Stacking Dp-Tuner F5 With Infinity -dx ?

Sorry for the rookie question but I have a F-5 stock 80 tow and 140 AS. Is it possible to stack the F-5 with the infinity -dx ? Thanks for you time.

Generally custom tunes cover everything... they know the limits and have already pushed them, stacking anything on top a custom tune is just asking for disaster.

Stacking does nothing to terrible things.
You can't actually stack tunes. If you "stack" a tune on top of an ICP fooler, than you're asking for a gusher, and possibly new injectors.
Custom tuners know what they're doing and design their tunes to work by themselves.

You cannot actually stack the F5 with the Infinity. However, very shortly we will be releasing a product that will enable you to run them together. It will basically let the Infinity control the positions on the chip(acting as a switch to change them). This will let you change the positions on the chip straight from the screen on the Infinity.

When it comes to stacking the tuning of them together, that is just not possible. A chip will always override a program that is flashed onto the PCM. Even if you could run the tunes together, you would not see anymore benefit than with just running one tune.

Feel free to contact me if you ever have any questions about our products. I would be happy to help you out.

@ Justin is there a plan release date for that hub because I plan on buying the infinity dx. Also how long does it take to load a tune on the infinity ( My spartan on my 6.4 takes 10 - 20 min) Is the estimate of time the same. Thanks for your guys reply.

We have no set release date yet, but it should be shortly. All testing has been done, and we are just waiting on the manufacturer.

It takes about 3 minutes to load a tune on my truck with the Infinity. I have not heard of it taking 20 minutes for anyone yet.

Let me know if you have any other questions I can help you out with.

It takes me about 2-3 min to load a tune. I can't wait for the new hub I will purchase that and a chip. Here is a video of the new hub

Yes, it is a very sweet unit.

Here is an image of the HUB with our F5 connected to it.



And here is my HUB all enclosed with the EGT sensor connected.

Sorry to go off topic, but which is faster the 2012 or the 2008?
