    Bolt-on Tune to learn from

    I have a 2018 GMC Sierra 5.3 6sp. The only mods done to the truck right now is intake, 2pc driveshaft and cat back exhaust. I had a diablo predator hand held tuner and I really liked the performance tune, I could tell the difference from stock. I decided to upgrade to HP Tuners because I want to convert the truck to flex fuel and some other stuff that will come in the future. I am hoping to learn as much as I can about HP Tuners. I have watched tons of videos and read until my eyes bleed.

    The reason for this post was to ask if anyone had a good safe tune for my truck, so I can learn from it, but also gain some performance back. By reverting the truck back to stock tune to install hp tuners, it feels slow as crap. I searched the forums and didn't find any tunes for it. I did read I need to turn off DOD/AFM, but that was about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you don't have a tune and just have suggestions that would be great to! As of right now the only thing on my to-do list is DOD:disable.

    Save your stock file and upload the diablo tune again. Read the truck with the diablo tune and save that file as well. Now you can compare the files and learn a bit off that.
