Looking forward to more comments on these tunes. Are you running stock studs or upgraded? Are you running H&S tranny tune, tow/haul switched on or letting trans shift normal? What all is needed to load Draconian tunes with XRT Pro?<br />

</div>I think your tunes will be in the order they are in the library. Starting with stock setting on your h&s. So for me my order would be mileage, tow, tow heavy and street. On the h&s the order would be stock, tow, street, performance. So stock=mileage, tow=tow, street=tow heavy and performance would be street. Pretty sure thats how Dave sets them up.

Congrats on the tunes. I have been running Draconian tunes for the past few weeks and they are awesome. Street is a great one, Street performance is even more amazing.

Does each tune change the timing? Or is it all the same timing across the board? Emailed Dave and waiting for response to get some tunes. Can't wait. <br />

You guys really do hurt my pocket book. I'm waiting for an e-mail so I can pay Dave for some tunes. I really can't wait. Ever since I got this pickup I have wanted that 12v injector rattle. I can't wait.

Does he modify them specific to our individual truck or is it like the NC tune where it is all plug and play from the tune library? The reason I ask is because I have the 4.10s and not 3.73 or 3.42 that some people run. My thinking was that get the lower gears and now that I run 35s should be like 265s on 3.73s. I'm very interested and waiting for the money tree to grow to get my tunes from Dave. I'd like the street performance tune but not sure that a stock automatic transmission can hold it...

</div>Each truck gets its own love. These are no way like ANYONE ELSE'S box tunes. That's why it's takes a few days to get the tunes, we touch all of them. We call them box but they are a base for us to build yours on. We've also said time after tune we will not send anything out that will hurt your truck. <br />

What does this stuff cost? I guess I would be looking for the MCC and two or three tunes. I'd you need to pm me that is fine. Thanks<br />

guys im not gonna sit here and tell how much different my truck is or how much better my mpg is with Daves tuning (just loaded today and that would take to long) but I will say my truck is a totally different animal. Im extremely happy with my purchase and cant wait to drive it again. If anyone is on the fence about getting some custom tunes...Just do it..These guys know what their doing.

I had to switch back to the H&S box tunes until I get a DD clutch because my stock one slips way to much with the Draconian tunes. Crazy how much power can be found with the proper tuning.

Finally got a day off today. Got the H&S update for my XRT(31) installed. Have had my tunes from Dave(Draconian) since last weekend. DYING to install them. Today was the day.<img src="images/smilies/smilies-2008/party018.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Party018" class="inlineimg" /> First off the instructions sent with my tunes made it very easy to do. Can't tell you how refreshing that is. Good job guys. All was installed and loaded with no drama. Tunes I ordered were, Mileage, Tow, Tow heavy, Street and the Big Tire modifier. Only thing I was not sure was what order and how the tunes matched with H&S names. I caught a thread in the Draconian forum that helped with that (thanks BrandonW6.7). So on with my tunes. First up was Heavy tow as it turns out(thought I was on street). I was so impressed with how the truck ran. So much smoother. Really words do not do it justice. Night and day. Quick backround here. In the last three years I have been running Minimax with box tuning. Last year or so on tow/timing 2. I have also spent a short time with the RaceMe and for the last couple weeks have been on XRT with Norcaler Big Tire Tune. I have had good service from all of the above. I have to say that nothing comes close to how my truck runs with Dave's tunes. I have only had one day on my tunes and have now tried them all for a short period of time. They all impressed me so much I just drove all day. Stopping along the way to change tunes. I am on Street tune right now. What a great all around tune. So much fun. My favorite so far. Unfortunately I will be working a 48 hour shift starting tomorrow and won't be able to drive again till Monday but stay tuned. I plan on reporting back as I get more time on my tunes. In closing I want to give a BIG shout out to Dave and Frank (aka Raptorhauler) for there patience with my constant questions and sometimes impatience. Especially with how busy you have been. You guys can take pride in your excellent customer service. You guys are great. Really, thank you.<img src="http://www.cumminsforum.com/forum/images/smilies/Thumbup19[1].gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumbs Up" class="inlineimg" /> Stay TUNED folks.

Thanks Raptor! Dave got me set up. I understand what it's like to have a hobby that won't completely pay the bills and have guys chomping at the bit for things. Even as busy as you guys are you've always been there to patiently answer my questions. I really appreciate that.

Well I see this thread got all messed up with the last bug that hit the sight. Update. Been driving the street tune with BTT for several days now and I am really liking it. Very responsive. Seems to be just as discribed. I have been doing alot of driving even though diesel has went up so much. Just can't get enuff. Wide open blasts from about 40 mph will get me to about 36 psi boost and a little over 1200 egt's. Mileage seems to be up as well even with me in the throttle so much. Oh and have I said how smooth it is? Yes? I will say it again. Smooth, smooth, smooth. Heavy Tow Tune test won't be until quail season about a month from now.
