Which one would you pick? i do alot of around town driving so ive herd the econo tune is alittle slugish on the low end. i dont do any towing but ive seen alot of people like to run the tow tune for normal driving. i want better fuel economy but ive read for the most part all the setting get pretty much the same mpg as long as you stay out of the throttle. and i want the power to be there if i wanna play. im leaning toward the street race, but i dont want alot of smoke. and i can always add tunes in the future. I know I know "call tony"... i will. just want some others opinions. i was going with the DP tunner but TW seems to be the new guy on the block and i like the free reburns.

BTW i have an 02 f250 TB exhaust + intake


also i found this site thats $50 cheaper on the tw chips $250 for single tune, 2 position for $300

I have the DP and I keep mine in the 100hp or 125hp tune and I think that would be equvalent to Tony's Street Race Tune.

What about his rice burner tune? Im pretty sure im doin a little better than that...my hypercrap guaranteed 100hp....and his chip was night and day difference from stage 3 on that thing.

I promise you that Hyertech was not 100hp TW and DP are the real deal but even with them you still have to have enough fuel and air flow to get the full potential of the chip

Let me put it this way like you said with the hypertech tune I had the TS Perf. on their so called 100hp tune and Jody's 100hp custom tune(DP) is a big diff. over the TS

If I had to choose one tune it would be my 60tow.

I have never herd of an economy tune that was sluggish on the bottom end because they advance the timing and that spools the turbo faster. I love to tow with my economy tune because it lights the turbo easier with the load.

theres a big difference on how a truck is gonna perform compared to an excursion. Put them both in a truck and make your judgement:thumb: To the OP I love my 120 race tune. My truck isnt a work tune so its perfect for me. Like strokin said too, the 60tow is awesome as well

You'll aways wonder what the others are like if you don't get them all. Get 5-6 tunes. What's another $200? If you don't have the money now, wait till you do. You said you want performance when you need it and mileage when you don't, right? That's why you get more than 1 tune. There is no 1 tune that does it all.

hmm.. I'm torn between his hot tow tune and his "daily" tune.... If I really had to choose I think it would be the daily tune
