Eric from innovative has the best from what I hear. I run the spartan free tunes. They are on this site somewhere I just don't know how to find them. BTW make sure you set the tire revs per mile, it really makes a difference in the shifting.

So what else is done, you said in your other posts your truck has a few mods to it.... It might help to know whether you need custom tunes.

every truck benifits from custom tuning. you benifit more if you have more done though. do you have gauges? i would imagine that if you do not have a larger turbo then you have stock injectors. if not the egts would get crazy hot really fast. your truck does have some nice supporting mods though. i would say that a goo 130-150hp file would make it run good. most custom tuners will compensate for the tires in the tunes
