Switch from Innovative to KEM or Gearhead?

New here and have learned a lot searching the forum. I am running innovatives extreme street tune on my livewire and don't really care much for the harsh shifts or fuel pressure surging. I'm wanting to try maybe Gearhead or KEM but wanted to get some opinions on the two before choosing. Which ever tune will be a daily driver. Looking for the same ballpark horsepower range as extreme street but with better mpg and smoother fueling. Thanks!

I found a mini max around here for 2000 lol. I run the kem 175 tune its nothing crazy I want to try the 345. The shifting with my kem tune is really good it's not to firm. More firm then stock tho. Most kem reviews are good the odd person said they were terrible. If you have a problem with your tune they will work with u and get it right

With gearhead can he email you a single tune or do you have to buy the whole package? Their website doesn't really show much

He can email you a tune. You have the package from IDP? You need to send Eric an email if you are having frp surging issues and ask him to email you his extreme street so that it doesnt surge

No I have the emailed extreme street. I have contacted him about the surging and he couldn't help me, he said buy traction bars. Plus the shifting gets really old when using it for a daily driver. Don't get me wrong, his tune is great and pulls very hard when locked I just need something with a little more drive ability. It also seems like your either cruising or wide open, there's no in between

Contact Gearhead via email They will hook you up! I am a HUGE fan of Gearhead tuning. If you ever have any issues, contact them and they will take care of the problem for you. Also, he can email you just one tune but its more cost effective IMHO to get the package deal. saves you about $100. But any way you go, you won;t go wrong with Gearhead!
