Xtream Street on a long trip ?

Hello all, does anyone know if there is any reason to not use my innovative xtream street tune on a long trip? I will be running empty with no trailer, just me the wife and the truck for the weekend. I just wanted to see if anyone else uses this tune for more than just running around town and the occasional race. I dont want to hurt anything.

Thanks guys,

Michael

I use extreme street every single day that I am not towing. You will be fine to run it.

Shouldn't hurt anything. Did you get a sipper tune? Might give it a try. I got just about 24 mpg on a long trip running the street tune.

What is this sipper tune you speak of ? Is it different than the street tune? Where did you get it?

It is a smaller tune to "sip" less fuel. Like an economy tune or the street tune.

Oh ok I do not have an economy tune but I do have the street tune. Will the street tune use less fuel than the Xtream ? I have never experimented with the two tunes, Honestly I usually dont make trips with the truck empty...

I get a little better on the street tune because I don't play around as much as the x-street.

If you want diffrent tunes send Eric an e-mail and he can send to diffrent tunes, just make sure you let him know what mod's you have and what you want.

From what I'm told the street is close to stock, no smoke but truck runs great. I thought mine ran better than stock.
