    Running the 91 Tune with 93 gas is the "sweet spot" in all of the combinations. This combo has given me the best throttle response to eliminate most of the screwy downshifts. It's still there mind you...but much better!

    Preignition is a very bad thing and will result in engine damage if allowed to continue. Try running a higher octane fuel or change your tune.

    Do you mean the inconsistency that is currently present in the throttle is dangerous?

    until we can properly address how the throttle is modified per gear / speed / nuetral.. there is not much that can be done. These tables, logic and scenario exists in the stock calibration.

    We are already working on that, it was posted in here a while back. Manipulating code takes time. Regardless of having a test truck or not.

    working on it!
    I am thinking about getting this tune but its painful to read through all of the pages of off topic posts. Can anyone point me to a video or post that sums up the user experience well? And yes, I have already read the lastest original post but I am looking for quantitative data and not just word of mouth. Thanks.

    Stupid question but replacing my battery wouldnt default my ECU back to a factory tune would it?

    No,the OVTune overwrites the factory tune,at best you cleared learned values and may notice some odd behavior until it "relearns" trims.

    It finally warmed up enough to dry out the roads a bit and I was able to go play with the Torque app for the first time. For reference truck has 265/75/16 E tires,sliders bumpers/winch/gear 5200# est.

    DISCLAIMER Testing was done on a lonely county road right where pavement turns to gravel,zero traffic and seat belt was worn ;)
    It's no speed demon but it pulls hard all the way to 7k....:burnrubber:

    Keep in mind that not all reviews will be up to date and reflect the current iteration of the tune (1.05B). For example, I posted when on 1.03 and updated it when on 1.04A I think (?) and that was late spring/early summer I think. I never updated my post after that. I doubt others did either

    In addition, it's a little unreasonable to ask for just quantitative data over word of mouth, since that means you can basically only go off of what Mat says and posts with regards to hard numbers from Dyno runs, and no one/nothing else. Which means you should actually ignore the review thread. So if purely quantitative data is all you're after, you'll be severely limiting yourself since even people's reports of fuel economy and whatever else shouldn't be included in your compilation of data, due to differences in driving styles, mods, and just the plain finnicky behavior each individual truck clearly displays.

    TL;DR is that you're doing yourself a disservice by searching for an extremely small pool of information to base your decision off of: to buy or not to buy.

    I just got OVtune a few weeks ago and had been driving on the 87 FOB for the first two and thought it was a nice upgrade from stock, but the throttle mapping was too twitchy, mainly when on trailing throttle down hills -- just breathe on the gas pedal and you're accelerating when I meant to just maintain a constant speed. The last week or so I've been on the 91 FOB tune and it seems much less twitchy.

    I thought it was twitchy at first. Now that I’ve got a few hundred miles on it, it doesn’t bother me. Not sure if it settled down a little or I just got used to it.
