No, never got the wildman tunes, been too busy tobug Bill about them. I also tried Beans tunes but he never fixed some minor issues for me. I am currently back to stock injectors and standard php tunes.
Not sure if my sig is up to date either. Been to busy at work, no time for anything else.

I decided to go with a Hydra from Tony Wildman, and you can download PHP tunes from their library with that chip. I'll post my results. My F5 died and they would not warranty it. I add the same top end problem, it would launch like a top fueler, but went flat. I modded my IDM and it seems to have helped the top end a lot. My chip is on order, so when I get it I'll post up what my impression is. I'm looking forward to it after reading your posts, Infrnl. I am in Colorado Springs too, so it will be a nice comparison.

Got my hydra from Tony wildman yesterday. First impression: Much smoother than the F5 programs. No more trying not to run into the car in front of me at a stoplight, but when I need to pass, wow!!! And that's on the daily tune. I'll add some PHP tunes this weekend to compare, I'll post mileage when I can, I still have a half tank of fuel.

I know this is from a while back, but I have the Hydra with PHP tunes and need to update them, just wondering if there was any significant difference between Tony's tunes and Bill's, which you liked better, etc. I initially loved the PHP tunes, but they caused the truck to shift pretty hard, and I just now replaced my transmission and I just want a nice firm, medium shift (dont need it to hammer in gear because its brand new), thanks for any input.

In my vehicle, Tony's tunes seem to be smoother than other tunes. Shifts are firm, but smooth, not hard enough to rattle your fillings loose. My trans has a shift kit, so I know that's part of the programming. Mileage was better with Tony's tunes than other tunes as well. I have tunes form PHP and DP.
