Paul and Danny talk about a topic they know a lot about - EFILive, the tuning software used to develop calibrations for the Duramax, Cummins and a variety of gas engines. Both guys spend all day, every day, talking about EFILive because that's the underlying tool used by Calibrated Power Solutions. In this episode, they explore in-depth, what the software does and does not do. They also explain the difference between EFILive and a box tuner and the older method for tuning - an ECM chip.
Suncoast Performance's Dallas Penn visits to give Paul and Danny some insight on Powerstroke transmissions. Not all decisions relate to horsepower, according to Dallas. He likes to consider the use of the truck as well. Big horsepower and big torque require billet shafts - that's where the Powerstroke transmission build starts. Dallas says there's a revival in the popularity of the 4R100. The entire show goes into a lot of detail about all Ford transmissions and what owners need to know to get the most from their Blue Oval in every application - daily driver to performance.

Paul, Danny and Dwight also talk about bracket racing and how there's a difference between the horsepower goals in the Midwest compared to the East Coast.
