PHP FICM tunes

What are people putting running for ficm tunes? I started the thread with different in tensions but I can't change the title, just curious what kinda real world experience people have to say about the atlas 40, 80 an 100 tunes. Does it really increase off the line throttle response? Reality is, a 68 spools great, but idk what magic you all worked but mine truck spools about the same as stock. I see a lot of people saying their large vgt lights off quicker than stock an I am assuming they have ficm tunes as well? I know a stock pmax an single plane wheel lit off quicker than the 68mm vgt by a little bit.

TSD SPD w/Atlas 40 has been great. I ran the Atlas 80 for a bit and liked it as well.

I've run all the PHP FICM tunes, including the original inductive heating tune.

The 40 was great. Aids in spool and very tow friendly. Overall great tune. I ran this for over a year and towed heavy even on big tuness like the SPD.

The 80 spools quicker than the 40, but adds some heat on the bottom end. Runs good. I just changed back to this FICM tune yesterday and think it will pair great with my MTW Stage 2. I noticed the EGTs got warmer faster but still cruised about the same.

The 100 is an all out, fuel dumping monster. I've seen this truck make 400+RWHP on a completely stock truck, without any ECM tuning at all. This tune is for trucks that don't tow or tow very light and without any frequency. This tune gets hot quick on heavier trucks, but really spools quick, really quick. It perfect for trucks like Chris Guests RCSB that will never tow and is super light.

Hope this helps.

I leave mine on the Hercules 99% of the time. I've swapped around to the 40 and 80 but once you run the Hercules, you will notice a definite lose in throttle response and low end torque when running either of the lesser tunes.
