I've been messing around with my Jr just doing some testing, as we all seem to do when we got one of these. I first tried sw3, tq1, tm3 and POD set at 85. My truck ran awesome and seemed to be getting great mileage as well. It literally didn't smoke at all (running lean perhaps?) I then switched to sw3, tq1, tm4 and POD on 85 still. My truck seems to pull harder and spool faster on the highway but it will smoke out the car behind me. From what I understand, the lower the smoke, the better the tune is? I'm more or less concerned with the EGT factors. I have searched for these similar settings and other opinions in other posts but I'm not quite seeing what I wanna know. Any input would be great.

Thanks!

From what I can see, my truck likes both settings so far. I think I was getting the best mileage on sw3, tq1, tm3 and POD at 85. With those settings minus the tm set on 4, it just smokes when I step in it. I'm gonna run a tank with my current settings (sw3, tq1, tm4) and see how it goes. I don't hot rod my truck around so I'm not too concerned with tearing up my tranny. I have gauges on order and that will put my mind at peace most of all.

As for what I want out of the Smarty Jr? So far it has been exactly what I expected. Better drivability, better mileage and some awesome power. I'm not trying to Smoke people out or do crazy burnouts, I just want my truck to run better than it did stock.. and it certainly does now.

Thanks for the input so far, guys.

I made a 220 mile trip last Sunday with the Jr set on sw3, tm4 and tq1. My mileage was pretty lousy surprisingly. I'm gonna try sw3, tm3 and tq1 on this next tank. It also was verrry wind that day, but still not good. It does make the best power with tm on 4.

Cruise was set on 70mph, and freshly reset my overhead mileage display and it was on 22.8-23.2 which isn't that great for my truck. It was hand calculated at 20.74 mpg. I have seen better than that though when it was stock.. I haven't had the best weather lately either (lots of wind and cooler temps outside) We'll see how it does on sw3, tm3 and tq1.
