That is completely up to you. I prefer the 210 tune because of where I live. It smokes less, shifts are not harsh, and an all around better tune for red light to red light driving. Many people daily drive with the 275, and most 310 testers daily drive their 310 tune. Like stated above, its just up to you

I run the 275 on a daily basis. Yes the shifts are a bit harsh.....but could you imagine pulling up to a red light next to a GT or slowmaro and only having the 210 loaded. Light turns green, he hands you your azs. No sir, not here, 275 locked and loaded at all times!

Just kiddin. No really, my 275 actually gets better mileage than my 210. I do wish it shifted smoother....but......it is what it is. I live with it.

275 v3

i love the 275 v3 for daily driving. i tried the v4 but gas mileage was bad and the low speed lug was bad. i dont think that either program will hurt a thing.

The 275 v3 is no longer available. If his first 275 tune was the v4, thats all he has.

275 v3

i guess i should be thankfull for saving it. it runs great in my 2 trucks with no problems. i just figured that the v4 new version would have to be better driving, but i couldnt get used to it.

The 310 file I got today from Matt for the new TCM is a very drivable tune. The most drivable one I have recieved since May with or without the new TCM.

210 is a great all-rounder, smooth shifts, minimal smoke.
275 has firmer shifts, more smoke
310 is for the track!

If I was doing mostly highway driving, I'd probably have it in 275....but when combining a lot of stop n go city driving, you might prefer the 210.
