Hello, I guess Ill be the first to start posting threads in this forum. I have a 2005 CRD that already has a Suncoast TC and a Transco shift kit. My truck is also Inmotion stage two tuned. I like the idea of your tune because of the increaded fuel economy people are reporting. Im not sure I want to lose any power. Also because I ALWAYS cruise at 60mph (1750 RPM) I want a good solid lock up and no variance at those rpms. I drive there for the mileage. Ive gotten as high as 38mpg doing that.

Ive heard you guys have a European TC tune that has more power. Is that the case and if so would you consider doing that for me?

Thank you.

We are currently working on a "hot tune" for owners of after-market torque converters. This should be available within a month. The hot tune only changes the WOT performance and will still have the same fuel economy benefits as the standard tune in normal driving conditions. The hot tune will have slightly more smoke under heavy accelerations.

Do you normally drive for fuel economy or for the performance pleasure? Have you experienced "shudder" with the Inmotion tune and Suncoast TC? We are not sure if Suncoast increased the damper springrates as this is the main issue with the stock converter.

hello, I normally drive for MPG. Although I love the performance when needed. I like that my truck with torque over every mountain pass at 1750 RPM at 58 mph and NOT shift out of 5th!!!

Ive not noticed any shudder anytime anywhere.
