Hello all. I am looking for a good tuner for my 2014 Ram Turbo Diesel 6.7. Hoping someone will have recomendations or maybe one of you is looking to sell one. I just did a 4 inch lift and added 35's so now I have the low air warning so that needs to be reset plus I have heard the amazing things we can do with the turners. Like unlock the beast. Hope to hear from you all. Thank you

Doesn’t take much to turn these trucks from blah to beast. MM3, EZ Lynk or EFI Live are the platforms available to choose from for custom tuning. All 3 can accomplish the same as one or the other. MM3 is is an all in one package, tuner with gauges and SOTF, need to purchase EGT probe separately though. EZ Lynk uses your phone as gauges display and is cloud based for the tuner of your choice to tune your truck, think requires a CSP switch for having SOTF. EFI Live you’ll have to get an Edge CTS2 and pyro separately to have gauges or go with pillar pod gauges and a CSP switch for SOTF. Transmission tuning makes all the difference in the world. My preference has always been MM3, most of my work is done on the MM3 though. But you won’t go wrong with any of the 3 as your choice. If looking to delete things become a different story now due to EPA crackdown on companies.

I'm running EZ Lynk with CTT tuning with trans tuning and a SOTF switch. Super easy to install and flash tunes. I'm using an old Iphone (6 Plus) to monitor things. The truck runs so much better once you're deleted, you'll enjoy it.

Quick question from newby to Cummins.
Will an H&S MiniMaxx function in stock tune mode? Or does it require a tune upload in order to function. I tow heavy and don't want HP...want other benefits offered by the tuner.
Are any other parts necessary to use in 2012 3500? Thanks for info.

What’s the point of getting the minimaxx then? Or anything really if you just want to plug in a tuner and run it on stock.

Also interested to know if these units have 'issues' with longevity? Hate to hook that thing up, get a 1000 miles from home and go into retard..
Have not seen any such reports. I have seen deleted trucks sold with the tuner removed, and problems related. I'll keep any parts removed. I'd really like to find a trashed dpf. For tuning of course.

I don’t know any about the minimaxx but if the engine goes into derate with the deletes set, you got a bad tune plain and simple.

I was thinking more along the tuner failing. Seems as tho it becomes a permanent data base. Sorta like an active external drive. Is this correct? Can the tuner be removed once the chosen functions are loaded up? I've read reams on this thing, but cannot find answers to some questions. I've never read of one failing. Read that the plugs/adapter can be damaged. I can keep that from happening.

One a tune is flashed to an ecm the tuning device can be unplugged from the OBD2 port and that will have zero effect on the operations of the engine/transmission. The ecm doesn’t rely on the tuning device for the tune to function properly unless you have an MM3 or Touch and are using the RTG function for different power levels of tuning.

The ecm relies on various engine and transmission sensor to be functioning properly for itself to function properly, properly calibrated tune as well for ensuring things are turned off properly for the deletes.

Thanks much. That's good to know. That was a major concern. The minimaxx seems a less expensive way to do what I want. I'm going to order the thing and see. Thanks again!
