Feeling like a little kid.

Got my SCT SF3 in the mail about 30 min ago just got off the phone with Vivian @ Quick Tricks. Tunes will be here in about and hour or so. The waiting is killing me, cant wait to wake up the beast. Oh, and for the curious out there I got the Looney and the Tow tunes.

On a bit of a down note I found out my strategy is VXCF9H7. Wish I could slip the guy at the dealer a $20 and have it rolled back.

Any of the well known tune writers can set you up with tune. The funny thing about custom tunes is, tunes written for my truck/strategy,driving style may not act the same in someone else's truck or driving style. You will just have to play "eny meany miney mo". You can't go wrong with any of these.

Alright, sorry guys been busy all day getting ready for a move. Anyway, got the tuner in the mail this morning and immediately called Vivian @ QuickTricks and got the Looney and the Tow tunes. Took about 2 1/2 hrs and I had my tunes. Had to run over to a friends house to update my tuner and load the tunes cause SCT's wont work on Mac's. Didn't get a whole lot of time to play with it but from what I could tell its a whole other animal now.

Some notes about the Looney:

It smokes a bit more than I expected it to but not enough to black out an intersection.
I noticed what alot of guys were sayin about the light switch when you really get on it.
And I also noticed it revved alot higher before it shifted when I was really layin into it; I thought it should have shifted sooner, but man does it scream.

This is my first experience with tunes so I'm not sure exactly how it was supposed to perform other than what I've read on here. So, any input is appreciated on things I might need Vivian to tweak.
