Question for all you Tony Wildman guys

ok so im curious, Ive got a birthday coming up soon and i think i can splurge and get me something Ive been wanting for a while now, a TW chip.

Now the question im asking is what settings do you guys with mostly stock trucks (exhaust, intake, gauges, tranny upgrades) what tunes do you see the most performance in?

any better than the others? Im not looking for a 6pos chip i may just go with 4pos so i want to pick carefully.

any input is appreciated. Thanks!


george.

I'm in the same boat as you....Exhaust and guages for me. All I am going to get when I order mine is
1. Stock 2. Economy 3. Tow 4. Smoke

If I do end up doing any other tunes I might do a lope or a no start but thats about it for me.

All the other guys will be on later, seeing as how most of em are at work....

Tow and a "race" tune is all you need.

Don't kid yourself that you'll ever drive it around stock or really in the economy setting.

Heavy tow has a bit different shifting and fueling is different.

Just call or email Tony.

If you want stock, pull the chip. Bingo.
