Cummins Performance, the Best in the Biz

July 1, 2008

The Dodge Cummins diesel is known for its diesel fuel mileage and ability to be built up for power…. and known for its transmission for different reasons.  The Dodge Diesel trucks are the favorite of anyone that is looking for fuel economy in a diesel and doesn’t have a brand preference, because the dodge gets the best economy of them all.  Even at that, things are tight with the cost of diesel and the hard times in the economy.  There are some things that can be done to make it even more fuel efficient.

The first thing that anyone is going to do to make their Dodge Cummins diesel more efficient for fuel economy and power is install a Cummins diesel chip, programmer or module of some sort.  Cummins performance diesel chips, programmers, and modules all do essentially the same thing.  They alter “timing” or when the fuel is injected; “duration” or how long the injector is held open to release fuel; or “pressure” which slightly increases fuel line pressure to put more pressure up against the injector and get a better atomization of the fuel.  Most chips, programmers or modules use a combination of the methods to improve engine efficiency.  Most chips, programmers or modules give anywhere from 1 to 5 miles per gallon increase in fuel economy, dependant upon driving habits and the truck configuration itself.  The gains for the 5.9L Cummins engines are pretty consistent, however, the new 6.7L Cummins diesels are different.  They have a new emissions control system with a diesel particulate filter that hampers performance and fuel economy.  Most chips give these new trucks about 1 mpg better fuel economy.

Another way to increase efficiency and power are air intakes and larger diameter exhaust systems. Cummins diesel intakes generally give about 1 mpg and exhausts can be anywhere from 1 to 4 mpg.  If you do a chip, intake and exhaust all together, you actually get a little bit more out of each item.  The nice thing is that all the add-ons give more power and pay for themselves pretty quick in the added fuel savings.  The newer Dodge Cummins diesels don’t really need an exhaust upgrade since they come standard with a 4 inch diameter exhaust from the factory on the 2004.5 model and newer Dodge Cummins diesel trucks.  Performance diesel exhaust changes that can be made on the 6.7L trucks is very minimal due to all the sensors in that exhaust system.  It’s nice to know that we have alternatives though.

Diablo Predator Tuner Review

September 12, 2007

A couple of months ago, my boss at Parley’s Diesel Performance asked me to put the Diablo Predator Programmer on my 2005 Dodge Cummins so that we could get some real world test and numbers as far as mileage gains etc.. There had been several of our clients who had purchased this diesel tuner from us and had been reporting increased diesel fuel mileage of anywhere from 1-4 MPG so we wanted to see for ourselves what it could do.

What’s Included:  Here are a couple of pictures of what you will see when you open the Diablo Predator package.  When you first open up the package you will see the Diablo Tuner, as you open it up you will see the Instruction manual as well as a promotional Ruler.

 Why The Diablo Predator?  A lot of our clients are interested in the Diablo Predator for the following reasons:

  • Economical- Compared to some of the competing diesel programmers like the Bully Dog Triple Dog  priced at $597.99 or the Superchips Flashpaq  priced at $499.99 the Diablo Predator Programmer is a deal at $399.95.
  • Great Performance Gains-  For my applications, 05 Dodge Cummins, there are three performance settings and those are 60hp Tow Setting, 100hp Performance/Economy Setting and 160hp Extreme Performance Setting.  In my opinion its great bang for the buck.
  • Increased Diesel Fuel Mileage-  Like I said earlier we had heard from out clients that they had seen gains of anywhere from 1-5MPG, with my truck I saw about the same range actually, some tanks 1MPG better and some tanks 5MPG better.  It just depended on how I drove it, of course.

Why Not the Diablo Predator?  I have really enjoyed the Diablo Predator during the time I have had it on my truck, how can you not enjoy 60-160 more horsepower right?  The main problem that I have had with the predator is:

  • No Over sized Tire Recalibration on the Cummins- If you drive a Duramax  it’s a different story but I would have liked to be able to recalibrate my speedo to get more accurate fuel mileage etc..
  • No Speed Governor Recalibration-  Who wouldn’t want to go a little faster right?

So in the end I am overall satisfied with the performance and mileage increase for the money with the Diablo Predator Tuner, if you are running oversized tires and have the money you might be better off with something like the Superchips Flashpaq.
