Do I need a new tune?

I have an 06 powerstroke that was stock minus a 4 inch exhaust and a sct tuner by innovative extreme street.

Now I have a powermax and a swamps 58v ficm.

truck is laggy smokes like a sob and get bad fuel mileage (well it always did) but I didnt knw if I needed a retune.

I pulled a trailer about 3000 pounds and I got 9.5mpg on the highway doing between 68-70mph

will a retune do anything

Thanks

^^^yes! All you need to do is to either contact innovative and have them reflash your tunes for the pm, or if you want you can try another tuner just let them know you have a pm now. For me, it made a huge difference!

First, I hope your not towing with X-Street. Its not ment to be used to tow at all.

Second, with a new Powermax, and 58v FICM, your airflow and hardware has changed quite a bit. Eric at IDP, does retune for the Powermax turbos, gives them a little more fueling low to aid in spooling them up.

Get the tunes updated, and I'd get a good tow tune, or at least use their Street tune with as light as your trailer is. As always, let us know how it goes for you.

I tow with my x street every weekend. Never had any trouble doesnt run hot at all, and gets better mpg than my tow tune.. I haul a 24' race trailer with a mini sprint in it. When I ordered my tunes I told then what I would be towing and they said I could in the x street as long as it was under 10k.
