Race tunes

Ok Ive just had my headstuds put in and Egr blocked off and Im gonna be a little more easy on the truck from here on out. I was wondering which Innovative tune is the best for the motor. My favorite is the Xtreme Race...it feels like it works the engine the least while driving normally and the power is there if its needed. The Xtreme street holds the gears too long and therefore gets shotty mileage. The street tune feels like the engine is working harder than Xtreme tunes when normal driving. SO Im asking which one is the best for the 6.0L diesel?? What do you guys think?

I run a race tune daily. There is no reason why you can't.

i have the xtreme street tune now, i love it, love the power. but i am going to get the Xtreme Race tune soon.
i've only noticed about a 1mpg increase from stock to the xtreme street. so i'm hoping for more mpg's with the race tune.

I run the X race file daily most of the year, and the aggressive tow in the winter once the snow flies or I need to hook up to somenthing heavy. I love the X race and can't wait for it to warm up again... Never used the X street, economy, or regular street file. Don't find the need to when these 2 tunes do everything I need.

If you have studs and EGR blocked you shouldn't really have anymore problems with your current mods. I would run Xtreme Race, I have run Looney for the past 20k on my truck and don't want to go down to any of the lower tunes.

Is Extreme Race ID's most powerful tune besides the stud one and custom tunes?

The only thing i dont like about the Xtreme Race is that the converter is locked. It makes it seem sluggish.
