i would honestly just get everyones tunes... its not a lot of money to get a race and daily from each person. I change it up weekly each person shines but unless you actually have the tuner work with you its just pretty generic.

everyone is different how they tune and drive. Its like beers, some people like coors, some like budlight...but have similar results.

I've run PHP, geerhead, 1023. 1023 are the best for me. PHP uses too much PW so the tunes are much smokier than 1023 and I thought geerhead was pretty much a complete mess so I never use those.

I'd love some live tuning but am starting to believe the stage 2 A code injectors from PIS may be the issue I have with them being so damn smokey.

Agree Tmccoy. PHP make good power but are Smokey as hell. I too am running PIS injectors so maybe it’s them? But 1023 tunes are much cleaner.

When I was running POS 175/80’s, my back corner of my truck stayed sooted up, when I swapped to FF 180/80’s it has stayed clean back there. Just a slight haze on the bumper when I tow a lot. And I tow on the GH All Out tune.

So again, what do you like about each? If you donít feel like saying it publicly please PM me.

Iím definitely not stock, so they would be custom tailored to my application. I wonít be racing or getting on the dyno. So I donít see tunes from everyone being overly realistic for me.

I liked the power of the DP and PHP but not the smoke. So I tried 1023 and they are cleaner and may idle a bit quieter but the power is down compared to the other two and the transmission strategy isn’t as good either. Now this is my opinion. Now I haven’t had time to send data logs for revisions so without that all tunes are just a shot in the dark really.

I have used GH almost exclusively on all the 7.3’s I’ve tuned and done injectors in. A few PHP’s thrown in there, with no complaints, on early 99 or E series stuff that GH couldn’t tune.
A friend of mine that I built a set of 250/100’s for has GH and Jelibuilt tunes and his best dragstrip times/mph’s are always on GH tunes.

Interested as I hope to start working on the 03 soon and will need tunes hopefully later this year.

From my experience with many different tuners the key is Data logging with revisions. No two trucks running the same set up are the identical. Regardless of the tuner that you are working with you have to work with them, and them with you, to make it better. This is my reasoning for using GH. I have not used another tuner that will work with a customer remotely with such dedication to make it right. Just my personal opinion. I told him give me all the fuel and keep the rods in the block. He obliged, made it idle like stock and scream like a fuk when requested. Trans tuning was the best I have had for a fully built BTS with all options. Just work with whatever tuner you are using to make the most of your tunes.
