me78569 The quadzilla is more geared to DIY type of tuning. has built and hosted a large number of starter tunes though

the type of tuning you are talking about is to $$$ to be worth while to market in my mind. for peak power you max timing and max duration on a vp truck.

01maroon Since the quadzilla has custom tunes, are there any shops that are experts on creating custom tunes? For example with EFI live you can tell the tuner what mods you have and they can send you tunes, or you can get dyno time with an expert tuner to fine tune the best for your specific truck, or even street tune your truck and drive around while tuner in passenger seat. Does any of this "Custom" Tuning exist on the Quadzilla platform?

angrymoose802 I've had the edge with juice attitude on my old auto, and am now running the quad adr. I love the ability to tune, tweak tunes, and adjust tunes when other goodies are added. But damn do I wish I didnt have to bluetooth to my phone every time I wanted to see my gauges.
I pulled for the second time the other night, had connection issues, and never got my tune loaded. I almost launched my 800 cellphone right through the windshield and drug the sled right over it.
That being said I wish I had the ability to set and create tunes like the quad offers... but also have the monitor, I think it's the cts monitor I like the most

Monstermaker The Quadzilla gives you the option of full custom tuning if you want to, but also has plug & play “canned” settings like the other tuners do.

I like that it can be controlled with a cell phone app, and you don’t have to mount any junk on your dash.

I agree that it is a great piece of technology for a tuner. For features and adjustability it can't be beat. But it is by far the most complicated and most problematic for an end user. Search 'Quad problems' and you could read for an entire day. It will take up a lot of your time and most of your skills and help from others to get it to run it at its best.

My recommendation is not to get the Quad if your IQ is below 115 or it won't be as pleasant an experience as advertised. Below 115 IQ I'd recommend more of a plug and play for ease of use.

Syco67 I've run the Edge EZ, Edge Comp and currently run an Edge Juice CTS tuner. They are all good tuners depending on your budget and power goals. I used a Smarty S03 for a bit as well. If you have the time and skill, the Quadzilla Adrenaline will net you the best results. It allows you to tweak almost every aspect of the VP44 pump. I ran one for awhile but I was having a bunch of connection issues and have very little patience for mechanical things that don't work as they should. I had lots of help in trying to figure it out but in the end I gave up and went back to an Edge. That being said, I certainly don't try to talk people out of trying it. If my current Edge ever craps out, I may try it again someday.

chadmac I've had a Smarty programmer (60hp) and a TST Comp (180 hp wiretap) together for at least a decade and both have been problem free and run very strong together.

All depends on how much money you want to spend, how much power you're looking for and what features you desire. Quadzilla starts at $600, Smarty is $650, TST is $650, don't remember what the Edge products cost. There are others out there too.

bigfish95971 Do not if they are still available but I have had a BD Plug -n-Power(aka Van Aaken) unit. Has worked great for17 years

KATOOM Plenty of choices... It will come down to how much much power you're looking to gain and how much money you want to spend. Edge products have been around forever. I have the Edge EZ which is a mere 65 hp / 180 tq gain at the wheels. And some people would consider that as a waste of time... The extreme level of tune-ability and maximum power is going to be the Quad Adrenaline.

Dont overlook the advantages of different injectors either.
