Anyone tune specifically for a manual transmission?

Considering putting some form of chip/tuner on my truck, but want to know if anyone specifically tunes with that 3rd pedal in mind?

I guess I'm more asking is there any one tuner that has concentrated on tuning for a handshaker vs just making a tune that doesn't include shift points, but is otherwise identical to an AT tune. If you're still saying "they all do" then I'd be surprised, but pleasantly so.

I guess I'm just shocked since there are so few manual trans trucks relative to auto's that I can't imagine all the tuners have taken the time to adjust each of their tunes to better fit a manual.

youd be surprised the amount of standard trucks out there...they are just hard to buy one because anyone who has one doesnt every let go of them. i have a dp-tuner and love mine...granted, i have an automatic so i cannot comment on how it would be with a standard. if my memory serves me correctly i believe they have "cafeinated" and "decafeinated" tunes for manual transmissions...from what i understood at the time, basically the difference between these tunes is how far the rpms drop when you release the gas pedal between shifts. dont quote me on this...i read it very quickly and could be so far off....but, it maybe worth a shot to talk to them about it...if i am wrong feel free to throw something at me

10-4. I agree about them being hard to find...when I bought mine, my requirements/wish list were:

Manual trans, prefer 7.3, 4 door, long bed, hopefully Lariat, definitely manual transfer case, low mileage.

Managed to find all but the "low mileage" wish in the truck I bought...and in searching practically everywhere East of the Mississippi it was the ONLY truck for sale at the time that met all but one of my requirements. If I'd have dropped the Manual tranny requirement, I could have chosen from about a dozen trucks for sale on my local Craigslist alone.

Now, I'm tentatively in the market for a second 7.3, but I want an auto for the wife...so hopefully I'll have more choices

Did you contact dp-tuner and see if they had the "cafenated and de-cafenated" tunes?

The custom tunes for an automatic and a manual are different in more ways then just the transmission aspect.

The fueling aspect on a manual truck is set differently then on an automatic. This is all taken into consideration when we write tunes.
