Thinking About Running Eric's Xtreme Race... Without studs?

Hey guys! I'm thinking about running Eric's Xtreme Race tune without studs? Does he have specific tunes for trucks without studs? Give me your thoughts, comments, etc!

Yes, he makes X race safe for stock headbolts, but that is not a guarantee. There is always a chance that your hg's will go, some trucks blow them stock. Mine vents coolant with X race if I do a hard accel with the a/c on.

If you're worried about blowing the HG's, then you really shouldn't be racing. As said above, it could happen stock.

You WILL be doing studs if you run that tune daily.

Re: Thinking About Running Eric's Xtreme Race... Without studs?

extreme race is alittle tough for daily driving since the converter locks up might wanna try the extreme street tune instead. I used to keep my truck in that tune everyday and didnt really run into to many problems

It's a gamble, you never know. Try one of his lower power tunes if you're worried.
