    Do you guys use macs for this or PC? And for mac guys, if it’s only PC they are SOL and have to invest in a new computer?

    Does anyone have experience with this tune while off roading? Using 4-hi/lo and diff lock?

    Parallels or bootcamp has been the solution reported to work.

    I have a sport so no diff lock but use 4lo quite a bit while plowing, if that counts. No issues.

    I went back to 1.03b 87. Throttle felt better on it vs 1.03c 87. I would use the 1.03b 91 tune if a majority of my drive wasn't stop and go. Damn traffic.

    I think i'm going to follow you. I drove the truck today for more than a few miles the first time since flashing 1.03C. The throttle is definitely responsive, borderline twitchy, but very predictable. If I spent more time with it I could probably get smoother, but I would also likely eat through tires. :burnrubber:


    I'm going to go back to 1.03B and evaluate. I drove it for barely 20 miles so I need to re-visit and see if I like it better.

    Dude, I thought that one guy was going to start crying. He was bitching about how even with the tune, he did not like the truck, so I simply said good luck finding something that fits your needs, and you would have thought I killed his mother lol.

    I think I might try 87 tune on 1.03b as well. Just curios to see/feel the deference. I am currently on 1.03c 91 tune.

    Looks like boot camp cost $100. Would buying a cheap refurbished laptop be an easier way for a non tech user? And if anyone knows of a cheap laptop that works for sure, post up the link please!

    I recommended this one to another person in need of a laptop a couple days ago. I have no affiliation with the seller and I have not personally bought anything from them. They do have good ratings, and clam to be "Microsoft approved". I use a T530 to flash and also have a T430. Good laptops, tough as nails.

    Has anyone lined up a my truck for Mat to fine tune the new 1.03c tune on? The surging at 2500 is reduced for me but still annoying.

    No, not that I am aware, there has not been a MT truck for Matt to use as of yet.
