Custom tunes

Im lookin to get a custom tune..i have a SF3 SCT i was wondering can i get 2 custom tunes and still have my canned tunes on the programmer.?

Also who do you think offers an awsome tow tune for good fuel mileage and towing power..? and what about a race tune..?

and roughly how long does it take to write a file and get it emailed to you?

I think you should talk to innovative. I may have spelled that wrong.

I think on the sf3 you can fit 3 canned and 3 custom.

I have never tried a custom tow tune but I know Eric@innovative builds a good race tune and I have heard his tow tunes are good also.
I have also heard Cale writes good tunes also.

Most tuners will get you your tunes as fast as they can.....depending on what day it is also.

You can try Cale at BTS, his tunes are $25 a piece and are worth it if you are on a budget of spending.

Once you get custom tunes I think you lose the canned ones but once you have custom ones you wont give a crap about canned tunes!

I have Innovatives Extreme Street and love it. I also have 2 towing tunes but have only used the Aggressive Tow. It is amazing. I have another tow tune with turbo brake feature but haven't had the chance to try it out yet.

with the sf3 you do keep your canned tunes when you get custom tunes. i have 3 canned and 3 custom on mine. custom tunes are the way to go in my opinion, day and night to the canned ones.

03 Excursion 6.0 Eddie Bauer 4x4...egr delete, sct with custom innovative tunes, blue spring mod, Zoodad mod, 6.4 banjos, 18" Harley wheels. 4" turbo back exhaust with 6in tip, dieselsite coolant filtration system.

studs, 4" lift with 20x12s and 33s, factory 05-07 headlights......all coming sometime when cash flow allows!
