The top of the page has a link to TSD tunes. It should walk you through the process pretty easily. Make sure to tell whomever the tuner is, that you have a powermax.

do you still have stock injectors? If you ordered tunes from innovative and didn't tell them you had a Pmax, then i'd say its on you and you're not giving them a fair shake. whatever you do, just make sure you pay attention to how your truck reacts to the tunes. if your trans starts to flare, DE-TUNE and contact the file writer.

Yes. I have TSD tunes on my truck. I along with many others around here love them.. I have a 6speed to I cannot comment on transmission shifting, but others around here who have autos, love it.

I used innovative for a month with my pmax just recently switched to gear head and I'm really glad I did way better spool more power and better shifting night and day difference. I'm running the srl tune it puts innovatives extreme street to shame on my truck at least
