Shifting was good also, 3-5 shift a little hard but it has been with other tunes as well. On a side note this tune shifts like the early version of the 310 and the how the 275 shifts I believe. Better for towing IMO.

1050 EGT's max with that tune? That's crazy. My stock truck on 37's hits 1200's easy on hills. I've been watching the DashDaq, wishing tunes were in it.
