Innovative's milder tunes

I was wanting some opinions on Innovative's more mild tunes like their economy and such. I have the Xtreme tunes and the street tune now, but I prefer a milder daily driver that will shift smoothly and give me best economy. Before, DJ's eco was great for that, but I want to get something I'll have support for, so I'm thinking of getting Eric to write me some more tunes.

What kind of highway economy are you all getting on economy?

i have the economy tune, but have never used it. eric told me the street would do the best, 18.5mpg 300mi. round trips to work hauling anywhere from 1000 to 3500#, so i'm not going to complain, but if anyone has used the economy and done better i'd like to hear about it

I'm using Eric's Extreme Street and I'm getting between 20-21 consistently on the highway at 65. My travels generally involve accending several long mountain passes including the continental divide. Most of all I love being able to put my foot into it on the highway to get around annoying drivers. The stock tune just won't do that!

I've never tried Xtreme street for any length of time. The truck sounds angry when I run it, so it makes me nervous without having studs yet. It also shifts very harshly, even with it dialed down in the SCT. I guess I'm getting old, but I like my daily driver to shift like stock. That's what I liked about DJ's eco. It had close to 100 HP, but it shifted really smoothly at light throttle.

Run the extreme street for a while. Once the trans learns your driving style you might like it
