I emailed Vivian at quick tricks and am waiting for a reply, i am pumped to try out the new "Looney Tune". Is anyone running this and if so what do you have to say about them?

Why is it junk?
I am not impressed with Elites tranny tuning, it seems like power comes on very late. Locked in 5th gear it pulls hard but not as hard as my brothers innovative tuned truck. I am going to try something different. Like many people have said before, some tunes work for some people, and some dont. I just need to find the one that works for me.

its not that its junk. he just tunes differently. he is not hard on the trans though. ive ran the hell out of my truck with elite tunes with my 205s and HO. runnin 12.6 all day long lifted on 35's. trans lived forever. when i was stock i liked erics tunes better because of how he locks the tc while daily driving. with that bigger turbo and injectors i couldnt have it locked like that because of heat. why dont you just get innovative tunes?

Well i loaded Vivians "Looney Tune" today and the only thing i have to say is WOW!! This tune rocks. Shifting is spot on no more hickups or wierd shifting like the Insanity file. That file will never be loaded into my truck again! The looney tune makes very good power. Vivian is awesome to work with too! Now that i have a few miles on it i would recomend it. Ill run it more and see but so far so good!!

I have a looney with extra smoke from Vivian that I got about a month ago maybe. Power is good, I like the smoke, just enough without being too much, and it's nice for every day driving. If I hit the track, I'm putting Innovatives tunes back on, they just feel faster, and they definitely shift faster. I am happy with the tune though. I have some transmission quirks though that Vivian is trying to help me alleviate. So far nothing has worked, but I am hopeful. This could just be an issue with my truck and not the tuning at all though...
