file for now but im gonna get one from everyone and see how my truck reacts etc...

I think the guy who wrote it was probably "persuaded" to mention that site. Those prices are ridiculous so im assuming he didn't exactly shop around.

I have the looney and other's. My opinion is that her files (at least with my truck, can't speak for others) is the fastest and shift's the hardest. Does it smoke more than anyone? absolutely. It also has a tendency to throw codes for whatever reason. I run hers for a little then something will happen like a weird hard start or a code and I will put another tune on. And I always get bored with the other tune and put hers back on..

after i put mine back to stock from the looney I was getting an underboost and a low circuit to 2 cylinder so i completely went through and un plugged and re plugged and verified every plug in i could even went re did the 3 ficm connectons and its been 2 weeks since i got those codes now.

HOWEVER... i really really liked the looney file lol. it put some smoke but nothing I would ever worry about even being stuck in nazifornia. Ya I was just curious about them since reading the article etc...

you tried innovative or wildman or srl tunes compared to looney yet? the looney is my first and only custom tune so far etc...

Tony's seem to be overall smoother but not faster thats for sure.

Im deciding now who to write a few tunes for me, I am putting in my new injectors in a few days and with the my 37's having the od changed to 60mph-ish. I might go with IDP so ill let you know how they do
