190/75 powermax tuning?

I'm in the process of putting in 190/75 injectors, I have a powermax turbo. I will also be installing a fuel system with regulated return. I did a rollback on the ECM, and got the atlas 40 on the FICM. My question is- Does anyone have the same setup and if so who did you go with on the tune? Any input would be appreciated. I will be changing turbos next year, so I just would like some input on this for now. Also truck is studded, deleted, and putting in New oil cooler. I have ran vivians and tony Wildman tunes before but have to have new tunes written because of the rollback.

Tunes is a very interesting subject. I have never personally run your exact setup... but I have been close enough.


The tunes will vary so much from truck to truck and from tuner to tuner... that you can only get a general idea from other peoples experiences.

I have about 40-50 different tunes for my truck. I have found that each setup I have tried that I like a different tuner... Basically the characteristics of the tune can be very different so I don't use the same tuner/tune for any of my setups. You will have to learn a personal preference.

With 285/75s and stage 1.5 turbo I like canned SCT performance tunes
With 285/75s, twin pumps, stage 3 turbo, and ANDY warren tranny I like Drew and tony wildman tunes
With 175/75s and stage 3 turbo I loved my TSD tunes
With 175/stock and stage 3 turbo I loved my IDP tunes and Gearhead tunes



Anyways... I am not sure if that helped or not.

Thanks for the advice, I'm going to start with TSD then go from there. I have Vivian's and Tony's tunes so I will get them to revised and try them too. Again thanks PEIXINHO

try gearhead if you get a chance. when i had a powermax with my 75% nozzles, matt had the truck dialed in very well. tsd also wrote me great tunes for that setup. both tunes felt very similar
