    Patiently waiting for 04A61 GL+Perf. Okay, anxiously is probably a better descriptor.

    But I’d rather wait for Mat to polish it all up and then start from there if necessary.

    I'm 99% sure I know what I did, and pretty sure I misread some discussions on here to improve some things. If my suspected changes were not the cause, then I somehow managed to change something without realizing it.

    Regardless, I should have caught it, as the truck had a rough idle that I could hear from within my house.

    Oddly enough, I drove with the tune a few times before it was thrown. Under normal circumstances, touching the brake and accelerator pedal at the same time will flag this code. If I had done this unknowingly, then turning the truck off and back on should have resolved the issue but it did not.

    On the bright side, the MPG's in the truck are better than stock. 300 mile trip on one tank going 80 on the freeway wasn't bad at all. Truck rarely dropped into 4th gear going uphill.

    I'm not sure either :)
    Who knows what will be possible with previously unknown (to us) throttle tables. We've all had a bitch of a time trying to make things linear, predictable, and smooth.

    This may have been covered I can’t find it. What is the difference in these two maps? Lambda .821 and .999

    ok. so when adjusting one adjust the second also? they looked the same when starting out.

    Edit# also it is changing how the truck sounds with catless dump tubes. trying to get away from the cracking sound in the exhaust. Running stock exhaust and stock intake other then dump tubes

    So I think I understand now. So when afr is at .999 it reads off that map and when it’s at .821 it reads off that map correct? So it depends on how lean or rich your fuel is?

    With these tunes:
    Throttle limits, Primary shifts, and ETC shifts have been DIALED IN. (IMO, nearly perfect.)

    These tunes have the most aggressive tip in that I found able to be daily driven. On the +PWR file, ETC still has an uber aggressive tip in. ETC upshifts 1, 2, and 3 rev out more than the primary maps, and 4th gear has been raised to shift into 5th at approximately 60. Truck won't bother shifting into 6th until after 70.

    On the +GL file, the super sensitive but still manageable tip in is the same for both Drive, and Gear Lock modes to ensure the throttle doesn't feel any different between the two maps.

    @Hank_Mille I pulled my camper (5,800 #s) with the +PWR tune and ETC on. The snappy tip in was very manageable with the extra weight behind me.

    Files are both for Regular Octane, Stock Gears, and 33" tires. 04B04 ECU ID.

    Premium files to come...

    Magic! :infantry:BAM! Premium files appear! :welder::muscleflexing::pccoffee:

    (Full Disclosure- We collaborated, I got his files yesterday)

    If anyone needs tire size or gears changed, let me know.
    If anyone needs AGM settings added, let @TWTaco know.

    Not sure what we can do to make things any better until we learn how to make some horsepower... But as always please offer up your opinions.

    They're pretty solid right now. Only thing I wish was better is the MPGs...but performance and better MPGs don't go hand in hand, unfortunately. I get about 15-16 on the freeway.

    Are you using Cruise Control? That makes it worse.
    I drove 300 miles this weekend to Natchez and back. On cruise control there- 16.6mpg. Cruise control off on the way back- 17.8mpg.
    But—Mat just posted that we will be getting cruise control maps in Vftuner SOON, so we should be able to fix it.

    SCS 17x8.5 -10 offset. OV tune
    I copied a lot of the work done on these tunes but I left out the transmission shift changes and TC lockup changes. Mainly, I didn't want to dive into logging transmission temps yet and I'm nervous about the transmission. I also only made the initial changes to acceleration throttle request to airload. I'm not sure how much the majority of these modifications actually made huge changes to the 2.0 base tune, but the ACIS tweak is way better. Passing on the highway gives you a downshift into power instead of right below the power. The power delivery isn't as crazy either. I plan on trying to lower it another 100-200rpm just for giggles even though Matt has seen a sweet spot above 3400. The drivability is just so much better that I want to see what I can get away with. Nothing is new here but I figured I would give some feedback if anyone was on the fence.
    Here is the list of what I copied:
    ACIS Activation RPM High Engine Speed – 3400
    Control & Expected Airflow per OVTune
    Accelerator – Acceleration Throttle Request to Airload
    - All but last 2 columns *125
    - Smoothed 450 to 650 only (Ctrl+I)
    Throttle Management – Throttle Limit Normal Gear
    - Gears 1-6 (except last 3 values) *125
    - Same for S gears 1-6
    1st Gear Throttle Limit – all to 100
    1st Gear Throttle Limit 4 High – all to 100
    Torque Calculated Base to Full Throttle – all to 5000 from 4000
