Re: what tunes should i buy next

first of all please elaborate on the deal with swamps. Whats going on there? Or do you just wanna leave it unsaid?

12mpg has nothing to do with the tuner, you've got an underlying cause.

But if your just looking to get your question answered, id give matt a holler.

So....have you talked to Swamps about being unhappy with your new tunes, or ??

And you don't need to pull the battery cables to remove your chip, just make sure the keys aren't in the ignition. I've pulled my chip many times without unhooking the batteries, with no issues, as have many others.

Re: what tunes should i buy next

Id be checking for boost leaks, exhaust leaks, fuel leaks, etc as far as the 12mpg are concerned.

Sounds to me like your comin on here askin if any of the tuners are any good at what they do, with your post count thats not gonna over to well with some of the higher ranking members.

If none of them were good at what they do they wouldnt do it

Re: what tunes should i buy next

ye i was in a hurry when i did it but had to buy a new awa3 that wasnt fun but one of the good guys of psn took care of me.

no i havnt talked to swamps again

me and a buddy got are chips at the same time

and i took a bone stock 01 but a edge evolution on it and raced his 01 that has been swamped and he has a built tranny and
stock with edge pulled right past him so

thats what really changed my mind on swamps

and better fuel mpg would be nice on my tuck i drive like a old man on trips and still get 12 at best

Agreed.

And I find the best way to improve fuel mileage is to start with the person who's behind the wheel. Learn to coast instead of mashing the brakes, start off nice and smooth, roll slowly into the throttle, and don't blow any smoke.

With those kind of mods to the driver you can sometimes pick up several mpg's. No one would say it's fun though.

Re: what tunes should i buy next

If your truck is in good running condition, and you drive it easy, it would be getting at least 15, prolly closer to 17mpg. So it obviously has an issue. And comparing your truck in a race against another when yours has issues is by no means a fair comparison. Are the trucks even identical anyways?

If you're not willing to first call your current tuner to let them know of an issue and to try different tunes, they can't help you.

I encourage you to try another tuner, that way you can rule out the tunes being the problem. Good luck.

Re: what tunes should i buy next

I would see if Swamps can make it right. If they dont make you happy go with Beans. I personally love their tunes. I got 21.6mpg on my last trip with mine.
