Love me some PHP

Just went on my first trip towing my rig after installing new PHP tunes
Wow is all I can say after running old TS tunes I feel like I am learning to drive a different truck
Power delivery is totally different, EGT’s are lower and hardly any noticeable smoke on 80hp
These new tunes temporally saved me the cost of a turbo to help with EGT's

Real test will be the end of June when we go to Colorado and see how it pulls the passes and I can get a good test on fuel mileage

I bet I will not be dissatisfied

Thank you Bill and Corey

Re: Love me some PHP

I love my php tunes. Towed about 14,000 lbs. this past weekend and it pulled it like a champ in the 60 tow. Was still plenty of power there.

Thanks for the posts, Guys! Glad we could make you smile. Love the title, too -- I use "Love me some..." all the time.

I pulled about the same weight but used 80 tow and it stayed under 1300 it was great.
I could never do that with my old TS tunes on 75hp.
But I still can't wait to hit the mountians

Tholt I noticed you have Glowshift gauges How do you like them ?
had someone asking me today about them

Re: Love me some PHP

I like them, this is my second truck with a set of them and they have seemed to work really well. Installation went pretty easy and i like that you can change the color while driving down the road. Couldn't beat the price either in my opinion.

You used the 60 tow with that much weight? I was reading on there web site that thats the light tow up to 7600lbs. I need more towing power and this might be the fix.
