Tuners and the 6.0L- Technical Questions
I don't know much about the tuners that are on the market, and that's a big part of my hesitation in installing one on my rig. I want to know whats going on with the tunes. I have a few questions that I have not been able to find answers on:
If I have a parameter, most likely EGT, going out of specifications, do any of these tuners defuel the program, or return the truck to stock?
When its cold is I don't want to have a tuner dumping a "tuned" fuel level into the engine 'till its up to normal operating temps. How are these tuners programmed for cold weather, say 20 degrees or less?
How do these tuners (which I understand are the Edge and SCT) doing when they tune the transmission to the new powerbands? Is it just shift points, or do they handle fluid pressure and the TC as well?
How are these tunes tested, particularly the custom files, when it comes to power outputs and towing performance?
I understand there is a strong following here for the SCT, and the Edge tuners on the forum. I'm just not ready to flash that computer until I know exactly what its going to do to the truck. The power and transmission tunes from these two sound great, I just need a little better understanding of what is going on.
