Re: Tuner help
I don't know about the other tuners, but The new BDGT I just installed a couple of weeks ago seem's to be pretty good. Today I put it to the real test (for me anyway) I drove up to our cabin which is at 4000 ft. It's a 75 mile drive one way. It begins at sea level. Now I have driven this truck up this 10% grade many many times in this Titan. Let me tell you, the power or torque going up was by far very noticable. My son even commented on the fact that the truck didn't have to down shift as much, and that he could feel a big differance. I was driving the beast and I am totally impressed.
My T has all the gauges but watching the monitor on the BDGT is very precise. I always watch the H20 and trans temps when loaded (the truck that is) LOL.
I didn't save any gas I don't think but I averaged 15 mph going up and down steep roads. My truck is stock so far except the BDGT. I do plan on the Airraid MXP, and probably a cat back system. I don't plan on header's or cams. Just a little extra power from these easy bolt on's.
I made a big mistake once building my dream 4x4, and it ended up being more of a race truck, and I didn't like being under the hood all the time adjusting the carb,header bolts,vac, and what not. As a retired Diesel/auto tech for 35 years I just like to keep it simple anymore. The T with these mild mods will do the trick.
