Looney tune from quick tricks...wow

Background: just got my truck after driving home on the economy setting for banks tuner which came with the truck. Got 19.5 mpg over the 50 mile trip which was great. After lurking for close to a year I knew to get the sct. I got the looney tune from quicktricks and punched it on the highway and WOW. It's like the truck had twice the power. I was amazed how much faster it was. I'm driving to new York soon and hope that I can get the same mpg. Just wanted to put it out there if anyone is questioning where to go or to get custom tunes. Great tune!

I haven't tried the loony wild yet, but the looney seems to shift hard for me.

I know this is an old thread, but, i just loaded looney and DAMN it sure gets up and is gone!
My only problem is it is REAL smokey.
wondering if I need to get it fine tuned or if it just give it some time or probably both.

I hate my Looney Wild tune enough that I removed it and put in the canned tow file.

I do like mine, my turbo is lagging and causing it to smoke like a dodge right at first.
pretty sure that can be tuned out
but as soon as it spools....DAMN pure power right up to 100 and well beyond from the feel of it.

Having run the looney for a while, it's not really a pure power tune. It's not quick to spool because it's meant to be daily drivable. IMO it's too lightswitchy and I'm not impressed by its cold trans fluid shifting (or the lack thereof) on the fwy I get the best mileage out of it compared to the economy tune.

If you want it to clear up some smoke, roll into it a little slower. Mine looks like a house fire if I flat foot it from a stop.

I've ran numerous versions of it and finally gave up. Vivian worked her butt off trying to get it right, removed fuel down low tweaked this and that and we finally gave up.

It's balls out on the top end, but not much to write home about down low.

Great mileage i'd almost run it as a long trip tune where it's all highway.

I just loaded Drew's Raped Ape and will drive it for the first time tomorrow.

The quickest 6.0 I've ever been in was tuned by IDP, their quickest tune. That sucker pulled like a freight train. The smoke wasn't too bad either. You weren't gonna win any EPA awards but it didn't cloud out the whole street.

Anyone here run Looney Wild Track?
