Default Some Superchips help please...

So I loaded up the 93 tune with no problem and I absolutely love it but I didnt want to dive into the advanced tuning until I was sure about a couple things. One, is that where I will be able to turn MDS off. I thought it would automatically do it but it still comes on. Not a big deal but I would still like to know. And second, the truck is shifting great but I noticed its still a bit slow off the line. I've seen where people adjust the idle, would that help? Thanks guys.

if you go to advance you can turn off the mds and you can choose your shift points i have heard some people just max them all out and seems to do fine and with the idle i left mine alone. and in the advance tuning you dont have to mess with everything you can just pick and choose what you want to change i kinda just play with it and see what it does its easy to go back to default settings and start all over it just seems to take forever to load is the only thing i dont like about it

Thanks so much Redram. Im going to give it a try today. Do you know why some people would change the idle speed?

to maintain battery charge for extra load demand like high output aftermarket sound system.
