DP Tuner and Econo Tune

Just got my DP tuner installed and working properly. The power difference is amazing, it truely is like a brand new truck.

I got the 60HP Tow tune, 80HP Econo Tune, and 120 Race tune. Question I have is, on the Econo tune, is it normal for it to have almost no power before 1600 RPM? If I go up a hill (empty) and have it anywhere below 1500 RPM I have to downshift to get it above 1600RPM so I have enough power to get up the hill. Once it gets above 1600RPM, it takes off and you can def. feel the additional 80 HP. Below that, is has ALOT less power than stock. Is this normal?

The 60HP Tow and 120 Race tunes seem to work excellent, its only the 80 Econo tune that doesn't feel right.

the ONLY complaint i have with my dp tuner chip is that on 80hp "econo" (auto trans btw), it shifts into 2nd & 3rd too low in the powerband when i don't get on it.. leaves me putting. the stock tune with the intake & exhaust is what i ride around on now because it shifts MUCH softer. also even weirder (that a word?) is that on the 120 tune it shifts fine.

I'd say the sluggish power below there is because he pulled fuel away at those rpm's because that would be a cruise or driving around situation so that would be how you get better economy out of it.

That's what I was thinking, just wasn't sure if that would be a possibility.

When I run my 80 eco tune it has very good power down low. I also don't like the way that it shifts. I am waiting on my Trango shift, I'll see if it helps the shifts.

The 60 and 80 econo programs really are not meant for driving in town... Thats how they get better MPG is by keeping the RPM's down...

What would be the recomended town tune? stock? tow? 120 race? I thought the econo was for town. This is very interesting. You got me curious now.

I'm not speaking for the man, but it makes since... Your never going to get good MPG in stop and go town driving... Just not going to happen, but unloaded running down the hwy is where the econo tunes are going to shine. Myself, I run the highest setting I can get away with...but the wife use's a 80hp program on her X...
