The Looney tune was from the defunct DJ's Performance. It is now available from Vivian at Quick Tricks Automotive Performance.

The original looney files were from DJ's performance. Vivian (Mombenz) is now with Quick Tricks Automotive Performance. I had bought my X-3 years ago for her, she is GREAT to deal with. You can try calling or send her an e-mail. It may take a couple of days, but she will get back to you.

Here's a copy from there web site.
SCT*CUSTOM TUNING for Ford 6.0L (2003 - 2007)

For stock trucks we charge $50 for one file and $40 for each additional for the same truck with the same tuner.* Injector and/or non vgt turbo files are $65 for the first file and $55 for each additional for the same truck with the same tuner.

We would need to know the year of your truck, model, 4x4 or 4x2, auto or manual transmission, gear ratio, revs per mile based on your tire size or your three tire dimensions, your strategy and the serial number from you SCT.

This is the calculator we use to figure your revolutions per mile: Tire size calculator

We used to use Redrock to convert standard to metric cause Powerdog only does the conversions in metric but Redrock no longer offers the calculator. I found this one DML Tire and Wheel Calculator which seems to work well.

We*would also need to know your name, address and telephone number.** Our Paypal account is techmiami123@yahoo.com.

We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover.*
Here is a little bit of information*as to*what applications our tunes are designed for:
Economy is designed for bumper-to-bumper traffic to reduce turbo lag.* We've been told you can save between 2-4 mpg. (40rwhp)
Tow is designed for pulling.* A normal tow file is about 50hp, when aggressive can range between 65-75.* We can also add jake brake to any tune, except Looney.* This feature works with the exhaust back pressure in your truck.
Street is designed for highway driving.* It's drivability parameters are intensified for ease in passing and maintaining higher speeds for longer periods of time. (90-120rwhp)
Looney is designed for city driving and the track.* It is the highest race tune that we will send via the net without physically tuning your truck. (130-160rwhp)

We have varying degrees of towing options and jake brake is available.* Let us know what you are looking for and we'll suggest what would work best for you.*

Thanks I did see that. I was wondering more about the SOTP feel of the tune. Innovative and Gearhead have similar power gains but are different in their own way. Just want to know people's thoughts about it

SOTP, Extreme street and Looney feel about the same except the Looney don't lock the TC at 40mph, it only locks in OD.

Extreme Race and Looney Wild (race) feel about the same, except the Looney Wild don't lock the TC in 2nd gear, it locks in OD.

Ok thanks...that's good info. I kind of like the idea of Looney Wild locking in OD. I might have to try that one out. I'm about to go out and put in Eric's XRace which I just got today. I'm interested to see how much of a difference there is from the XStreet. I'm still waiting for Matt's SRL+. So far his regular SRL is my favorite.

The extreme race locks the TC in 2nd gear, you may have to change your driving habits alittle. Tends to lug the motor down when you ease into the throttle. You either have to lay down on the skinny pedal faster to downshift or tap the brake pedal to unlock the TC so it can downshift sooner.

I just took the truck for a ride with the XRace and I was pretty happy with it. I thought it would be a little unstreetable for a DD tune but that doesn't seem to be the case. It does lug down a little but not enough to bellow out a ton of smoke. The power on tap is awesome too. It pulls like a freight train.
Sorry for the hijack by the way...
