Yes your right,but I'm not going to drive it on that tune all the time. Its just going to be a "dyno tune" just for kicks and giggles. I mainly want to get shift on the fly capabilities for economy and tow. I know that changing my tunes now only takes 5-6 min but when I want to do it spur of the moment I like being able to turn a switch. The stock motor is good to about 550 rwhp, I'm not going to get crazy, I don't race it or hook and pull either but I'd like to have a 500 hp DD truck, but not going to do very much till I can get the trans rebuilt.
EFI is pure magic.

I wouldn't be happy with anything less if I was a duramax guy.
Looks like EFI is going to be a Cummins thing as well

If it's as user friendly as the Duramax EFI, there'll be no reason for the standalone they worked so hard on for 99% of the people out there.

Yep, if it's not already out it will be soon. They say it will do more than the Smarty.
It is out. Just recently came out.
Back on topic. Who is planning on going? I'm still trying to get the wife to come with me. And I'm still trying to sell the PPE. Will have to see which happens first.:rofl: May try to bring a tent to set up for shade and a central meeting area.
It shouldn't be that warm yet in May, but it'll most likely be me, my wife, and kid.

Dunno how many guys I know here in town will be down there.

Still largely in BETA though.
Very true. If I had a Cummins right now and was wanting a tuner, Id wait to get the EFI
If yall know anybody with a D-max that needs a tuner I'll sell my PPE for $400.00 shipped USPS. Pay-pal or USPS M/O. Two years old has case instructions and cable.
Thanks. I hope I can get this done in time for Beans.
Yes. I will probably order the switch ahead of time to install and pre run the wires, that way It will make the install go a little quicker. I had thought about if it worked out maybe going up on friday before the day of the event and getting it all done and stay the night and be there for sat. Just need to sell this before I plan that far ahead.
Yes, 5-pos switch, 5 tunes, reflash and all is around $700. This was back in Dec. at the other Dyno day, don't know if anything has changed since then or not prob. need to call and make sure.
I don't think it has, just wanted to know if you had a figure to plan at.
Just what he and I talked about while I was strapped on the rollers. I even asked about my 3 service trucks and he said he could get tunes for my two 7.3's and my 6.0 to help with better milage. We don't tow much with them so I dont need that much more power out of them but I know you cant have one with out the other.
Had a nice talk with Johnathon yesterday, got everything all lined up about my tunes. He has a "special" tune for a D-max just like I want. And an economy tune that will get 20-21 mpg. The others will be tow and so on. All I have left to do is sell the PPE , which I have an offer on it close to what I want so It may be fixin to leave, then its off to Beans. :woot:
