Thumbs up Live tuning by DP tuner

I just got back from Denver ;were Jody was doing his live tuning. I only had the 60 HP tow tune and the 80HP econo tune. What a difference the live tuning makes. I have an early 99 F350 CC,LB 6 speed. I pulled an enclosed 4 place snowmobile trailer with 2 sleds and a 700 ATV inside. The EGT's were getting pretty warm. Had to back off quite a bit pulling some of those long hills From central Montana to Denver.
Anyone with a DP Tuner or is thinking of getting one won't be sorry. Even better if you can have Jody live tune your 7.3.
What a difference the live tuning makes. Jody got the EGT's down,while keeping the power there. I was able to pull the trailer in 6th gear almost all the way home. Just had to drop a gear on some very long up hill pulls.
Plus Jody added several tunes,which I found out was part of the live tuning package. I am more than pleased with the results.
Great people to do business with, and their customer service is outstanding.

So glad Jody got your truck dialed in. It was great to meet you and we hope to see you again when we are in Colorado.

Jody comes to Modesto every year, for about the last 4 years. But, Diane never shows up......

I agree. We need to get DP out to Cali, but San Fran is a bit far, lets split the distance and do it at Joey's place.
