Thanks Doug. Well done.

Doug;

Ran her around for about an hour yesterday (all city driving), and tried to give the truck a chance to learn the new tune (idp race had been on there for about 5k). I tell you what, once the truck started to pick up the tune it ran amazing.

Most people say "Eric's tunes run better than stock", their lying, his tune is more powerful than stock but it does not run better than stock, atleast mine.

Yours on the other hand runs awesome. I can see this really help with city mileage, my truck used to never lock into 5th gear. Yesterday I about crapped my pants when I'd seen that I was doing 1200 rpm @ 40 mph.

How low do you have the shift pressure? Or is that the way to tune runs? I used to have Eric's shift pressure down 20%, but it still wasn't satisfactory. Your tune though, definitely shifts as good, if not better than stock. Unlike Eric's , the only way you can tell if your shifts is by the sound of the motor.

I won't be able to tell mileage for couple weeks though. It does feel like Eric's tune had a little more power, but if I remember you told me this tune was tuned down some for mileage. I didn't get the best look at the gauges, but I think at WOT it was around 1350 degrees @ 28 psi @ ~80mph.

Anyways, if your interested in writing me a full blown race tune I'd be interested. Wish I would have found the greener grass sooner. I am studded with and EGR delete. Hopefully this email did not feel like an electronic BJ.

Lemme know what you think Doug and thanks again,

Kevin

Wasn't bashin innovative, yalls race tunes are sick. I meant as a DD tune, Dougs has treated me much better. I don't have a DD tune from Innovative, I tried the tow tune but there was no luck.

yes i know that, we have talked quite a bit and i've got several different versions of it as well. and i also have adjusted it on my sct, but i am very particular on the trans tuning after going through a trans on my old truck. granted it was a different scenario it just makes me a little skeptical :doh:

I did contact IDP, but they were probably busy at the time. I've ran IDP for nearly a year (maybe more), so its not like their (Eric) bad tuners or something, their great. Not here to grind any gears, just thanking for my new DD tune.

My main point isn't the firmness, its that it would rarely shift into 5th gear in town, I had already adjusted the shift firmness. But shifting doesn't make bad fuel mileage, its trying to get it to shift that does.

As I said, I just wanted a different tune. I never said IDP's tune wasn't good. I just felt Doug's was a little easier on the tranny and the wallet for fuel.
