Best emissions intact tuning

I have seen guys talking about Calibrated and Proven for emissions intact tuning. What is everyone running for emissions intact tuning? I would love to be able to use the ez lynk platform and know Calibrated doesn’t offer ez lynk for the Ram platform last I checked. I know Proven has emissions intact but haven’t seen many people comment on their programming. Just trying to figure out which avenue to go for emissions intact tuning. Thanks!

Intact would like everything to still function.

Calibrated!!!

There is intact but self destructive (DRD) where it shuts off egr and def and killls the truck
There is “emissions intact” aka delete tunes that use egr and def and still soot up everything
And there is calibrated. Tuning designed for intact. Best. Money. Spent. 1-2MPG tons more power way funner to drive

I have read lots of good things about Calibrated. I would just like to use the ezlynk platform instead of the MM3. If they are the best choice I will get used to it. Lol

Firepunk just posted some videos related to their intact tuning. They’re putting down some impressive numbers for emissions equipped tuning.

Yes, everything is fully intact.

I have run Calibrated for almost 2 years on my truck, with their trans tuning and a line pressure increase kit from BD. IMO don't do it unless you do the trans tunes and pressure increase. That makes the most difference. No problems, no cel, runs great, tows great.

I'll say it again, personaly I would stay away from ezlynk or any cloud based platform. As these tuners close shop you are going to get locked out. You will have to go to a different tuner. If for some reason you needed to go back to stock you wouldn't be able to reload the tune you already paid for.

I'd only use hardware that allowed you to load a physical file. Cloud based is a nice concept it just doesnt make sense long term IMO.

I have Calibrated Powers Jack tune. 22,000 miles and counting (installed at 103k). Zero issues. Truck is a completely different beast.

I have not noticed any fuel economy gain (but I do use the additional power). DEF usage has remained consisting. Towing is *SO* much better.

You do need the reinfocement plate for the valve body; it's an easy install. Whole process was very easy.

No worries about being 50 state legal, and best of all, I really enjoy the heck out of my truck. It's how it should have behaved out of the factory. The added power is great, but the transmission tuning is just addictive. *SO* much better.

The guys at calibrated answered the couple of questions I had. I bought the "change on the fly" that you can mount. What I've found is that I've set it on the power setting and leave it alone, so you don't have to have that plugged/wired/drill anything. When I want (less???) power, I can plug it in and turn it back down for towing heavy.

My only regret is not doing it 100k earlier...
