SCT Livewire tuning question - Swapping tunes
I have Gearhead custom tunes on my SCT Livewire, DPF deleted, and was curious if I have to return my truck to stock before swapping from like a tow tune to a street or hot street tune?
Also in regards to the tranny learning shift points etc, how long are people letting their trucks run in a tune to relearn all that? I tow about 2 weekends a month and would like to be able to run street or hot street tunes but don't want to have my truck relearning the transmission shifts every other week in the summers if possible.
I guess I never thought about this with my 6.0 and just had it brought up from another member on here who has a different tuner and thought I should post up for a good answer.
FWIW I usually would load a tow tune on my 6.0 and tow basically the next day. Never really thought twice about it. I did that last weekend with my 6.4 and didn't think about anything being learned or changed and needing time to learn.
I always returned my 6.0 to stock tune before going from tow to street, but am not curious if that is necessary.
