Smarty Tuner in a Common Rail Cummins

April 20, 2012

Just a few quick notes and updates on Smarty Dodge diesel performance tuners.  Currently, tuning is available on the 6.7L Cummins Ram trucks up through model year 2011.  Smarty is currently working on tuning and is expected to release that tuning for the 2012 Ram 6.7L Cummins pickups in the next few months.  At this time the only Smarty tuner that includes tuning for the 2010 and 2011 6.7L Cummins is the Smarty Junior tuner.  The 2012 release is going to be on the Junior platform as well.

Many of our customers want only the best Dodge diesel upgrades, and for that reason want to know if the new Smarty SSR is the “best” tuner for them.  It is important to note that the Smarty SSR is for custom tuning only.  If you don’t have access to a dyno and the time and patience to properly tune your Cummins engine, you’re doing yourself a disservice by purchasing the SSR.  It does not come with any pre-loaded tunes – you have to build your own.  And if you don’t know what you’re doing, it can be pretty easy to damage your diesel engine.

Recently wholesale distributors of Smarty DPF Delete tuning products (specifically the S-67 PoD  and the J-67 Junior tuners) made the decision to no longer ship these tuners out for sale with the dpf delete tunes installed.  What this means is that if you’re looking to use your Smarty as a DPF Delete race tuner, you still can.  You will, however, have to download the files from Smarty’s website.  Here’s a link to the Smarty DPF Delete downloads.  The process is a bit computer intensive, so if you’re not pretty computer savvy, we recommend you find a buddy who is to help you out.

The End of Duramax Performance?

August 19, 2008

I’m a Cummins man, let’s just get that out of the way right now.  I drive an ’05 Cummins 2500 and I love it; aside from the fact that the stock Dodge transmission and Cummins performance upgrades dont mix so well…

So with diesel prices being so high lately, I figured it was probably a good time to go see what kind of deal I could get on a new truck.  Now while I love my Dodge, and would really love a new mega cab, there is just something about the look of the new LMM Duramax and the Duramax Performance scene in general that just draws me in.  Maybe its the sturdy look or the clean lines both inside out out; the designers at GM have definitely outdone themselves on this model, with a few exceptions.

While I like the gauge cluster, and especially the option of the built in trailer break, the shifter felt like it was going to snap off in my hand.  In addition to that, the new LMM Duramax seems to be much louder than the other models that I have driven and seems to lack power in comparison.  It just seems like it is being suffocated by all of the emissions crap that is required on 08 and newer diesel vehicles.  So if you are in the market for a new truck and must buy new, I wouldn’t say don’t buy the new Duramax because I still really liked it; those are just some things that you will want keep an eye on.  If you have already bought your new truck and are looking for some LMM Performance parts, here are a few of our most popular diesel particulate filter friendly performance parts:

Quadzilla Stealth 2 Tuner, EFI Live Flashscan Tuner, and the Diablo Predator Tuner

Hypertech Max Energy Review

July 22, 2008

A while back I posted about finally having a chance to try out the Hypertech Max Energy on my 2005 Dodge Cummins.  It had been my habit up until then to try a new diesel performance chip or module every couple of weeks just to be able to offer reviews to you our readers but I must admit that I have enjoyed having the Max Energy on my truck so much that I haven’t had any motivation to take it off and try something else.  I want to start this post off by listing off the pro’s and con’s that I have found with the Hypertech Max Energy tuner:

Pros:

  • Excellent Power Increase – Now although I have not had a chance to dyno my truck with the Max Energy tuner Hypertech does claim an increase of up to 176 hp on the cummins.
  • Tow Safe – One of the best parts about the max energy is the fact that even on the highest power setting (Stage 3) you can tow safely. Now I haven’t had a chance to tow my toy hauler with this module I have towed several loads in my heavy duty dump trailer and have yet to see tempratures raise to an unsafe level.
  • No Smoke – Now I know for some of you that might sound more like a con than a pro but personally because of local authorities I’d rather fly under the radar as much as possible and one thing that helps with that is avoiding the smoke out of the tailpipe.  Also, another interesting thing to note about the lack of smoke, when I had the Diablo Predator Diesel Tuner on my truck it smoked a ton more.  It also had a little more torque on the low end but the same power at freeway speeds.  So it seems to me that Hypertech has done a better job of bleeding every ounce of power out of every molecule of fuel rather than just going the route of dumping as much fuel as possible.
  • Internet Updateable –  You can always get the latest version for your vehicle.
  • Oversized Tire Calibrations – Got oversized tires?  This unit can help!

Cons:

  • Small Screen – As you can see in the picture the screen is clearly smaller than the Superchips Flashpaq Tuner screen.  This is sort of a pain when working with it but makes for a smaller unit when you have to store it in the vehicle.

As you can see I don’t really have many con’s. I have been really pleased with the hypertech max energy, and if you are just looking for economy I would recommend checking out the Hypertech Max Energy E-Con.

How To Increase Diesel Fuel Mileage!

March 27, 2008

As of late we are getting a lot of people asking how to increase diesel fuel mileage.  With diesel over $4.00 a gallon and expected to go well over $5.00 a gallon this summer its no wonder why people are wondering how they can increase diesel fuel mileage.   Here are the things we have found that work best to increase diesel fuel mileage:

Diesel Performance Chip: Using a diesel performance chip is one of the easiest ways to increase your diesel fuel mileage, usually with about ten minutes or so spent installing a “chip”, you can increase your fuel economy by 1-5 MPG.  Some companies have actually released chips dedicated to increasing diesel fuel mileage including the Edge Mileage Max, Hypertech Max Energy and Quadzilla Max Mileage.

Diesel Performance Intake: Usually if you have already added a chip the next best thing to help increase diesel fuel mileage.  Diesel performance intakes allow your engine to breathe easier, which will help increase diesel economy.  You will usually see a 1-4 MPG increase.  Some of the best known performance intake manufacturers are S&B Filters, AFE and Airaid.

Water Methanol Injection: Now most people would recommend going with an exhaust system for your third mod to increase fuel economy.  We have found that when it comes to bang for your buck, the Snow Performance Water Methanol Injection Kits lower exhaust gas tempratures more and increase diesel fuel mileage better than an exhaust system.

If you have any further questions on how to increase diesel fuel mileage please contact us.

Diesel Performance – Miracle or Snake Oil

March 6, 2008

There are so many products out there that just seem to be too good to be true and there are too many people out there that are more than willing to take advantage of another’s lack of knowledge.  There are also sooo many out there that are willing to play on peoples emotions; you know, the whole “You can have amazing results for practically nothing, and for only minutes a day at no cost to you”.  We’ve all heard it before.  So what makes diesel performance parts, like a chip, or a cold air intake, or an exhaust any different.  You might ask yourself, “Can adding something that small to my vehicle produce as great results as so many people tell me they do?”  Or will these items really pay for themselves in the form of increased diesel fuel mileage, and reduced wear and tear on my vehicle?  It is these questions about these products that I am going to address and at the same time educate, because knowledge is power my friends.

If you were to modify a gas engine for performance, you would be required to install a different camshaft, bore out the cylinders to increase displacement, install high compression pistons and heads, increase fuel intake capability by installing a larger carburetor or injection system, adding a turbo charger or supercharger, adding a chip, and enlarging the exhaust system.  But then you are still restricted by emission control systems.  On the other hand, diesel trucks and cars are mostly turbo charged, and they already run at a higher compression ratio.  Whereas on the gas vehicles you would have to make those changes.  If you were to make those changes to a gas engine you would truly have a ground pounding beast, but would lose every day driveability.  The diesels on the other hand, are nice to drive around even with considerable modification.  With a cold air intake, a diesel chip, more efficient injectors, and a more open exhaust system, the diesels are still a nice ride, but when you really give it the gas, all heck breaks loose.  There is enormous power without reducing driveability.

Because of the nature of diesel engines, they are designed from the factory to withstand much higher compression ratios than a gas engine.  The diesel fuel combusts when it is compressed to a certain point whether or not there is optimum air. By simply shooting more fuel into the combustion chamber you can make more power. When you then improve the air ratio & timing of the fuel — you can make dramatic power and also improve engine efficiency.  Gasoline requires a spark to ignite it & must have the appropriate mixture of air to burn properly.  Also, there is also a lot more energy in a given amount of diesel fuel than in an equal amount of gasoline.

Below is a break down of the most popular modifications and explanation of their benefits.

1. A cold air intake is sealed away from the hot engine air, and is located where it can take in more air.  Cold air intakes are equipped with a filter that can take in up to 300% more air.  Cold air takes up less space, so there can be even more air, all that air helps to burn all the fuel providing more power and better fuel economy.

2. Diesel chips make alterations to how the fuel is delivered to the engine, making it more efficient and more powerful.

3. A bigger exhaust or a mandrel bent exhaust (keeps the tube round, and the size constant) improves exhaust flow. Getting exhaust away from the engine is just as important in combustion as getting air into the engine. There are exhausts now that will even vacuum exhaust away from the engine, making it so that the engine doesn’t have to do that work.

All of these modifications add to the fuel economy of the diesel engine, over time they will actually pay for themselves in gas savings, and will continue to keep your money in your pocket for years after they are paid for. Diesels are the wave of the future and more and more economy vehicles are being produced in diesel versions because they are capable of so much better economy. – Nathan Young
