Check out Rudy Diesel Performance. They have everything you need and they are the best price I could find.

Something close to this with the 210 tow performance and the 250 and up tunes...

1.) From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 55-60 mph at approximately 1/4 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
2.) From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 65-70 mph at approximately 1/2 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
3.) From a stop, accelerate the vehicle to 70 mph at approximately 3/4 throttle. DO THIS TWICE.
4.) From a 40 mph roll, press the accelerator to the floorboard quickly (forcing the truck to downshift) and accelerate to around 75 mph.
5.) From a stop, acclerate to 75 mph at wide open throttle (press the accelator to the floor immediately). DO THIS 2-3 TIMES.

If you are going to run the 275 tune I would get the TCM there also at Rudy's. It suppose to help out the hard and jerky shifts. And congrats on the purchase you won't be disappointed.

You don't need the TCM with the 275.
