EFILive is pleased to announce the release of the first PC based data scanning and custom tuning software for the 2006-2007 5.9L Dodge Cummins ECM to complement our industry leading GM Gas and Diesel Custom Tuning / Scanning programs.
Our PC Scan Tool is considered by many to be the most powerful Scan Tool on the market, allowing users to quickly and efficiently monitor and log vital data on the chosen vehicle. EFILive's Scan Tool gives users the ability to choose between pre-selected data parameter lists on the 06-07 5.9L Cummins to monitor in real time just like the Cummins Insite scan tool can. Of course you can also read and clear fault codes as well as totally customize the look of all charts and gauges.
EFILive's PC based tuning package is the first of it's kind for the Cummins, this will change the way you think about electronic performance add-ons. You have full control over what the ECM does, no more one size fits all tunes, you can customize any of the 140 tables and parameters available in this initial release that control how your engine operates any way you desire. No need for add on boxes that 'fool' or 'alter' the ECM signals for more performance, and no more half truths about what your ECM is and isn't capable of doing. Just 5 minutes to reprogram any changes you make and away you go. Simply log your vehicle after flashing to generate the data to fine tune your truck so it behaves exactly how you want it to.
In just a few short months of BETA testing we've developed solutions for a range of functions that consumers want/need. In addition we've also created some industry "firsts" for the 5.9L Cummins, some of which are detailed below.
VIN remains intact (only product that keeps this intact 100% of the time, even when compared to the Cummins Tech Authority)
Fastest Flash time (just over 5 mins) when compared to other products available
No DTC's set/No fuse removal required/No double key off/on at end of flash.
Interrupted reflash full recovery ok.
Identification of files unsuitable for reading/flashing.
Tuner locking – Professional tuners can protect their intellectual property by preventing the reading of their Custom Tunes.
Over 140 tuning parameters.
RPM limiters – all gone. (only product on the market to date that eliminates all RPM limiters) The capability of this is yet to be fully exploited. Testing demonstrates 5500RPM is capable, however this is not the limit of the ECM. Fueling tables, and aftermarket modifications are paramount for high end users.
4200RPM with soft limiters (eliminating back off to 3600RPM) are fully functional and suitable for most applications.
Successfully removed surging and touchy throttle
Fuel hang significantly reduced (more work required)
Specific parameter tuning to suit customer's requirement (ie altitude, towing, racing, MPG)
Fuel pressure limiter can be raised beyond 26,000 PSI
Rescaling of ECM sensors (Rail Pressure, Boost Pressure)
Total control over injection timing and amount for all three injection events (pilot, main & post)
Most comprehensive Scan Tool on the market
PID group selection to assist users in data logging key parameters
Multiple ways to display data to assist with interpretation - 3D charts, strip charts, dashboards as well as individual cell data.
Expected Future Development:
We fully expect that after our initial release, we'll be working with our customer base to extend our product further. There is enough in this tuning software release to make some serious power (it's already been done in testing), and remove those traditional annoyances. This release contains 140 tables / parameters for tuning and we expect this list to grow significantly as we work with customers who tune their vehicles for specific purposes that will require further parameters to optimize their setup and as we ourselves learn more about the operation of the ECM.
Future releases aim to include:
CSP – Cummins Switchable Tuning. Use an EFILive Custom OS to switch tunes on the fly.
Black Box functionality for reading, flashing and logging to be implemented.
2007-2009 6.7L Beta to commence in the 2nd half of 2011.
2009+ Beta and 2003-2005 5.9L Beta – development will commence after 6.7L BETA is finalised. Dates are not yet available.
Whilst we are not the first to market a tuning solution for the 5.9L Cummins, we will certainly turn the traditional Cummins tuning methods on their heads. We are confident that those customers who purchase our product will not be disappointed.
When a customer purchases a Tuning Option license for a particular manufacturer two (2) VIN licenses will be included in the product purchase. Where a customer purchases both the GM and Dodge Cummins Tuning Option licenses a total of four (4) VIN licenses will be included. Additional vehicles can be tuned by purchasing additional VIN licenses.
Existing FlashScan V2 customers can simply purchase the Cummins Tuning Option license.

If you have read out and saved your Cummins Tune in an OLDER VERSION of our software, DO NOT FLASH it into your truck. You will need to download and install these latest software releases, update firmware and read your truck before commencing.
We specialize in EFI sales and support and have for many years. Give us a shout if you have questions.
Thanks Cindy, looks like the Red Bull will be flowing this weekend.
have you tuned any big injector, big single trucks yet? i have the black box from a dmax buddy and was thinking about going ahead and getting the software but ive got a pull the 18th so it wont leave much time for dialing it in once the new cp3 gets here.
