Which SCT livewire custom tune??

Guys I'm running dpf cat delete with livewire extreme on 2008 psd cc with 20in rims and stock tires. Been looking at innovative diesel tunes and kem tunes. I really wanna get more mpg. I woul like to stay around 200 for just one custom tune file. Looking at kem 345 or any others and idp 200 xstreet.

i'm currently running the livewire w/ eric's extreme race tune from IDP as my daily driver.. shifts were really firm at first.. but have smoothed out a bit after 300 miles.. and they get better every day.. eric emailed me last week and said he should have an update for better shifting with the extreme tunes that are lilttle more Daily Driver Friendly.. i cant wait.. power is great and mileage is better... i wont know mileage until i fill up at the end of the week.. i'm still above 1/2 tank...

I have both kem and idp tunes

kems 275 nets me the best fuel milage but hard shifts- avg 18-19 hc
idp extreme race is my fastest but is the worst fuel milage. avg 12-14 hc
I have about 10000 miles on kems tunes, started at 210 then 250 then 275, the 250 is a good dd and avg 15-17 mixed driving, and blows the most smoke for some reason!

I only have eric's extreme street with 2000 miles on it, i use this for my dd even though its my worst fuel milage, its sure fun if you can afford it

both great tunes for the livewire though
