questions on innovative tuning???????

Ok I had innovative tuning about 2 years ago...I had a place do headgaskets and studs which was a mistake. Ran it for about 3 months before I poped the gaskets again. That told me it was the innovative tunes......so now I reside the heads myself and had the heads machines and all the good stuff. I've been running gearheads tunes and I love them. Its been over a year since I did my gaskets and its been trouble free. I was wanting to know if anyone else running innovative tunes with studs and egress delete pushed coolant. I was wanting to get there Xtreme race again but am a little timid. Sorry for such the long explanation but I wanted to be clear Haha. Thanks

Re: questions on innovative tuning???????

I had trouble once but i think the problem started out with the banks programmer i initially ran in the truck. after i go the studs/gaskets done I ran Innovatives tunes for a flawless 50k. I wouldnt be scared to run erics tunes. I think you just got a bad taste in your mouth because whoever did youre headgaskets and studs the first time messed up

FALSE..... you drive it like an idiot and treat it like a race car without the maintnence of a race car it will blow.... If you tow a trailer on a hot tune and forget to lift your foot off the floor it will blow.... If you loose an oil cooler and continue to run the truck it will eventually wreak havoc.... do i need to continue lil buddy?

Re: questions on innovative tuning???????

I find that Gearheads tunes are better than Innovatives anyways, so I continue to run them.

Obviously you do....hence why i said all that crap. referring to oil coolers egrs and proper maintnence. in your stated case the driver blows hg's not the tune. the tune helped but ultimatly thats driver error
