I was running RCD's track only tune when I raced an Camaro and it didn't feel like it was running right. It normally pulls hard all the way past 100 but once I hit 70 it didn't pull hard and I lost. I loaded the street version and it felt fine at first but when I was driving home it wouldn't go past 20lbs of boost. It is not wanting to shift either. I don't know what is wrong. The EGT's don't go over 800. The tranny temps were aroun 174 or so, the ECT's were around 194, and the oil was 94-96 on the livewire. If anybody has had any similar issues please help me out. Thanks.

Also with both tunes it normally pours out smoke but now there isn't any at all.

That's what I was thinking at first but it won't boost past 20psi. It will rev up but there is a long delay before it finally shifts.

Its not building boost cause the motor is kinda just free reving by the sounds of things.

try to reload the tune. mine did the same sort of thing after the dealer ran their computer through it with my 275 loaded. the truck would blow a very slight haze of smoke at most and would barely get out of its own way. I reloaded the tune and it was back to normal.

Thanks. I'll try that.

I reloaded the tune and so far it seems to be working.
