This is what I want to hear. The low end torque of 5* AND for it to keep pulling all the way through. Just sent Shawn some funds and am really looking forward to trying them out after work tomorrow.

Shawn, hopefully you send me level 5 tomorrow. If not, let me know which version it is. Thanks again.

People never fail to surprise me...

Thanks for getting to that graph, Corey. Shawn gave me a call but I finally just got home.

Here is one that is VS another well known tuner. Also, note that:

1) It was a 100 degree day after a 2 hour drive to the dyno with little rest
2) This is with a 91 octane tune on Cali gas
3) This is an older version - the newer ones are even more powerful

= I can't imagine what a 93 new version would do on a cool day

I've been running the 91, Level 5 Hot is just that HAWT! His tune is by far the best of my mix. I had my 5* in the other day just to compare IMO it doesn't hold a candle to this tune for low down grunt.
I have access to 94 octane if I want to drive outta my way to get it, I may see if he'll throw a 93 my way, fill this bad boy up and give it a whirl.

Shawn, do you do tunes for the SHO/Flex? My dad has a 11 SHO and is wanting a tune. He was going to go with LMS, but I told him to wait.

I had to drop from the 87 Level 5 to the 87 version of the tune Shawn made for Mike's (mtxpert) wife as instant response isn't good on rough Vermont roads and it was just perfect for me. Responsive but not scary responsive and smooth power throughout. I love it. Now for a tow tune to test this weekend.
Thanks to Shawn for putting the FUN back into my truck!
