    Anyone out there with high mileage on a TD eco trail tune. Any issues? Codes coming in?

    That is a very low boost mellow tune, likely run that on 87 forever.

    Had Ecotrail all last season and flawless. Bigger tunes get a little better mpg in my opinion.

    I was actually running the ecotrail last year 2500 miles, reflashed to powertrail this past season for another 2500. No codes no issues.

    I can't speak for ECOtrail but I've ran powertrail and max17 the last 2 seasons with zero issues and no codes.

    ECO and turbo force muffler for 5k. No issues. Feel it's a very safe tune and actually getting the same mileage as a 17 Viper.

    not sure why anyone would run anything under powertrail at 270 - its fine for the crappyest gas u can run. my buddys running a newer 250 tune with stock pipe - runs great but this thing needs a pipe - i consistently use at least a gallon less per fill up. the smallest tune i run now is max 17 at 91 octane 275hp....

    Yep, on our North trip I ran PT SM alongside my buddy that had PT SQ. He easily beat me every fill-up.

    THANKS everyone. I was thinking the eco tune because of the lower boost, Easier on engine. I run 5000miles a year. Plus I do big runs and sometime have to gas up at lodges in the woods and gas is sometime low octane. I don't want to ruin my engine for a little more HP.

    if u call ben - theres been no failures on the TD tunes at powertrail 270 because of a lean condition or anything he did - or run a choked up heavier pipe for 263 - i dont think 250 would be any safer - and youll get better mileage with powertrail... and its funner - and add some gear for even better mileage - and ... power trail feels slow now.... just sayen.. actually - go right to the max17 at 91 octane.. ran that as the slowest tune all year, my new slow UP and Canada PG tune - told ben he should make a 100 hp tune - so kids could ride it... or donkey friends would b fun to ride with...
