as strange as it seems to me, and i may have misunderstood, but i talked to him yesterday and he said you will get better MPG with the street tune or even the track tune. which leads me to believe that for my 3 tunes i would get the street, race and the tow. don't know if that helps, but i thought i would throw it out there.

thanks, many say the same thing, I just don't tow so I didn't get it!

When I got some tunes from Vivian, I asked about the economy tune, and the Tow tune. I ended up getting a Tow tune, with some economy mixed in. It is the Tune I use daily. Smooth shifts, but pulls REAL hard above 45 with the TC locked...great on the highway, with or without a load. Plus I am seeing about 1.5 - 2 MPG better. It has just enough get up and go to show up about anything I run into.

When I really want to show somebody what's up, I put in Doug's Gonzo, or DJ's Looney tune. :93C_peelo Right now I prefer Doug's Gonzo for all out power, but that is just seat of the pants, I have no numbers to back that up.

I got their newest Tow/Econo tune for the TEC6 and all I can say is :Thumbup: :evil: :bow: . Had about 13,000 lbs and when pulling it I never knew it was back there. I took off from a stand still a little too much on the throttle and the rear tires broke loose till about 25 mph. Course the sheriff's department had something to say about it. No ticket just couldn't believe I did it. Course now the trailer gets soot on it. LOL LOL Street was nice but the Suncoast trans and TC just loves the race file from either Doug or DJ. DJ locks the TC in fifth but Doug locks in thru all gears. Only problem is I have to make sure everything is secure in the cab cause when the TC locks up every shift it is a pretty good jolt. LOL
