I do know that later this week when I had talked to Josh, he was out for a few days for some major dental surgery. Not sure past that; I would speculate you will probably hear from him early in the week.

Sounds like you already have your mind made up about going with RCD, but there's no way you can go wrong with Eric's Xtreme tuning from Innovative Diesel Performance.

I've never had a problem getting in touch with him and if you're ever so inclined to take your truck to the next level with sticks, snails or pumps, he's THE guy to write the tuning for it. In addition, his transmission tuning is legendary...he recently told me that he spends as much time writing the transmission tuning/strategy as he does the tuning for the motor itself!

Good luck!

i waited 2 weeks for mine. they where having computer problems. i got the 585 and have beat everything that pulls up next to me including a highly modded 2wd dodge (turbo & injectors) even on top end and my truck is a 4x4 f250 cc with 3.55 gears. i even raced my buddys 08 with my same truck and we where neck to neck and he paid $900 for his tune (dont ask). im very satisfied but i should tell you this is not a daily driver program as its not very nice on your tranny. my idle is pretty lopy (shakes the truck when stop at a light) specially when the ac compressor turns on and off. not sure if this is normal. hope this helps

i didnt order the lope 585. i ordered the regular 585 so i dont know if its normal. i have no check engine light. it does sound cool at first but it gets old pretty fast. i would love to find out if its normal. it doesnt do it at all with the stock sct tunes. i called rcd and they told me to take it to the dealer. they didnt sound like they wanted to help much. all i know is i cant go to the dealer with a tune and dpf delete unless i want to loose my warranty

rcd makes some good tunes. So far the best mpg tunes I have ran. They shifted hard, but so did almost any tune I ran in my truck untill the new spartan update just came out. RCD customer service Sucks... I do think my motor ran the best with the RCD tunes. It just seems to run easier if that makes any sense...

Thanks alot Guys! That's exactly what I wanted to hear thanks for your replies ! Ya cousin of mine runs the 585 lope. Said same thing cool for while but gets old so, run it for while but be mostly track only. But the other tunes for daily driver. I will try the innovative tunes as well just going through the motions here. I Am definatley interested in solid tranny tuning, seeing how I am on my 3rd factory tranny right now !
