I have the tow tune for a 2013. To me, it drives and shifts just like stock but has more power. Plus it will shift crisper once you put your foot into it

Thanks for the input, going to order there stuff.
I'm looking forward to the exhaust brake. I have the same complaints as what you just mentioned with the GH tunes. It was try there stuff or by an EZ lynk.

I just switched to Cale's tunes from GH, and you won't be disappointed. Everything works like it's supposed to. Having my exhaust brake back is awesome!

You could start by explaining why they're so superior. How's the timing? Is it safe, or will it allow a clear view into the block? How's the boost pressure, shifting, mileage, smoke, EBP, & EGT?

Do this rather than acting like a sack of a$$holes.

Sorry, apparently feelings get hurt around here easily. Exactly the reason why America is falling apart.

As for posting about the tunes on page one I have explained why I think they're better. Maybe others who run the tunes can chime in so its not such a biased opinion.

It's nothing to do with feelings getting hurt. It's that you lashed out at a good natured individual who showed no aggression. Pus*y move in my books...

Yeah no sh!t dude, how bout you sack up and post your own thread with informed insights or facts and comparisons to the other tunes and how Tyrant stacks up against GH.

As for your "America falling apart" remark, I'd argue it's entitled little a$$ hats's like you that are ruining it. Where in Jomax's comment did he warrant a reply like that?

If anything you'll steer more people away from Cale's tuning than encourage them to try it out, with an uninformed reply like that.

I'll have a thread soon with 3 of the big name tuners including Cale, gh, and spar*@n on my 13 with a 15 retro kit with a drop in turbo, dual pumps, h&s lpfs so maybe we can have some hard data on a pre 15 truck with mods. It will be same dyno, same day, same truck with some miles loaded and unloaded. Hopefully I'll have pros and cons of each and I'll have graphs to show the data.

Well if you're going to do that, I see no reason to put mine back on the dyno. Regardless of your mods, dyno'ing all the tunes on one platform is usable data. I'm still going to get Cale's tunes just to see how they match up against P!P, Sp@rtan and GH/AS, but I don't think I'll re-dyno them.

I was in no way trying to tell you to not do the comparison. I appreciate all the data and testing you have done. I just thought having all your data and mine being a pre 15 with certain mods may be able to help show the pros and cons of each on different but similar trucks.

Oh no, don't worry, I just see no point in going back to the dyno when you're doing it. I can focus more on driveability since that seems to be the focus for most people.

I completely agree, you can never have enough info, lol. I just see no point in comparing numbers on the dyno at this point for me, when I think most the guys on here would like to see how they stack up on the street.

Very true. Street manners is most important to me also.

there is really no reason for an answer like this. instead, you could have said "yes, you should try them"...

driving styles differ from person to person so who knows, it could be that there is no difference in them and could be a waste of money.

your previous post explains your findings well and is useful info, but when you reply like you did, it makes you look like a asshat...

I've had as/gh and cales. Cales all day for me. Not too say gh is bad but Cales were that much better, for me.

What was it that you liked most about Cales over gh/as. I have gh but am contemplating more of Cales. I have his tow and like it but contemplating getting his street

I would be interested in a GH comparison on a 13-14 with a H&S device. Has anyone done this?

Well got the tyrant mcc tunes loaded today. I was currently running gh and had zero complaints. Just wanted to try cales tunes since his 7.3 tuning is better than others I've tried. No dyno numbers yet but by the seat of the pants, these tyrant tunes are UNREAL and trans tuning is perfect. My truck is fully ******d, stock turbo and fuel for now, lifted with 37s and all the ouo goodies. So in the coming days when I can get off I'll be going to the dyno with tyrant and gh mcc tunes, ******* ndash, and possible Ezlync with ppei tuning.

I'll be getting dyno numbers all of which will be done on the same day, towing numbers and also unloaded numbers and a mix of city and highway driving.

He is. Don't think he does much but I couldnt get spot on tuning for our (ffd/BTS) dual hpops from anyone but him. But he was tuning these dual pumps for a while so he had some good files to run.

Right on. Im not a bad customer to tune for. I know what i want and dont want and even have suggestions for things that i wish were different based on my combination of parts. I always just run to Bill@php but my php 6 pos chip got busted so Im trying as much as I can.

So far i love the tyrant 7.3 tuning and I've tried others as well. And have nothing bad to say about the others by any means. His just seems to work better for me anyways.

What's the best way to get ahold of Cale? I have his tunes on my 7.3 and they've needed to be updated for a while, a long long time ago he said he'd send me some new files but that never happened. I'd like to get some better tunes (less smoky) in case my 7.3 sticks around for a while.

I'm getting around 15 in town and driving 80 on the highway. If I drive right I'm getting 17-18 on interstate. I'm also slightly lifted on 37s, and fully delet*d etc.

I drive on the performance tune 24/7 unless I'm towing heavy which I don't plan on doing with this truck.

Yes. Since I'm doing a dyno shoot out with a few different tuners I told him I wanted a max effort tune so I'm not sure if he gives everybody that tune or if he's a lil more conservative and safe for others.

Ok thanks. I'm trying to compare apples to apples here. I hear real good things about the Tyrant tunes but don't want to spend the money if they are no better or get terrible mileage. I'm running the P I P Extreme tune currently getting 17-18 mpg back and forth to work which is mostly highway. Highway to me is 75+ mph.

All race tunes get the same from most of the tuners.

Tyrant and gerhead both netted me 14.5ish. Each time I Drove the EXACT same route.

If you plan on running the tyrant race tune 24/7. You might want to see if he has a mellowed version? It seemed a bit too smokey for DD for me.

Mine runs clean and smoke free until full throttle. It's really not dirty at all.

Yea mine is a 13. The guy asking has a 12 according to his sign so I knew our setups would be similar. Why would a 15 run dirtier? I'm just curious because I really have no clue

I think Mike is saying the opposite. The 15 is a bigger, laggier turbo. I would assume it would smoke more on spool up but maybe clean up more once spooled as it makes more boost. That is how mine seems to respond anyways. Different tunes thou.

Programming is different along with turbo and fuel pump.


But, I'm super picky about smoke. Truck drives in all conditions, from driving on the interstate passing semis and idiots, to bumper to bumper traffic in downtown Los Angeles, to stop and go traffic in Beverly Hills. I get enough looks there, that the last thing I need is leaving smoke behind.


I do all this in a day so I get to see exactly how my truck responds to tunes.

IMHO, there isn't a better test someone can do.



When I feel like seeing how a tune compares, I load up a tune home and drive all the way to my destination(380miles). Then on the way home, I switch to another tune and compare.

On my 15 the tyrant is less smokey in all situations. The first tune he sent the truck fell flat on its face until it spooled with zero smoke. I couldn't handle not having the power on tap. Then I had Cale send another which was labeled "Smokey" and it's very strong but still smokes less than my G-head which I didn't consider bad. Under normal conditions I can always drive it smoke free with both. The exhaust brake just puts Tyrants over the top

Alright I finally bit the bullet and got a Tyrant tune. I started off with his extreme tune, thinking that if I liked it I would follow it with a tow tune. After a couple small tweaks he's got it dialed in. This thing runs like it never has. He gave me a little more fuel down low to give it more pep, which in turn makes it a bit smokier. Normal driving, it doesn't smoke at all, if I gouge on it, it does smoke some but that's to be expected as far as I'm concerned. Love the tune.

Agreed 100%. Just the few pictures you've sent me that thing has to be dialed in to even take it where you go. Too much traffic for driveability issues.

Tyrant still has work to do for the exhaust brake. Doesn't work for me. It works for a second then turns back off. I know from looking at the boost and EBP.

Maybe my truck is just different, I have the most updated tune from Mike for GH for the Race tune and I believe the most updated tyrant Race tune. Tyrant leaves a more concentrated cloud then GH has ever for me.


Not knocking down tyrant at ALL. I just don't see how it can smoke less in their Race tune vs GH.

My comparison is on Both companies RACE tunes.

I heard that. My brake is flawless so far. I've only had the tune since the end of July. I don't think I had the latest version of th GH as ive had the same one since last October. I was very happy with the GH just wanted to check out other options. Both ran on the race tune.

I've had Tyrants extreme tune in for a while. I have a clean and dirty , both with brake. Tunes are highly subjective and I don't think some are better than others, just different. Depends on your driving style. Cales tunes are very drivable , low smoke and I notice peak boost about 34 psi, as where my PIP extreme tune is a few psi higher. I run 1/4 mile at about sea level and cales tunes are about .3 secs faster for my truck. 2015 - 250 on 35s

Finally got Cales Tunes on my 15, must say its a big difference from the ******* tuning i had, trans tunes are super nice.
4th gear locked seems like im having a hesitation on power, like the rail pressures is dropping? Any Input?

Gotcha. I remember getting tunes directly from him a while back and he was my point of contact, but he's been MIA since then. I'm sure he's been busy or trying to stay under the radar. Completely understandable. I've been running new tunes with my ez Lynk and am completely 110% satisfied.

I can normally get in touch with Cale, but lately he seems to be pretty busy. Family and business keeps him busy I am sure

So I had some issues with my tunes when I first got them. Check engine light for rail pressure, Lope at idle, Dead pedal.
Got a hold of Cale, said there was a bug in some of his tunes.
He sent me revision on all tunes Friday night.
I must say... his revised extreme tune is unreal, my truck with a s-partan seemed to run damn good, but with Cales tunes it seems like its picked up 50 more horse. I know that is unrealistic but the truck runs like beast now.
Shout out to Cale!

Does his tunes shift hard when cold like the h&s canned tunes do? Mines an 12, don't know if it makes a difference. I've been contemplating switching to sct from my xrt pro.

No. His shifts are as close to stock as you can get. I'm running an XRT as well and I recommend these tunes just based on the shifting.

I think we've tuned maybe 10-14 trucks with Cale's tunes so far. My personal 2015 truck has his stock ****** tune on it with about 9,000 miles on the file and it drives just like factory and having the exhaust brake still working is a HUGE plus. I sell to a lot of local shops as well and from everything they've tried on the 6.7/6.4 they prefer to ask for Cales tunes.

I really want the ez lynk but I'm not totally sure I can justify the price. I feel like it's a glorified xrt pro or x4. Now would using the sct platform be better than sct? I thought i read somewhere there are some things the tuners can tweak on one but not the other, not sure of what. I think it's going to be at least 400 for tunes and the mcc unlock. Now I could get a used one and 2 tunes for that if not much more, but can recoup some of the money by selling the xrt pro. And have gauges when I need them from the x4. Has anybody had personal experience using both platforms with tunes from the same person?

Well I switched from the livewire to the ez Lynk and have never looked back. The ez Lynk is so simplified. Supposedly tyrant will be switching to the ez Lynk soon.

If not I have my livewire I can sell you

Is the ez lynk much better or is a pretty comparable platform to the sct livewire? What are pros and cons of each?

I like the ez Lynk much better than the SCT. It's a more modern platform. I like that I can monitor more PIDs than the SCT could. Tuning and downloading tunes are MUCH MUCH easier than the SCT. I like that the ez Lynk monitors EGTs with a stock EGT sensor and not having to buy a $150 sensor to work with the SCT. The ez now has android support as well as apple so it's pretty versatile.

Good to know thanks, does anyone have a rough idea of when tyrant will be having their tunes available for the ez lynk?
I have 50000km on my warranty and when that's up I'll be doing my deeleet, doing all my research now though 😊

Bumping this up..

Anymore input on comparison between GH and Ty rant tuning? My setup will be Midwest diesel comp trans, BD 363sxe kit, stock 11-14 pump for now. This on a leveled 13' on 35s 20x12s. I don't care about smoke (I like it). As for my driving habits let's just say I like to romp on it whenever I can. I'm trying to decide which route to go have never had custom tuning in this truck.

What's my setup good for HP wise? Anyone with similar setup?

I have pretty much the same set up except on factory 275/65/20. Not a noticeable difference between TD or GH. TD has a bit more fuel (smoke) down low and GH runs cleaner overall. I'm willing to bet that the HP/TQ #s between the 2 would be close to the same. I like the GH a little better but it is cool having both because I can switch between the 2 when I get bored. I WOULD NOT TUNE THE TRANSMISSION. If you have a Midwest comp then leave it stock tuned or have Midwest write the tunes for both engine and transmission. After spending 11k on my Suncoast build I am leery of anyone's tuning.

Thanks for chiming in. I'll have to talk to no limit about the transmission tuning. It looks like I will be getting Tyra nt tuning for now. Odd thing is I asked Midwest about tuning and they said all they do is sell parts?

Who's tuning did you run frequently previous to the trans rebuild, and how many miles were on the stock transmission ?

Horrible idea not to tune the transmission.

Since Morgans passing, they have stopped selling tunes as he was the tuner.

Shop that installed it recommended no tuning and Suncoast recommended no tuning. I have a 750+ capable trans with only ~550 going through it. Transmission shop that built it also recommended no tuning, said the transmission is built to not require line pressure changes, etc...

At one time Midwest would not guarantee their transmission without their tuning. RIP to Morgan, God bless his family.

I have always had GH tunes and had transmission shifting issues from day one of installing. Transmission had a little over 100k miles of very clean light duty factory stock power going through it. Trans was still holding up when I had it rebuilt at 214k miles but shifted horribly even through a dozen changes to the trans tuning along the way. Shop that did the bench build said the line pressures were so high that the trans was eating itself alive.

I gave my opinion based on him having a built trans and what professionals told me about mine. I don't trust GH trans tuning and by the time I switched to TD the trans was beyond trash so I can't comment on that but I won't tune the transmission with either of them.

Its your truck, do what you want. Still bad advice for others. I'm basing my opinions on many many discussions with Morgan. He knew his chit.

Morgan did know his stuff for sure but doubt he'd put his rep on the line for anyone's tuning other than his. I planned on having him tune mine but he passed before mine was built and installed. I trust Suncoast knows what is best for their transmission. Opinions are all we have, none of us are experts. I'm not saying no one should tune, a stock trans with 600 horse going though it is going to need tuning to live however a transmission with HD billet converter, billet flex plate, all new clutch packs with a 40% increase in clamping power, etc etc I feel does not need tuning to live. I accidentally loaded a TD trans tune and started getting shift flares in 3-4 and 4-5, barking in heavy throttle from 4-5, and a long pause when shifting into reverse with abrupt engagement once it did shift. Made backing up a trailer a pain. I chalked it up to relearn and adaptive but after 500 miles with no improvement I took it back so the factory program they received with the valve body and solenoids could be reloaded. Since then the last 500 miles have been flawless. I believe that there are so many versions of TCM tuning from Ford for every year and in mid year changes that everyone's situation is different as is their experience with tuning. Some people have great luck and I may just have a finicky TCM that doesn't like tuning from anyone.

Thanks for all the input guys. I did get to drive a 6.7 with the exact same setup I have now and really liked the trans tuning. This was with Ty rants tuning. He did mention to me at first he had to reset trans adaptive learning because it was acting up the same way doo dah described it. After awhile it cleared up on its own tho.

I just drove my truck with new trans installed and it feels exactly the same as with stock. I would have thought that at least I would feel the torque converter lock up. Is this normal? Maybe it has to do with me using the same h&s canned tunes? Turbo kit is not installed yet.

My lock up is heavy, almost like another shift. Don't know what converter is in yours but the Suncoast is a heavy and huge part. There is no doubt when it locks up even with stock trans file. lol

Fair enough. I was just curious if a particular tune(s) played a role in this. My last 12' had trans tuning, and with just under 250k miles, it ran and shifted perfectly.

Ive have been running a Suncoast Full built trans and their converter ,for a little over 60k miles. '15 450. Truck is tuned by PPEI.I run the 200 hp tune that has trans tuning.Never one issue with running the trans with tuning.90% of those miles towing my 53ft horse trailer and 6 horses.

Forum noon here. Just wanted to give a bumb/review on Tyrant Tunes.

My truck is a 2017 6.7 f250 4x4. I received the revised tunes, and to be honest, it's hard to see much improvement over the original tunes since they were so darn accurate. What ever his formula is for adjusting fuel, timing, boost, and TCM; it's on point.

Tip: get the truck to running temp when loading the tune, then drive it at 25%, 50, then 80 making sure all gears shift from 1-6 for a proper TCM relearn. Drive it moderately but not like a granny the first few days.

Shifting is definitely felt at higher throttle, which is a good thing. Clutch packs wear WAY faster than the meaty gears. I threw on a 8 quart tranny pan that comes with a filter extender to keep temps low, and tranny fluid healthy for longevity.

Power is almost unreal for a "off road" truck with just an intake and throttle body "replacement". 0-60 in 5.4 seconds on 35" MT2s with over 600 pounds of bumpers/winch/traction bars/etc.. Gets to 90mph in the 13s. Driving normally feels stock (besides feathering the throttle on extreme mode).

Lots of people complain that it takes "forever" to get a hold of Cale for tunes, but what they don't realize is that he's a one man army as he's the only one that does the tuning (great way to control quality). Emailed him Friday during SEMA weekend; tunes in the cloud by Monday noon. Seamless process when converting to "off road".
