Looney tune

Just got it less that 30 min ago. Drove it about 20 miles runs pretty good then shift is firm but just right . Blows some black smoke but clears up.

Got tune within 10 min of paying for it. It's my first tune. Hopefully my fuel
Mileage jumps from 14 .

So far so good. I had the bully dog power pup and sold it . Didn't leave a artifact on computer (thank god)

From what I've been reading some trucks my year model or 2004 said sometime the truck runs bad . Definitely not the case with my truck.

Two thumbs up

You're going to see higher EGTs tuned, particularly with a street or race level file like you are running.

I'm running a 3.5" DP to factory CAT, and can still lay on my X-Race written for studs and not immediately climb to 1250*.

Give the transmissions a few rows through all the gears, stop to OD at moderate throttle. It will allow for the transmission to adapt and fine-tune to the file properly.
