G'bye Hyperpac... this is a whole new animal and I'm in love. I know I'll have to upgrade the tranny and probably the radar detector but WHO CARES!!!

If you hate acceleration, black smoke and spinning tires then stay away from this deal... it just won't be for you.

Mcrat Tune

I'm happy with my Mcrat tune. He does seem to have a pretty good idea of what's going on with the DMax.

And you guys said McRats Tune wouldnt play fair with the stock Tranny. It has been since the begining of the year and its been holding up fine. (Knock on Wood).:D or does this just mean that I have developed the driving habits of my father.:eek:

What do your EGT's look like with normal driving?

I'd like to know the temps under the following conditions:

1) Steady level cruising at 70 mph
2) Steady cruising at 70 going up a hill (empty)
3) Heavy throttle passing from 50-80 mph
4) 0-90 acceleration (where do the EGT's peak?)

Thanks folk! :ro)

I build tuning for the way I like to drive our trucks. The cool thing about EFILive, is that it gives you the option to customize the tuning to your driving style.

i have run the mcrat tune for a while w/ stock trans but i have normally only beat on it till 3rd or 4th gear then i let off to avoid the 5th gear shift and so far i have only limped my tranny twice and both those were 5th gear shifts, i wouldnt recommend it fir too long b/c i can already tell 4th and 5th gear are on the verge of quiting on me.
pat makes some unbelievable tunes and i would reccoment him too anyone for his great service
