What Settings Are You Running on Juice Platinum?

Just wondering what settings (ex. low boost fueling adj., tranny control, etc.) you guys are using. I installed mine a few days ago and have been playing around with the settings but just wanted to know what seems to be the "optimal" settings as you might say. I know it depends on personal preference and driving habits, so if you could include that too it would be greatly appreciated. Also what kinda mileage are you getting? Thanks!

I have mine set on tc lock up, defuel 90% on locked shifts. Last week I got ans SCT with the "EXTREME" tune and it kicks the Platinum all together!! (As much as I hate to admit it.) The Platinum is a really neat set up, but the tranny controls don't really control that much. In my experience with it.:shrug:

Mark I would set mine on SCT mode IF my truck didnt weigh more than 8K lbs and if I wasnt pulling a 46ft. horse trailer. SCT is great I will say, but Edge has some advantages that appealed to my needs more than SCT did.

After doing much research on it finally came to the conclusion, and after talking with ATS on it, SCT is great for tunes if you want to be a fast truck, less towing. Edge tends to be right in the middle, but suited me more for everyday driving with a little kick when I want it, plus some heavy towing. All the built in gauges, for instance ill name a few that all come on the Edge Attitude-Boost, EGT, Barometric PSI,Battery Volts, Speed MPH, Engine Coolant Temp, Engine Oil Temp, Gear (also if Torque Converters locked), Intake air Temp, Load %, Run Time, Trans Slip %, Trans Temp, Throttle %, Boost, RPM, and one of the most useful to me- Backdown % due to High EGT's. Add that on to 6 levels of power that can be changed anytime and I couldnt pass it up. If I wanted more power, I would stack my Edge with an ATS Six-Stage Chip. Ive had great luck with the Tranny upgrades on it to, and the importance of a good tranny tune is very important to me.

Some might argue with me on this, its all personal preference though.
