If it feels better to you than thats great, but you are generating alot of heat. i would suggest and egt gauge just because with added timing you dont know what the cylinders are putting out. its a better safe than sorry kinda thing in my experiance.

Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but what's the reason for running the default timing? I'm new when it comes to diesel tuning, but have some experience with gassers.

I started with SW1 default timing, but with the amount of rattle I figured id play it safe and knock the timing down a level from default. Truck seems to run fine with less noise, but I don't want to cause any issues by doing this. Thoughts?

Just run it on SW-2. The knock will go away and the truck will run much better. If you do plan to get on it from time to time, run it in Tow Haul to boost your line pressure in your tranny..

As stated earlier in this thread, leave the timing on default with any of the RaceMe tunes.

would it be the same thing with a smarty tuner to always use default timing? is it harder on the motor / head gasket using the most advanced timing?

That seems to be the general consensus, but what's the reasoning behind it?

I've ran with the different timing levels on SW1 and didn't see much of a difference in EGTs.

For right now, I have no need to run the higher HP tune. The truck (stock) had more than enough power to pull my loaded gooseneck. If the exhaust brake worked on SW0, I'd be running that.

ive found the default timing gets me the best milage and power. yes the motor seems to have a little more rattle to it but seems no worse than any other new cummins motor ive run from 4cylinders all the way up to 605 hp isx motors in semis. ive got over 45000km with my Race Me on my 12 now and have tried every settin it has and it stays on default timing. the motor makes less noise with other timing settings but has never given me the same results mpg wise as the default. HG issues seem to be nonexistent with this tuner as long as you warm up the truck before gettin on it hard. ill be puttin studs in soon for future plans but ive run the piss outta my truck and towed way over weight and yet to have issues my truck jis keeps comin back for more.

I bought a used 2010 and spent the next three weeks at the dealership. After they fixed the o2 sensors, I was averaging 14mpg. Did what I had to do. Now I run sw1 with default timing. I know about the injector rattle that you are talking about, and tried different timing values. E-mailed the manufacture, and he said to run default timing for the best economy. Sw 1 on default was not going to hurt anything. I do drive pretty conservative, but with a little technique, I now just hit an average of 20MPG. Truck sounds great too.
