SCT 3015r first thoughts and a few??
Recently installed a 4inch straight pipe and the sct 3015r. My first thought is that I love the increase and power. I recently made the same trip on two separate tunes. It was a 240miles round trip with about 70% highway driving. On the way there I used the street tunes. Truck averaged 15.4 on the dash meter. On the way back I used the performance tune. Got an average of 23.7. I like how the truck performed on the street tune no issues at all. Loved the added performance on the "performance" tune and of course the better fuel mileage but wasn't too happy with the shifting. Felt like it was slipping between 1st and 2nd and 3rd and 4th. Also when I would punch it the downshifts were very rough. I also used the tow tune several times which I am happy with.
What trans tune are you guys using with the tow tune? The tuner only has stock, dyno, street, performance, and I think extreme.
Should I still use the tow/haul button still?
The truck is not my daily driver so I am not too concerned about the fuel mileage, but of course Im happy for any improvement over stock. Currently I could not afford a major repair on this truck at this point. Is the performance tune pretty safe to use or should I not press my luck? I am pretty easy on the truck and my main concern with getting the tuner was being able to delete the dpf.
