Default Mag muffler& sc upgrade

Hey guys yesterday I had a 18" mag muffler installed and got a sc tuner what a great day! I did not want loud but it could have been a little louder sounds good I'm happy. Then I added the tuner on the 91 setting I thought there would be more power,The guy I bought the tuner from had the extra tranny setting have not tried it yet.I'm going to try to turn off the mds when it kicks in sounds terrible.And I have a Volant cai on order I hope the cai will help.What do you guys think?

The advanced transmission tuning is amazing, you'll love it once you get some time to dial it in. It does suck that it takes a looooong time to mess with it, but it's worth it.

What I did is download a "baseline" that someone else made from that mcfailnet site (google it) and then just messed with it every few days, adjusting it a little at a time. Drive for a little, adjust again, etc. Eventually you'll figure out exactly how you want it to shift. It just takes a long time because every time you adjust it you have to essentially retune the truck, which takes about 15 minutes.

This should give you a pretty good idea of what it looks like. Just plug in the tuner and follow instructions.

The column on the left is throttle percent and the column on the right is shift rpm.



You can also set overdrive off shift schedules and low shift schedules(for use when in 4x4).

Here's the site for downloading a starter schedule:

I believe when you go back to stock tune it puts the trans back to stock. But it saves the trans tune so when you go back to the performance tunes you can still select your custom trans tune.
