What a difference!!

About a month and a half ago I decided to get a diablew tune. We bought a travel trailer back in March and I pulled it up camping back on Memorial Day. It was the first long trip pulling it with my truck. It pulled it good but seemed to be lacking. At the time I just had the canned 87 tune. The trailer was fully loaded with water when we went up so we were around 5200 lbs trailer weight not counting all of our stuff. I pulled it back from our camping spot today with the lew tune for the first time. WOW. It was a huge difference. It used less fuel and wasn’t up and down shifting like the first time. I could tell a difference when I first got the tune without pulling but man this was amazing. Way different.

Hats off to you Lew. Awesome love it. Anyone thinking about a custom tune from Lew you won’t be disappointed.

I'm interested because I just bought a travel trailer (3900lbs unloaded) and am curious what kind of advantages I will realize...particularly in the gas mileage area....pulled this camper home from purchase about 5.5 hours and my mileage went from around 19.7 to 10.5.

I've also got an email to Lew sent.

You won’t see a big change in mileage. However in my experience I seen changes elsewhere as I stated.

I bought the tuner and the tune. Installed the stock tune, then my tranny pooched, then my G80 went out, then I had a terrible vibration issue. All fixed now, just need to find the email on how to get the tunes file recorded and sent off.

Here...you don't have to look! Right from Lew!

You receive the tool... the first thing you would need to
do is update it to all of the latest updates... once all the
updates are done and complete, then you are ready to connect
it to your vehicle and select one of the preset tunes --
either the "87 Octane Tune" if you use 87/89
octane gas most of the time, OR the "Diablo
Tune" if you're going to use 91/93 octane gas
all the time....
Then it should ask you to select a TCM tune for the tranny, so
select the "Firm Shift" tune...
then select Install/Apply Tune and
install the tunes... the tool will first save the
copies of your original backup stock tune files in itself,
and then it will continue and install the performance tunes
you selected.
once the
install is done, then you're good to go with the preset
tune.
Then
you'd need to drive a few days or so until you get at
least about 150 miles put on the preset tune so that
everything gets relearned by the ECM and settles in, and
then you'd be ready to record the steady driving data
log. And I have info/instructions for how to do
everything, so no worries there....
Once you have the data log done,
then, you'd connect the tool back up to your computer...
get copies of the original backup and last tune written
files, and the data log, copied from the programmer to your
PC, then you email me all of the files (the data log
file and all tune files), with your vehicle info - year,
model, engine, any mods done to it, etc...
I create you a custom tune file
and then email it back to you...
you import the custom tune file
into the tool... then connect the tool to your vehicle and
select the custom tune to install, then install the
tune...
you drive
however you normally do for a couple/few days until
you've put on at least about 150+ miles so that the fuel
trims and such have been relearned by the ECM and have
settled in, then we move on to the WOT fun!
haha...
I have you
do a WOT data log for me, I go through it, make any needed
adjustments to WOT fueling/timing, send you an updated tune,
you install it, get me a new WOT data log to check, etc...
once everything all looks good, you're good to
go.
