It spun pretty hard I'm guessing when it shifted from 1st to second
Is that what the spikes in the yellow graph are? I think it ticked the rev limiter on the 2-3 shift, or spun a little.

Is it worth doing a cold air intake and tune on a 2500hd with the 6.0? My dad was asking me what kind of tq he could pick up “for towing”

After using the Cobb tuner on my Focus ST and doing remote toooons, it's not hard but rather time consuming. If you have a stretch of road, its doable. Data log and send the file off. Receive load repeat.

I did that 3 times on my way to St Louis for an ST meet/dyno day.


Vdyno (Virtual Dyno) was another program/tool we used.

High of 13* and dry on Sunday, Yaj Yak Yaj Yak is goin' down. Been way too damp this week to make any runs
I tested my R8 in 23*F and car didn't like it , it was slower then when I tested it in 34*F . I guess some cars don't like it too cold

My 5.0 2013 F150 Super Crew with 6.5' bed [ probably the heaviest F150 ] . Run it now on 87 gas , it was raining but it didn't spin at all in 4WD .
