Another SCT Tune Question

Sorry im new on here and im sure im asking a question that has been answered a million times but, I have a SCT livewire ,and a xcal2, which is broke, but anyways i have never ran any custom tunes, i have the head stud upgrade and i have upgraded the intake and exhaust but i have ran the pre-loaded tunes. i was happy with them until last week when i rode in my buddys innovative xtreme race tune truck, and now i want that power. The question is who do i need to go for tunes. the innovative tunes works pretty good in my buddys truck, but i see a lot of things about DJs on here, i thought they were closed, and i seen elite and wondered about them. Also, besides a race tune im wanting to get a good economy tune and a good tow tune.

DJs is closed. Go with innovative thats what I run. The economy tune realy is only 30 HP. I use the extreme street, Tow agressive with brake and extreme race. Eric will fix your tune until its what you want. great service. Most of the high HP tunes get better mileage than the econo tunes but you just have to learn to keep your foot out of it which is usially the hardest part!

The innovative guys are what it is looking like, thanks for the info about the economy tune, so that will be worthless, i cant remember if i seen this on innovative or elite but of something to do with the egr valve, my next project is to block off the egr entirely, but does that work and what would be the way to go transmission tuning wise?

It does and if your planning or more mods or even running the higher hp mods, it helpts to remove that recycled hot exhaust air that contributes to carbon buildup on the turbos. With flowing more fuel can be a pretty big problem as well, depending on your driving habits.

They will handle that for you when you decide on your tunes.

all you need is the extreme race and extreme street tune. maybe get a more aggressive tow tune if you tow with your truck. with the extreme race tune, when that converter locks, hold on.
definately go with erics tunes from innovative. you wont regret it.

I am looking towards the extreme race and extreme street, only thing a really tow is a 30 foot enclosed car trailer, mostly just quads and a couple cars every now and then but i do want a decent tow tune. With the extreme tunes is it okay to run them all the time, im not really hard on my truck i just want something that can halfway keep up with my cousins efi live dmax and it would be nice to blow the doors off this retarted fast and furious wanna be celica that pissing me off everyday to work. Has anyone had good luck with cale and anyone running elite or something besides innovative?
