Cool Who runs max effort everyday?

So I’ve been running level 3 from CTT. Just today I bumped it up to level 5. The power is definitely real.

So out of curiosity who here runs max effort everyday and how long have you ran it this way? What are your driving patterns on max effort?

I’m always nervous throwing more power. I don’t do any WOT runs-never will. I don’t do boosted launches. I don’t do hard downshifts. If anything I’ll do some aggressive accelerating every now and then where I either roll into the throttle at 40-50%. Sometimes I’ll do an aggressive take off from a red light. Again it’s not flooring it, it’s just a heavy roll into throttle at about 40-50%. That’s the absolute most I demand out of my transmission from time to time.

467.7 turbo
RevMax valve body (more clamping force for my clutches running 225psi)
4.10 gears on 33’s (going from 3.42’s I’ve reduced the load on my transmission by 20%)

So why should I be worried you ask? Well that’s a good question. I’m not fearful, just trying to be cautious is all.

How smokey is it on level 4? Do you have upgraded injectors? Do you like the 4:10s with 33s or wish you went with 3:73s?
Thx

My 12 isn't tuned but I rant my 06 on kill all the time, other than heavy-ish towing 12k plus.The I'd turn it down to 3. I drive like a mature adult should and got my best mileage with it set on kill.

Drove my '10 on 125ish all the time for 3 or 4 years. 3 with a 465. Well not all the time, when I was towing I'd drop it to 75ish. Ran great, I did not romp on it until 4th gear but would make hard 75% throttle pulls regularly even when towing. Never did wot as it felt like the tires wouldn't take it. My '16 struggles to hold the 50hp tow tune in 5th. All this info is moot for you as both my trucks have a third peddle.

Iím always on the max effort tune when Iím running empty. I get my best mileage that way. I donít run it hard. Usually just set the cruise on the expressway. When I tow itís set on a 30hp tune.

Max effort as well for me. I drive it kinda hard too. It’s really fun once I hit 3rd gear. She smokes pretty good at WOT. Or maybe that’s my tires.....

Towing 4k lbs I’ll keep it in max effort. Drop it down to the tow tune when the camper is behind me. I know I can’t keep my foot under control...

Can’t say enough about the valair clutch. It holds so strong. I did some 4wd WOT pulls the other day and wow...

I'm unsure if I have anything other than "balls to the wall".

I don't see the need of selecting lower tunes. If it's built correctly for what you're doing, it should hold. If you don't have it built for what you want to do and do it anyway, be prepared to pay the man....or learn self control. I've paid the man many times.

I’m starting to come around to the same mindset. Why run anything lower than max aside from when you’re towing (with a 68-seen some horror stories).

My truck is built to handle all this power, when driven responsibly. My truck is not fully capable of handling all this power, when driven out of control several times a week.

I’ll never see over 40lb of boost so no need for studs. I don’t drive like a maniac, so no need for built trans. If anything, I’ve done just enough to reinforce current components, decrease the load on other components, and have given it bigger lungs (sort of but not really).

My truck is the in between fun truck. No where near what she was stock. Yet not quite where she can be fully built. Just enough to have fun, accelerate fast, and stretch her legs every so often.

Kind of like 2nd string football. I’m not on the starting line up but I’m not Joe Schmo sitting at home eating potato chips on the sofa watching the game.

So far I’m enjoying max effort. It feels like my trans performs better with max effort and my valve body.

A buddy of mine ran a tuned 2013 F350. Full deletes with a GT37. Otherwise stock injectors and CP4. He ran his max setting all day, every day. Sold the truck at 400,000km and the new owner is at 450,000km. He dyno'd just over 500hp and about the 1200lb/ft mark.

I think the trick is to use caution when towing heavy or avoid boosted launches without wheel spin to melt the trans.
