So I felt dumb tonight :help2: , and thought let's see what this new tune drives like. Suprisingly, does not behave to badly. I drove it for about 20 miles, surges when in tow haul at low speeds a little bit. Drives alot better than the 180 tune did before I sent it in for an update. CAUTION: This new tune smokes like a frieght train! Got rid of a tailgater in a Volvo that insisted on riding my back end through a school zone. :eek: Classic first time soot victim reaction, wipers on and waving her hand in front of her face like she passed gas or something. :lol:
Anyhow, pulled real strong, only made 22 lbs of boost, EGT's where up in the 1400 ballpark real fast, needs some boost help (controller or boost stick), does have some timing rattle, and then I limped the trans on a 4 to 5 upshift at W.o.T. :muahaha:

Look forward to trying this on 05_LLY 's truck and trying it out since he has a South Bend clutch in his and see how it runs without a slipping and limping drivetrain.

Was released 2 weeks ago according to PPE. I sent my Hot 180 in for a +2upgrade and they upgraded it to the E.T. They said that they figured they might as well save me the shipping of sending it back again.

PPE "Economy" through "Hot +2" programmed to defuel between shifts to help save the tranny, if I remember correctly. The "ET ELiminator" version may not, based on above comment.
