    Thanks
    I run the ECM tune and trans tune, and they're great. Even better coupled together. I pull around 8k toy hauler regularly and the two tunes work very well together. The ECM with the turbo brake and the trans tune with it's intuitive downshifts in T/H mode to control descents. I wouldn't run it any other way.

    When not towing, the trans tune really wakes up the truck. It's quick off the line in gears 1-3. The stock trans tune is really lazy. Money well spent.

    Didn't sound like you needed to change it.
