The best tune feel is the 1.22 rd I've loaded it a weekago but power feels a little more then the 1.22 and the mpgs when from 16mpgs to 18 with the rd tune the trans has shifted great and the check engine light has only gone off one and it was for the airfilter. I drive 200 miles a day I've got 1000 miles on this tune.I would highly recomend ether the 1.22 or the 1.22 rd but don't load the 1.26 it sucks the trans slips it feels like,it has less horse power and poor mpgs I really don't know what sct was thinking when they realeased this tune.

I just talked with SCT and heres what they had to say....

There is nothing wrong with or product. On that vehicle we had a problem with the 1.2.2 Tune revision with the Transmissions. We fixed that problem and people say that 1.2.6 doesn't have the power that 1.2.2 did and tell you the truth 1.2.6 is the same as 1.2.2 and the only thing is that the Transmission is fixed. I have a customer with a F-350 Dually and he is running down the track @ 14.07 in the quarter, that sounds pretty good with 1.2.6. So there is no problems with our device. When we tune our vehicles we use a stock vehicle, we have a lot of customers running with a AFE intake and there vehicle are fine. Thanks

????????

That's still not in the near future with the SCT.

The "heck" is that Eric (Innovative) has some kick*** tunes ready to go but SCT hasn't released the needed software for their custom tuning dealers to distribute them. This has been the holdup since the supposed June 1st release date for custom tunes that has long since passed...

As I've said before, the 6.4 is a beast to tune correctly when compared to the simpler 6.0 and SCT isn't there yet. This is in no way a dig at the dealers, only SCT dragging their proverbial feet.

Stay Tuned
