Does reloading the same tune make a difference?

Maybe its just me or the rocks that im smoking, but for some reason whenever i reload the same tune on my truck that its currently on it feels like it runs betters. As time goes by it seems like it loses the power a wee bit. Maybe its just my imagination, but i just swear i can feel a difference. I know the whole tranny relearn thing might make a difference, who knows...

Yes. it does make it faster because your comp will eventually learn and de-fuel or something along those lines and when you first load the tune your comp doesnt de-fuel

plus the comp is learning the tranny shifts so as you reload your wiping out what the comp has learned and thus hard shifts making the sense of more power

yea same here. I talked to ted at innovative and I was having small issues with my extreme race, he told me to take it off and run the extreme street for a little while and then put the extreme race back on. He said something might of missed during download. thats coming for the pro him self!! I noticed my extreme street seems to be running better and not shifting as hard. I have wondered the same!!

When you reload the tune, it clears out the temp tables and rebuild them. It's part of adaptive learning. It will feel quicker, possibly a bit more smoke, and shift differently. Once it learns, it smooths out quite a bit. The actual difference in power and speed is minimal, but reloading a tune can sometimes help if there is some type of corruption. It is a computer, so a reboot can help.
