While there is a current forum on this topic, let me ask a similar question about tuning. I don't really understand what constitutes a "custom tune." From what I have gathered, if you order a 6-position tuner, the vendor needs to know the year of your truck + transmission type. I assume this is because they have tunes for each year/transmission combo. Is "custom tune" something different? I imagine that if one could take his truck down to a shop, and have an expert tuner that could work on it, he might come up with a "custom tune" for that particular vehicle, especially if it had non-stock injectors or other mods. But I can't imagine that the average Joe is doing this. Or maybe they are (I have no idea) - but it seems that it would be really expensive, not to mention hard to find someone out there that could do it. So what exactly do people mean by custom tune?
My grandpa used to haul 80,000 pounds of logs on roads of greater than 10% grade with a truck powered by a 80 hp Ford Flathead V-8.
And you guys complain that you need more power.
