EFILive is a tool consisting of software and an interface box that goes between your laptop and the diagnostic port of your truck.

This very powerful tool will allow you to write your own engine calibrations. Basically you have access and the ability to change 100s of the parameters and tables that control your engine.

In the EFILive subforum here on Diesel Place, there is a FAQ thread that should answer alot of your questions.

http://www.dieselplace.com/forum/showthread.php?t=109517

To see whats involved, you can download our software (see my sig) and see whats involved. You can also download tunes from the Diesel Place Tune Library to see what other users are modifying.

Cheers

Actually, you buy it, make a copy of your stock tune, Email it to me, which I modify and send back to you. Then you compare what I did to your stock tune and go from there.

Shutdowns?

Has anyone with EFI experienced an engine shut down?

I am interested. I was first intriqued with Edge/Attitude. After reading about their shutdowns, I'm a little sketched out. Picturing a shut down while towing down a steep curvy grade!

Nope. Someone from EFILive will correct me if I'm wrong, but it's next to impossible for your engine to stop working due to a bug in EFILive.

The worst that could happen is it wouldn't start or run. You'd know right away if there was a problem with a tune you wrote.

Thats another inheirent advantage to EFILive; there're not connetions into the ECM, no wiring harnesses, and no power supplies to fail. With EFILive, all the wiring and connections in your truck stay 100% factory.

The edge module causes the shutdown not the ECM of the truck. EFILive reprograms the ECM with new calibration tables and even a new OS if you like. So far there haven't been any reports of engine shut down due to the EFI software itself. Problems usually arise from a user not adjusting a table correctly.

I'm definitely interested... a little scared too, especially after reading a thread by a guy that was playing around in a parking lot, locked his torque convertor with EFI and the truck took off when he put it in gear.
Seems like this is the way to go as far as complete control and not being limited by a pre-packaged tuner or box.
