Re: 100 or 80

Yes, and call Jody he can explain. He told me 80E is design for driving down the highway, no towing. Just not for racing or towing.

Re: 100 or 80

I like the 100 a lot better, esp. the trans. shifting. I find myself hardly ever in anything else. I have a problem keeping my foot outta it anyway so economy doesn't help...lol

Re: 100 or 80

Don't know how much difference there is between the 100 and 120 tunes, but I really like the 120 race tune. Although, I like the shifting/lockup of the 80E tune much more than the 120 race.

Re: 100 or 80

Do you mean the 100 performance tune? I didn't know he had a 100 race tune.

I've got both, and for the money, don't waste it on 80E. I get better mileage in the 100 performance and 140 aggressive tunes anyway. Either get a tow tune, or don't get anything. Not worth 45 bucks to get the same fuel mileage.

Re: 100 or 80

I like the way the 120 and 140 run, i have 80e but never use it, i run around in 140 and drop down to 120 if i start to smoke (stop and go or hills). And get just as good as the 80e mileage

Re: 100 or 80

My DD tune is the 100 performance tune. I like the way it shifts and it smokes less than my 80e.

Re: 100 or 80

I was running the 80E tune for a while as my DD tune, then I switched to the 120R tune for DD. I liked how the tranny worked on the 120R, fuel mileage wasn't anything to brag about, but my truck never got "great" mileage anyways. If I run in "modified stock", my milage goes up significantly over any other program, including the 80E...

Re: 100 or 80

I'm working with Jody to change the 80E tune. It's not a tune for traffic. I had him open up the TC lock/unlock and the 4-3 3-4 shifts to make it more drivable. It doesn't lug anymore. I think my mileage has creeped up as a result. I tried the 100 tune (as a trial). I only had a day to run it before the trial expired. It seemed to be more behaved than the 80E. It all seems to be shifting when and where.
