I'm new to the forum and fairly new Cummins owner (used to own Powerstrokes).
Anyway, I have a 2008 RAM 2500 6.7 4WD 68RFE w/ Precision HD Billet TC (transmission was just rebuilt with OEM parts). Everything else is stock until this weekend. I will be installing an EGR delete, Throttle Valve delete, and a 4" FLO PRO DPF/CAT delete this weekend. My Smarty S67 will be arriving today... here's my problem. I used to have a Ford F250 with a SCT Tuner (which seems similar to the Smarty S67). All I had to do was give a diesel shop my VIN, tuner serial number, and mods that I did to the truck, and they would send me a custom tune that could be easily uploaded to the truck. So I'm confused as what to do with the S67?
Should I do the mods first and then load the S67 tune to the truck's ECM or do it before (my gut says after)? And more importantly, what setting should I load!? My truck is a daily driver. I obviously want better mpg's, but I want the most power available that is the safest on the motor and trans (I have a bit of a heavy foot on occasion). My last F250 was a serious head jerker and tire burner, and I want the same with my Cummins. I don't care about black smoke... rolling coal is fun whenever I get next to a Prius! I also have a heavy 6.5' x 14' open trailer that I use to tow my motorcycle and such (total weight 2500lbs or so). Eventually I will be towing a heavy toy hauler (maybe 5th wheel size). I will also be installing gauges next month to monitor Boost, EGT's , and Trans Temp. So I'll be able to monitor the important stuff soon. PLEASE HELP!!! I'm so confused! LOL!
