I have an Xcal 2 as well and just switched from the SRL from Matt at Gearhead to a Panty Dropper tune from Chris at TSD. I like the Panty dropper tune better.

Ok This is all new to me lol but thanks
So i put a canned tune on truck woke up big time but i have now got the check enigne light on with code p1102 MAF.
Did some reading and if i have a leak in the intake or even around the turbo it could bring the light on .
Well the turbo is leaking both front and back where the clapms are. So i need new ones where can i get new clamps from ???
also before any one asks my truck is all stock apart from the 4" turbo back exhaust and no codes before tune went on truck .
Thanks for any info of how to deal with this.

You sure it was an X2 you got? X2's can hold custom tunes from what I know.
As for the clamps, I found them at NAPA for a buddy of mine when he broke the back clamp to the down pipe. We live close to the distribution center so getting one was easy, but you might have to order one and have it delivered to the nearest location to you.

I'd be curious how well those duratracs hold up, I've been thinking I might go with MT/R's next

My last set of tires were Duratracs and I really liked them. I suggest this though.... rotate them religiously! Mine didn't last as long as I would have liked them too, but I didn't roate them as much as I should have.

thats what im hearing about these tires plus i have had to mess with the pressures as they were flexing in the side wall to much and giving the death wobble !!!.
1 more question for you guys does any one know of the size of the turbo clamp on the front of the turbo i know the down pipe one is 3 1/2 in which i have got now from nappa but its the front one that is leaking bad
Thanks chris
