Just loaded my custom tunes!!!

I finally got my SCT X3 from DJ and all I can say is HOLY S**T!!! I got an economy tune, tow with jake brake tune and a street tune. So far I have only played with the street. I haven't had a smile that big on my face in years!

Thanks DJ and Vivian!

The jakebrake tunes are for towing. From what I understand it uses the turbo to help slow down the engine so you dont have to use the brakes as much.

I haven't had a chance to run my tow tune yet. I think I'll run the street tune all week to see what kind of mpg I get then I'll mess around with the other tunes.

I took my GF for a ride today and she said that "it's scarry!"

does anyone have a vid of this jake brake thing, or does it just use the vanes as an exhaust brake?

The tow tune uses the vanes to slow the truck down. You can tell when you let off the throttle and you hear the turbo spool down and put a load against the motor. I like to use it to help actuate the vanes more, especially if I think they're sticking. Not sure if it helps though.

If you think street is "scary", you need to get the looney. It blows the street tune out of the water...:Thumbup:
