ID X-street tune

Well I just got finished with a test drive after loading the ID X-street tune and my first impression would be WOW!!!

I really didnt expect it to be that strong!!! Its a amazing differance even changing from one of the canned tunes.

I would also like to say that It was a pleasure dealing with the folks at Innovative, Eric was quick to respond to all me emails and everyone I talked to was extrmely helpfull.


I'm a little worried that it is so powerfull I might ruin my dependable ride. I have a 164,000 miles and its not studed. Its been a real good truck and I would hate to ruin it.

Now for some questions

1. I wont be able to install my gauges untill this weekend, As long as I drive normal 95% of the time I should be ok right? I will have a 200 mile @ 75 mph trip home friday also.

2 What are normal/good EGT temps? And at what degree would you guys call geting hot?

3. The tranny shifts hard but it doesnt flare or slip, do the hard shifts hurt the tranny at all?

You'll be fine driving without gauges for a little while, just be smart about it. I just installed my gauges this weekend and I've been running extreme street for almost a year.

You probably dont want to hover at 1300-1400 for too long. Most say under 1250 is safe. You can blast up to 1600 or so, just dont do it for too long, again, use common sense.

The tranny shifts good and hard and it is supposed to! Hard shifts are better than soft ones that start missing gears. This is the reason so many people use the custom tuned SCT's!

Eric is a bad azz tuner! I hear you about all the extra power and thinking your going to break something, especially when I use my Extreme race tune. Then I remember that I'm driving a and everything will be ok

As for safe EGT's, use Mdub's advice

I'm not towing anything just driveing home from working out of town, from what I've read I will return it to stock before towing anything at all.

I'm hoping to see some better MPG out of the X-street tune when I hit a long strech of highway. Just looking at my Lie-O-Meter I'm geting 1 MPG less with the X-street tune then I did with the pre-programed street tune. I was hoping it would be the other way around.

I think long highway trips with a sustained speed will yield the best mileage.

I bet that skinny pedal is getting planted a whole lot more often now with the custom tunes though... let it wear on you for a while, then once you have some self control back, try checking mileage again. Never use the lie-o-meter, its never right anyways.

Like you, I was thinking the xstreet program might yield better mileage for me. And for a couple of months I was. Here lately though the xstreet is averaging about 1mpg less than the street tune. Street yields me 18.2 on the lie-o-meter and 18.6 by hand, xstreet went from 20 on the lie-o-meter to about 17.5. This is averaged over a few tanks.
