Economy Tune on PHP Gryphon
I just got my PHP Gryphon installed and I didn't have time to install the thermocouple yet. I had to leave for my road trip to Utah. I have the option for custom tunes but it takes a few weeks.
In the mean time I thought I'd try the canned tunes.
Transmission just changes shift points everything else is normal.
Economy I ran this and was getting significantly better mileage but the thing I noticed is in town it doesn't spin the turbo at all. I'm seeing 1 or 2 boost at most unless I punch it then the turbo kicks in. On the highway at 70mph I only have 4 boost normaly.
My concern is will this hurt the turbo? Everyone says drive it like you stole it but 3 mpg is significant on a 1500mile roadtrip.
Toe mode is 65hp and can't recall torque don't want to use this for cruising I'd expect it to suck a lot more fuel.
Extreme is 100hp and 200torque and I'm scared to try it with stock head bolts
Just looking for advise from people who ran this stuff or what your thoughts on this is
