Default Tunner Needed.

Hello,

Hey I got a question for y'all.
I just lifted my truck I got a 6" lift 22s on 35s, and my MPG and Power dropped.

Which tunner would be the best fit to regain some of the power and maybe regain a few miles/gallon?


Thanks __________________

Any tuner that will write a custom tune to your particular truck's PCM will work

A tuner will help slightly but you really will need to regear to overcome those big heavy tires to gain full power and driveability. What is your axle ratio?

I recommend MPT for tuning.

I think 4.10 is preferred for 35's. Go with SCT X4 and either MPT or 5*. Will help, but not as much as a regear will.

So whenever I order the tuner and we're talking about custom tunes, do I have to provide the seller with everything that I got?
for example: tire size, rim size, CAI, Exahust, lift kit?

Its better to give too much information then too little when you are communicating with the custom tune writer. Tire size, CAI, exhaust, gearing, everything EVERYTHING!

Yes, call mike at 5 star tuning and he will walk you through it.
