SCT settings ?

Hey guys,
well, my SCT X3 got delivered yesterday and I sent InnoD a request for my Tunes. The Tunes came in today got 'em loaded and ready to go !
Everything was straightforward, ID's website is great ! I pulled out the Edge and loaded the Extreme Tune...
I only had time to drive a few miles and I didn't beat the bag out of her, so I really didn't get a feel yet.
I see in the tuning options I am able to change shift points, tranny pressure, rev limit, etc.
Which settings are most of you using ? Any experiments ? Results ?
Thanks Again

SO, anybody have any experience with tranny pressure adjustments ?

Also, man O man the truck REALLY REALLY smokes on a cold start in TOW mode (sctx3)...It's pretty cold here today, like 20* and I didn't have her plugged in. She lit off alright, then started a blue/gray cloud that filled my neighborhood.
Clears up after warm-up.
The ExtTow tune doesn't feel quite as stroong as the Edge, but the shifting is days better, smoother with less "clunk".
Side note: My EGR valve is disconn'd, I just unplugged it when it was closed for the time being, 'til I can afford a delete kit. Any issues with that ?

THANKS,

No need to unplug it. Erics tuning turns it off.

Do Not mess with shift points at all. Pressures are ok, but if you told Eric your tire size and axle ratio's you should not have to
