Today I am shipping my stock ECM to Kennedy Diesel to get a custom tune and I am going to leave the DPF installed. I am excited to see how this works out but I believe I am going to be very happy with a clean tune that will make the truck run better and cleaner and the DPF regen will be a very minor thing that will be driven off mileage and not soot loading.:thumb::thumb:

Will update a this plays out:D:D:D

ECM arrived

Put it back in truck

started right up no issue-:thumb:

First impression:

Throttle is crisp

EGT is down 75 degrees or so just cruising

it pulls hard under WOT definitely seat of paints faster than before:2cents::D

soot load actually counted down as I drove it :thumb::thumb::)

I plan to pull the trailer later in the week and see how that works out

initial grade A++

First regen with tune

looks like the truck is going to regen every 450 miles. Soot load was at 13g after 450 miles. Regen lasted 13 miles as was uneventful no alarms or warnings :thumb::thumb:

Truck still runs great fuel mileage is up about 15% by hand calculations :D


so far no issues at all, I was a little nervous over this but I believe this was the smartest thing I have done in a while(emissions compliant tune). :thumb::thumb:

update best laid plans sometimes go down toilet

The plan has been aborted, there are several bugs in LMM that must be worked out over time and I don't have the time. Talked to John and we agreed best plan was to just retune and delete the crap out of it. That recipe works without a hitch.

Truck is down for make over:D

delete and forget is the battle cry
