Re: Thoughts

I personally have never ran them. But i have some family and friends back in IL, and thats all they use. I took a couple for a ride in my truck, and they liked the tune i was using alot more. Said the power was great and most of all the shifting was spot on also where i have seen alot of rcd tuning have shifting issues.

i am using matts srl tune.

Re: Thoughts

yea my RCD tunes had good power but I received a nice little shift flare from running them. the pedal was weird also. it had very little power and then it just came on. It would sometimes turbo surge when I was at heavy pedal shifting into overdrive. I did race my brothers cummins with their street tune and beat him. He has a tuner too. I just had it on the street tune not even the race tune. Good power but very different from my SRL and innovative tunes.

Re: Thoughts

Matt @ Gearhead, Eric @ Innovative, or Doug @ GoGo are the best tuners for the 6.0.

SRL, Extreme Street, and Dougs race all produce within 10-15 horsepower, all shift about the same. Innovatives is a little smokier during the lag period. Havent had a chance to get dougs race tune yet.

I have a customer in a worktruck on Innovative street knocking 19mpg's ( his claim ) with a CCLB with in bed cabin thing with some tools/equipment.

Moderators are the best!!

I'm waiting on [email protected] to send me tunes so I can see what there like. That reminds me I haven't got them yet guess ill have text him and see where they are.
