my vote is to get the PHP Ficm tuner. It is really easy to use and you can switch around the tunes to your liking

Well I was definitely going with php but I have a livewire ts and gauges so I was just going to get a tune and use his loaner. Which tune would work best? 80? 100?

So, I purchased the PHP FICM tuner and I currently run Matt's SRLXX. I e-mailed Matt and he told me to run the 40HP FICM tune. He said in an e-mail that he get's 95% of the fuel by tricking the FICM. I've ran all the tunes on on the PHP FICM tuner and the 40 seems to net me the best overall performance. Hercules is quite smokey, which as you probably know Matt's tunes aren't smokey. Just my .02.

I thought I've read that before which is why I ask. You don't get full potential with a tune also I guess. Thanks for the reply

I have a PHP FICM tuner and to be honest all I leave it on is the 40. It seems to be the best for my DD habits.

I have Matt's SRL and I run the Atlas 80 and it seems to me a great combination and I have not seen any rise in EGTs as a matter of fact I ran his 8K tow tune the other day and the EGTs were higher at 60 MPH unloaded than with the SRL unloaded and the same speed.
