Lope tune

Hey all, did a search and didnt find the answers I was looking for. What are the pros/cons of having a lope tune? I am going to get a the looney tune for my DD, but thought having one that lopes would be fun? I dont tow that often so I am ok with the canned tune on the sct. My 05 6.0 is stock other than a muffler delete. Checked my EOT/ECT all the times and they are good. Thoughts?

Pro: If you are still in high school...it's cool
Con: Out of high school....your street cred is going to bottom out.

For the cost get a custom tune and be REALLY happy with what you spent.

Not too worried about street cred as I am out of high school, if someone doesnt like it, oh well lol. I will have a dd tune, but thought about buying another one just for fun.

Just doesn't really serve a real purpose. Skip the lope, the Loony will be best.

Yeah I am looking forward to the looney. How long does it usually take to get a custom tune once ordered?

whats wrong with a lope tune? Its just like running a muffler or no muffler. Not gonna be a performance difference really so whats it matter if you just like it for the sound? Only bad thing is i heard that they can be hard on injectors. Not sure if thats true or not though.
