Glasinski,

I can personally guarantee we can offer the best customer service out there and the truck will drive/perform as good if not better than anything on the market. I write all the tunes and will help you dial anything in on the truck you need. We also have 10 people working here to ensure you get everything you need. -Bob

You guys do some good tuning it seems from a few trucks I've rode in. But when I found out you guys did smoke tunes I lost a little respect for you guys.:(

Yeah turn it down lol. What HP tunes you get? Might have to move the clock ring so you can't use the bigger tunes lol

I have the tunes supplied from duramaxtuner.com it goes economy, heavy tow, light tow, sport, and stock trans race. 60hp, 40hp, 80hp, and 100hp for the race tune. someone told me to drive it for awhile and the computer and tranny will self adjust to the tunes, is this true???? and should I just leave it in optimized stock economy tune????

glasinski,

The torque converter must have some wear and tear on it. How many miles are on the trans?

The 100hp tune in most cases is not going to throw the trans in limp mode unless the trans has either high miles or hard miles on it. I would recommend running tune 4 most of the time, or locking the truck out of O/D in the race tune.

As for the trans relearning I would give it 100-200 miles of mixed driving to completely learn the new tunes. It may hold the bigger tune a little better after that but if its limpimg it easily I wouldnt expect and miracles :)

Id be more than happy to turn the race tune down for you and email you that update if you would like. -Bob

Bob,
my truck is an lb7 04, it has 138,000 miles I bought it with 115,000 on it and come to find out there are holes on the pillar and down below where there previously was some kind of tuner installed so probably has been hard miles. but with that said I don't want to lower the horsepower on the race tune lol. its fine when I tear into it from a lower gear and speed, but it went to limp mode when I hammered down already going 50 or 60 mph! I have been going somewhat easy trying to get a feel for it. is it a bad idea to run it in the higher hp tow tune all the time????

Like I said the higher gears are where the trans is weaker so its not hard on it to run the big tune unless you get it into the higher gear and speeds. That is when the torque converter takes the most stress.

My recommendation would be either to lock the trans out of O/D or just to take it out of the big tune when running it into high gear and high speeds. -Bob

Hey Bob I just ordered your spade jack, are these tunes real smokey? If so can you change that up so there is no smoke?

Our tunes are not smokey at all. You can expect all 5 tunes on the Spade to not smoke even when full throttle.

Some people request smoke tunes and we will do that for them if they understand the problems it can cause. -Bob

Love my tunes from duramaxtuner. The heavy tow tune is awesome. I tow my 10,000 lb. 35' 5th wheel with ease. The heavy tow tune performs amazingly when going over steep grades and mountain passes.
