Well i got the TNT tune and i didnt feel the big power. is this 230 hp or not.
my truck doesnt smoke any more than when i had my smarty on stock injectors stock timing and mild torque. Does this race program fuel easy on the bottom end

with the tnt i have my pressure on 3, stock timing, mph to 250 and i have it on #9. i have to turn my tst on to 3/2 to get any thing to feel different. SHould i beable to stack my tst with this race program

So i really dont know i was tring all kinds of different tunes on the smarty and it feels like its pulling slow. my stock cp3 and stock injectors are not running out of fuel

should i remove the TNT tune and try the revo and see if that helps me out
sorry for the the long post

You really shouldn't need to stack. Im following Bob's line of questioning.... Whats the lift pump and rail pressure looking like at WOT? Are fuel filters maintained? We just had a customer move from a Bullydog Scary/MP-8 stack to the 3500 RPM TNT and he says it dynoed 31HP higher, but seat of the pants feels more like 50+ HP in his but dyno! If you feel like your going down in power as you go to a TNT R tune, something is not jiveing.

Sounds like the stock fuel delivery system can't keep up with the demand from the TNT. Also noticed it with my truck, even at level 3. Have to remember that level 1 on the TNT starts at 100hp.

One other question on the TNT, is it a real smooth power that you may not notice how much power is there or should you feel it slap you in the face? I still have "THE ORIGIONAL" tune that was first released when the smarty cr came out and it smacks you in the face. I doubt there is really anyone out there that still has the tune I have, so it may be hard for anyone to understand except maybe Bob. What do you think Bob?

There is the Revolution 170HP
There is the TNT 3500 RPM 230HP
There is the TNT/R 4000 RPM 230HP

Bob Wagner, myself, or any other of the great venders here can hook you up with a new one. Bob Wagner can hook you up with the TNT/R 4000 RPM tune if you call him. And Mad's Electronics website has the first 2 tunes for free download/upgrade for all of you.

Upgraded CP3's are a must- I've got a Stage 2 II and my RP drops down to around 17-18Kpsi on level 7.

Sweet, the TNT was not on the site when I downloaded Revo, is the only difference in the TNT and TNT-R the extra 500rpm

my understanding is the revo only goes to 170hp. . .where as the TNT will give you the 3500rpm as well as 230hp starting at 100hp.

I know about the 3500rpm. . .did that this morning by accident merging into traffic with my 315's smoking till I let out of the throttle at 90mph:peelout

#6 and my TST on 2/1 is just nutz:$::beer

I noticed when using the smarty tnt tune alone I had the RP set on 3 and was pulling a 6k trailer through the hill country here in TX and while cruising on a flat surface i would see Rp at 19-20k. Climbing a hill (just a little more throttle) the RP would go down to 16-17k. Without the trailer I would run it hard and not see much over 23k. Now once I stacked the Edge EZ and have the REVO tune set at default for Rp I saw over 26k and from the gauge it holds that pressure. With the smarty alone it seems as I would mash the gas the RP would drop in realtion to throttle position. This is just average driving around town. Now with the EZ stacked the RP will climb in relation to the go pedal being pressed. And so far the power is much smoother than using the smarty alone. Any thoughts?

That is why I like the Pressure Box. :thumbsup
BBRam, how do you like the MP8 compared to the EZ? Why the switch?
