What tune did you get. BTW, any tune will be great and Lyndon is a pleasure to deal with.

Keep us posted!

Good luck with it and let us know how you like it.. What level did you get? Not real familiar with Westers.. IIRC they have some strong ratings from what people have been saying...

The rating Lyndon reports are also very conservative. My 100-110 tune pulls stronger than edge on 5 and the 90hp tune may have as well.

Well, he came to my work and put it on. I don't get off duty until tomorrow morning. I'll have to wait until then to drive it. I got the 30hp mileage tune, adjustment for tire size, little firmer shift, and speed limiter removed.

I noticed the trailer felt a little lighter today, but haven't had her out on the highway yet. Gonna do a 1700 mile trip next week. That should give the mileage a good test.

Let us know how you make out. I'm running the Westers programming but haven't had a chance to really see what the mileage is. The truck usually ends up idling for a while before I leave work so that doesn't help. The one time that I did figure all highway mileage without a trailer it was in the mid 20s. I need to do another highway trip to confirm this. I'll be taking a run from MA to MI and back in a few weeks. That will be a good mileage test. I'll jump in the bed and start dancing if mileage is in the mid 20s.

Well I ran to Colorado and back last month. From Fort Worth, TX to Durango,Co I got 16.95mpg. Onthe way back I got 19.2mpg. I ran 75mph.
The thing I have noticed most after I got home was the decrease in town and when pulling. Stop n Go driving gets somewhere around 12 and with a loaded down landscape trailer(zero mower's, four foot sides,tools and tandem axle) I getting in the 8-9 range.

My city mileage is a few less than before, so it is kind of a wash at the moment.

On another note I can get 21-22 going 60 on cruise, but it feels like I'm crawling.

I'm thinking of going to 265/75/r16. Maybe that will help.

I would suspect that the mileage decrease around town is due to the fact that you have more power and power consumes fuel, plus I am sure your right foot has something to do with it as well.

I will add however that while cruising the rpm band is very limited and the tune can be tailored to run well in that narrow range. I wish you luck with it.
