It will break traction at 20mph. I watched my boost on my way home today under wot and was at 27psi and saw 29psi when it shifted. Had to let off because I was going 85mph in a matter of seconds. Very noticeable difference between tow and hot using the sotf switch. Once itís programmed you just use the sotf switch for different levels of power. This is my work/play truck so I keep it on level 3 which I think is 100hp and switch to level 2 for towing.
Thats good to know. I have spare phone laying around i can use. Sounds like that tune is working pretty good. I have my 5 inches exhaust coming in and i'm about to order a knock off no limit stage 2 intake. It use the same filter as the no limit and it coated to different color to match the truck and cost about 200 only.

how does the trans shifts and do you notice a different in the trans shifting when you chose a different power level?

so your saying its just defuel on different power level but the boost psi and timing stays the same?

More or less, that's what I'm saying. I'm no expert on tuning the 6.7 or any other engine, but the since the tunes are loaded into the PCM (and that takes time) my logic says that all the switch does is affect the fuel pressure on a given setting. I may be oversimplifying it and I may be completely wrong. It would be great if one of the real tuners would explain it in depth.

Yeah coming from the import world with turbocharge and tuning on the dyno with full standalone. It doesn't sound too good if the switch is just detuning the fuel and not a actual new map per setting.

You're talking about totally different things. The difference is with a full dyno tune is adjusting every parameter you can to squeeze out as much as you can without breaking it. The SOTF tunes are designed for max performance (if you buy up to that level) and with the switch, simply cuts fuel, timing and boost. So yes, they are safe, and are not changing the entire map of the truck on the fly, that would be ridiculous. This is my take on them, I could be wrong on it.

I personally don't care for them though, I don't really believe in them. Haven't been in a 6.7 with them, but my friend had an 06 LBZ with PPEI SOTF tunes, and I couldn't tell a difference when the switch was on 3, or 5. Only thing I could tell when it was on 5 is that it didn't have enough fuel which on a Dmax is a common problem with HP tunes.

So with that in mind, when you are on a "single" tune (like the tow/brake), does it matter which position the switch is in?

I just got the EZLYNK with the Tyrant tunes, so still playing with the different levels using the SOTF switch, so can't comment yet on being able to tell the dif. I started on 2 and switched to 3 now. That seems like a good level so far.

The tow/brake tune if freakin' awesome for towing my 16K lbs 5th wheel!! Love it!!
