Thumbs up Recieved sct tuner today

Just received my sct tuner from elite today" HOLY SH..T" this truck came alive
I am using Tadd's insanity program and it definitely has a sweet spot and not even close to having the turbo lag i had before on the bottom end.
The fuel mileage is going to take a back seat for now while i play with this tune.:Thumbup:

yep loving mine also, interestingly enough my mileage is up even with a heavy foot I do keep it within 5 of the speed limit I just get there quicker now. So far messed with a mustang gt, that was fun, and some noisy smallish car that tried to cut me off on a on ramp and I didnt let him pass me. Ive had it about a week now, truck never ran this good with ford working on it. The guys at elite are great to work with.

Last night my buddy recieved a new tune from tad, he said it didnt smoke enough(tad set it up to be easy since he has no guages) so tad retuned and out of his 7' stacks he pours the smoke!!! Very nice power and shifting as well...

No gauges or exhaust as of yet so I take it easy short burst just to get up to speed and then putt along from there. I have had some warranty issues with the truck and it is going in for a sixth time after thanksgiving, different dealer this time and I hope it comes back fixed so I can start adding all the goodies.
I just noticed exhaust buildup around the exhaust manifold ports so Ill have to add that to the list.
