    new to making my own tunes

    hey guys! I just got my mpvi2 and am still very new to this. I was wondering if someone could share their tune with me so I can see what changes you made and how much. I just want to learn this safely and not change something too drastically and hurt the truck.
    my truck is a 2004.5 HO with an NV5600. Only mods are a MBRP exhaust and fass 150.
    Thanks in advance!

    Checked the repository, they are all stock when I put in my truck. There's even one that says "race tune" but when you put it in as compare file with the stock tune, nothing is different. And I watched this forum for tunes for the week or so before I got my mpvi2 and didn't see any tunes, even tried to search for them but cant find a thread that has one. I'm sure that if I were to just comb through this place for hours I could find them, but I thought it might be more efficient to just ask directly-

    My truck is fairly modded, but i try to make modest tunes. After i put stock injectors back in and test, ill try and share with you. My tune wont be exactly what you want though. I tune for high altitude, large turbo, and auto trans. It is 04.5 though.

    The first tune that Dom posts in this thread is a great starting point and perfect for seeing where to start. I ran this tune for about a week, made some minor adjustments and ran for another week. At the time I was looking to do the same as what you?re asking. I am now making a lot more power running a completely different tune that I loosely based off of another one of Dom?s tunes.

    It's not "tunable"?

    More challenging

    Correct. Very challenging. 30% less dense air up here. Add constantly cold temps and it's a recipe for smoke.
