6.7 idling?

Hey guys still haven't bought a truck between the two 6.7 we are farmers and live one mile from the farm the truck will be used alot of short runs to the barn and back and lots of idling as it is very cold here in the winter. as the 13 ford you won't be able to delete and the dodge i will probably delete is the ford still going to be reliable with more idling.

I think you are ok with the exception of watching the antifreeze. Apparently more idling can degrade the antifreeze.

If you're going to be idling a lot, install a high idle switch. If you're going to buy it, buy it now before all the deletes are gone

I'm in Central Michigan for work and we're having temps of about -10F every now and then and I idle my truck for 6-8 hours a day. The coolant temps quickly drop off to about 140 and stay there if it's below about 20F. I don't have a high idle switch but recently read an article stating that high idle has minimal effect on keeping an engine warm (it does aid initial warm up). My truck has 80k miles on it and about 700 idle hours. No problems, no "making oil" or anything else. Mine is deleted however.

6.7 idling?

The ECM in the 2013 ram is all new and you likely would not have a delete solution available for them either.

I think if you look hard enough, yes. The EPA is cracking down on tuners but there'll always be some kicking around. And the guy that runs DuramaxTuner.com has come out with a new ECM flash that's apparently kind of similar to EFIlive, so maybe there's still hope.

I loved having a big horsepower cummins but now I'm okay with having a good warranty and a truck that has been nice and reliable. My 6.4 buddies are always complaining about their trans is starting to go or they think they're starting to push coolant. That gets real old when you're a thousand KM's from home.

I have been speaking with a rep from Spartan and they are currently in R&D on the 2013 and they have heard about all the fines and restrictions put on a few companies by the EPA but they have no such warning on stopping sale and distribution of their tuners. I am going to get one for mine as soon as it is available just to have it in case the EPA shuts all the companies down. Also along with all the other required items... dpf delete, air box etc etc.
