345 Tune Help

Hey,guys i have the Mini Max and was debating on getting the 345 Kem tune.But i really need to know if this is a good daily driver tune or is it just for the track,I do not beat on my truck,race,or drive hard just a good daily driver.So all the good input people can give me will really help me decide.I would like to know how it runs from start to finish,does it have the real touchy gas pedal because i hate that?Just be honest and give me your best opinion.
Thanks Guys

I do not see it as a race tune. It is no more touchy than my spartan 275 tune. It also shifts very easy. It is a hair stronger than my 275. Really similar tune in my opinion. Very low boost cruising. 14 mpg in town. The shifting is better at mid throttle than light throttle. My trucks didn't like the in town shifting. Shift flares were aggravating. Since then Mike has corrected most of the shift issues. Overall it is a good tune that keeps driveability and good power.

just installed my kem 345 tune and love it lots of power good firm shifts when your stepping rite into it but nice smooth shifts when driving it nicely i think it will be a great dd tune with the power there when you need it

its my favorite daily driver with the best shifting of all my tunes.310 feels stronger but I believe it has a lot to do with the touchy pedal of the 310, all of the power is at the top of the pedal with the 310 but the 345 has all the power at the bottom of the pedal.

I think the label 345 scares a lot of people but this tune is actually one of the smoothest streetable tunes I have ever run. This tune is the next best to my 275v3, which is no longer available from spartan. You will like it.
