Changing My Tuning

I own a 2012 Ram 2500 CCLB and am looking to change my tuning. I originally tuned the truck at about 30,000 miles using emissions intact EFI Live tuning because I drove a lot for work at the time. Over the last year and a half I have put another 35,000 miles on the truck and am beginning to have issues with the emissions systems so I am looking to switch to delete tuning and ditch the cancer that is EPA mandated equipment. I already have an EFI Live Autocal and CSP-5 but need to know what all I will need to change to delete tuning.

Will the Autocal need to be unlocked somehow to switch the tunes?

Will I need an additional VIN license even though I will be tuning the same truck?

I have tuning for my 68RFE transmission but I assume it would be better to switch the transmission tuning when I switch the engine tuning as well?

When I switch to delete tuning I will be doing a TBE system, EGR delete, throttle valve delete, CAI, and intake elbow as well.

Thanks for any help.

Are you going with a different tuner? If so then you gotta get it unlocked if I remember right.
That is why I got the V2, I can load whoevers tunes I want and it came with 2 vin licenses. Ofcourse it is a pain to figure out for a newby like myself.

The original tuner will give you an unlock code with instructions and you the purchase new Hines of you choice and the new tuner will give you another code to link your autocal. Just did this and it was super easy

I will be going with a new tuner because my original tuner does not offer delete tuning.

Your autocal will need to be unlinked from your current tuner. No you do not need a new VIN license. You will need new trans tuning as well as engine tuning. You cannot keep the trans tuning from your current tuner as the engine and trans are flashed at the same time.
