I have these tunes: eco, daily, street, extreme, tow, and heavy tow. I really like the tow tunes, great for pulling with an auto (keeps the trans happy) i use the the eco tune less and less, i mostly drive around town in daily, its got good get up for all those stop lights. My truck runs the best down the highway set on street. The extreme setting with my mods is HOT!! it will $hit smoke on take off and when the boost builds you are GONE!! Its good stuff. looking back i would have put something else on the chip other than eco, maybe a smoke tune or something.

Without bigger Inj's your not going to get alot of smoke. You can only get about 50HP with stock Inj's so their isn't a big difference between settings like their is with larger inj's.
We have TW's tunes in stock..PM me if I can help.

the smoke tune will roll coal but you need bigger then stock sticks, stock sticks only flow around 98ccs of fuel which isnt much at all.

ok well i had my mind set on stage 2's for a while but from what ive learned in my other post i think i may be better off with stage ones. so if i go with them will that open up my ability for a broader power selection with the chip?

i had stage 1s for about 2 years. they were IMO much better than stock with good tunes. Hot enough to see some good smoke, good power over stock, but not too hot for a truck with basic mods to tow with. I couldnt help myself had to do some upgrades to oil, air, and fuel systems and get some 2's

ok i dont plan on doing alot of towing but when i do tow it will most likely be my 78 chevy k5 wheelin rig. my biggest thing is i would just love to be able to smoke off those freakin fart can honda civics and the drivers who think they have a drag car. they really annoy me especially where i am currently living because they make of 3/4's of the local traffic.

I have stock daily street smoke tow and extreme - I use the extreme from time to time for fun and the tow tune pulls the 21' bass boat great. Other than that it stays in street.

My daily is a waste for me - I could have had something else there.

The smoke tune is fun every now and then but like others have already stated with stock inj. it does not smoke too much - more like a good puff.
