    Turbo Brake Tune or Switch....my opinion

    I like it tuned. I installed the switch a week ago. Been running around with it since. Nostly up and down the interstate and back roads. Towed a little (150 miles) this weekend. I gotta say....I like it in a tune better. Felt like it shifted too much for my liking using the switch. Had it go...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    My bad...."soon" is a relative term. To me it means a couple weeks...to others...could mean something else. I do not doubt you....did some contracting in a previous life.....my rule of thumb is to double an estimate and add the 30% Jesus factor.....for when I take a step back and say "OH...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    Thanks Gentlemen......I ran a stock tune this weekend with turbo brake in it. Without T/H on it was fairly weak without rpm's. 4 pounds boost was the highest I saw it and that was leaving the interstate. 1-2 with the occasional 3 was pretty normal. Brake use was less but required. Downhill I...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    JoshH - I think I answered my own question.....I may have misunderstood your writings in that it would alter TCL and shifting as part of activating the switch and switch only. Which is different than what I thought I knew which is it is used in conjunction with T/H. Went back and looked and it...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    2004LB7 - first off....appreciate your replies. Secondly, I gotta ask cause sometimes I just can't not nuclearize things......is there a list of OS's that are affected? I'll look for it if it is.

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    JoshH - It is the LBZ.....hard wiring it is an option on the list. I have post favorited with all the part numbers and steps. Before I bought the FlashScan that was exactly what I was going to do. Not having a tune DPS switch I still may only because I think I would like the ability of just...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    Darkness I agree in this case. That would be a totally harmless solution. The point I was trying to make was had I not been informed, any changes I made would yield no results and lots of confusion about what I was doing. I appreciate it….I’ll just have to ask more questions on my end to find...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    No less interesting but I'm tracking now and duly noted. I googled it and found a single efl live forum post that went three deep. Without wearing you out over it let me ask.....do I need to make corrections to straighten out the tables so they reference correctly? OR......do I just need to...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    Uhmmmm......I made up a cuss word when I read that.....that sounds really important........lol! You are saying that these two tables below are in fact swapped?!? Which to me means the table(s) in T/H are 4WD Low tables and the 4WD Low tables are T/H tables. Now I have a 2WD so if I understand...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    So I see it now....the x-axis is TPS%. I looked at the tables cause I had the thought but reaklly thats how little I looked at it. Silver lining......I just accidentally figured out if I click on the heading for the pattern it highlights the colored line associated with it. Below I have Pattern...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    I hesitate to muddy the waters but kind of along the same line as Darkness's comment about T/H and converter lockup....I have been wondering (but not enough to look at it seriously yet)....is there a way to keep the trans in 5th gear with TCL till i get to say 70+mph and not be in tow haul? It's...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    2004LB7 thanks, you are correct and it is noted about using "HP" generically. It is the laymen coming out in me but I get it....it is not helpful for discussion purposes....adds unnecessary clarifying questions or opportunity to miss each other in the back and forth. Darkness - thanks, that is...

    TurboBrake on a stock tune is there any benefit?

    Have done some searching.....no definitive answer that I have found. Which may be my answer. I have added turbo brake to a stock tune to verify vane positioning and that its working. I have by no means fully vetted it and have not done it towing. I have only made a few test rides around the...
