Who to get new tunes from?

I run DJ's Looney tune daily and love it but Ford needs to reflash my truck and since DJ isnt in business anymore was wondering the best place to get new tunes?

I run Eric and Cales tunes. I have the X-Race from Eric which is an awesome tune and had a ton of power, but the shifting takes a little bit of getting used to if you try to use it as a daily driver. I run Cales 140 tune as my everyday driver and I couldn't ask for more from a tune. The power is there if you want it, but you don't have to use it. Also, the torque converter doesn't lock up as quick on Cale's tunes as it does on Eric's tune which makes it easier to drive. Hope this helps some.

I have DJ's and ID's, The x-tream street is a good daily driver, If you go with innovative's tunes get the 3 tune package, it's more cost effective.
The looney tunes drive different than ID's,diffrent shift points, TC lock up.

Im looking for the closest thing I can get to the Looney, its the perfect tune for my truck, perfect shift points, power when I need it and good driveability.

I hear ya. I'd be sad if I ever lost my Looney! I go out of my way to not have the truck reflashed. Sometimes it costs me more....

since you want the same feeling tune as your one from DJs is it possible to email the file to any of the other tuners for them to see it, then re write it for your new strategy ?

I'm pretty sure each tuner has their tunes encrypted so people can't just copy them.

They said they needed to reflash and start from scratch to see what caused my gauge cluster to quit, instead they "borrowed" a pcm from another customers truck and put on mine so they didnt have to reflash.
