question about tunes
I have had a few questions for someone that knows more than i do. I have been running ID xtreme street tune for most of my trucks life. about 25k. I work the truck pulling a 33ft camper a few times a year. My jeep trailer almost every weekend, and a 9ton tilt deck with a track loader a few times a week.
I am wondering what the difference is in the higher power tunes. I still get a little puking every once and a while with the xtreme street tune. I have only used my extreme race file a few times. Beating on it about all you could, it would not puke a drop. There is a good jump in power, and the truck is faster with the xtreme race. Is it possible the xtreme race tune is easier on the motor
Is there anything I would be hurting running the race file every day and towing other than the obvious, tranny, head gaskets. I have always thought if the intercooler lines stay on and the egt are below 1300-1400 I am ok.
The truck has a egr block off, stock intake, 3.5 downpipe, and right now 5" off the downpipe with a dump right before the rear tire. WOT gets me about 1200 unloaded with the x street tune.
From the little bit i have used it, it seems the x race tune in general runs better, smoother, and with more power and no puking compared to the x street tune. So the question all this brings is, is there any reason not to do what I have been doing with the x street, with the x race?
