Anybody have the PPE economy power?

I'm looking for a reliable tuner for my LB7. I don't want much over 90hp to help preserve the tranny. I seen the PPE economy power. Its a good brand and in my range. How do they run? Mileage?

EFI Live (from a good tuner)>everything else. What's your budget? Is it you're daily driver?

Yeah its my daily driver. I'm going to keep the transmission stock so I don't want much power. Well, isn't the EFI flashtool $900? I wasn't really wanting to spend that much.

I'd honestly wait and save your money for Efi live. That's what I did and I can't wait for my tunes to get here!

You don't need a v2. Autocals are much cheaper.

What are Autocals? And where do you get them?

Autocal is pretty much like a handheld tuner with your Efi live tunes on them. You can get them from any tuner

Oh nevermind, I know what they are. Can you do everything on the Autocal you need to tune?

To put tunes into your truck yes, but if your planning on building your own tunes you need a v2

I'm not that good with computers so I wouldn't build my own. Sorry about all the questions, I'm new to the diesel world.
