Innovative Extreme Street Tune...

I've been running the SCT Livewire on the Extreme tune with a DOC/DPF delete and drop in AFE for a while now, getting around 13ish across the board, beating it, pu$$y footing it, hauling, empty, whatever. I was under the impression that staying out of the throttle on an even higher HP tune would yield a higher MPG number, wrong? I installed the Innovative Extreme Street tune hoping to gain just a mile or two per gallon with the extra horses, but the result was different then expected. The first thing I did was let the trans learn the tune, about a half a tank before I really got into hard. When I did though, it wasn't any stronger than the canned Extreme tune. The smoke seems to come on hard at first but fades quickly once boost builds, regardless I don't care about smoke, more/less who cares?! I figured if the new tune yields better mileage I will live the lack of snap when needed. Once the WOT bug was out of my system, I ran 4-5 tanks through it and hand calc'ed all mileage, I have been honestly granny driving this thing, I even took some excess tools out of the the toolbox to lighten her up. Never breaking 2000 RPM's or 20 lbs. of boost and I haven't broken out of the 13 MPG range! So what did I actually get with my purchase? No quicker than the extreme canned tune and identical mileage. Any comments?

Did you ship your Livewire to us for the tune package? If not, I suggest you give us a call or email. The emailed tunes are different revisions than the tuning package. You will see an increase for sure.

So now I have to spend $400 more dollars to get an increase in mileage and HP? I thought I got that with my initial upgrade... Any credit available?

No, you don't have to. It's just another option for a much better program. Yes, you do receive credit. We have a lot of customers trade up for the new programming. Thanks!
