I need to calm down though that chip will get me in trouble...spinning 35's with no problem what so ever, stopped at a light going uphill with a slight bit of moisture on the ground, I couldn't even go anywhere in street, just spun the tires! Wow is all I can say! Very happy with the tunes, very happy with the truck in general, boy this 7.3 is something! Anyway, tunes list (Econ, Daily, Heavy Tow, Street, Extreme, High Idle). Now I just have to start saving up for my built tranny haha, not sure on how long this one will last with me messing around all the time. Alrighty, so far no improvement on fuel mileage (never had it in econ, and it was idling for 4 hours or so last night) so i'll let y'all know when I drive back to Cali though.
Morning Phil! Wished I had been able to make the G2G but I didn't.
I know exactly how you feel. My TW has Stock, Econo, Daily, Tow, Heavy Tow and Street. If I had it to do all over again I would have had the tranny built before I got the tune. More than likely you will be gettin' it done real soon. I could only get 12,000 miles out of a stock tranny with the chip....twice!
I keep mine on Daily until I see a challenge (another diesel) or a Prius in my sights. Then my hand naturally falls on the switch and over to street. I can't imagine what extreme would be like.
I have found, as have others, that Street is best for fuel economy as long as you don't "play" with it. And brother, as you know, is hard to do! Have fun but say "bye" to the tranny.
