Best low end tune?

I am currently running the looney tune and its great but the drivabilty is not up to my wanting. I want more grunt in the lower rpms without the light switch effect, and a tune that's not fell on its face from 45-60 cruising a backroad.That being said I want to try SPD without me having studs, if normally driven with slight sprints every now and then hows the reliability. Anyone running studded tunes without and how's it working out. Just wanting some feedback. Thanks

I personally like Erics FICM tune along with his Street tune, I've been able to maintain 16 city 21 hwy (hand calculated) Not to as snappy as the aggressive street or higher but I can still tow easly without having to switch tunes all the time. Plus it saves my rear tires.

You have to send the FICM to whoever to get it tuned correct?

Looks like they are 400+ for the programmers. So that on top of the $300+ for a SCT and the $100+ for the first set of tunes its close to $1000. Thats a bit steep for me.
