Tuning instructions for the REVOlution software


We provide you a whole new tuning concept with a handheld performance tuner.
For the first time the Cummins engine performance tuning software can now be customized by the customer.
The REVOlution starts here!
How does it work?
If you prefer the Smarty's default software configuration, simply skip the “Adjust Options” menu and choose the CaTCHER level you
prefer, as in the previous Smarty softwares. If you want to change the default setting of any (or all…) of the customizable items, you
can enter the “ Adjust Options” menu , navigate with the “ > “ and “ < “ keys to the item you want to customize and enter your
choice. Done! Smarty will do the rest. Once the end of the item list is reached, Smarty will store your selections in its memory. In
this way, your preferred selections will be applied every time you program your truck. As a simple example, if you set the Speedlimiter
to “100”, Smarty will always use that value for all ECM updates, until you change the value again or return the truck back to
stock. When you enter the “ECM update“ menu you will find the chapter: “Adjust Options“. Once entered, this menu allows you to
choose among several items and levels of customization.
Speed-limiter:
From 25 to 250 mph in one mile increments
Torque Management:
# 0 - Default
# 1 - Stock
# 2 - Mild
# 3 - Moderate
# 4 - Wild ( aftermarket clutch / AT Transmission recommended )
Then higher the # you choose then less torque management remains and then more aggressive the throttle response becomes.
Injection Timing:
# 0 - Default
# 1 - Stock
# 2 - for stock injectors
# 3 - for aftermarket Injectors ( less timing advance than # 2 )
# 4 - for fuel economy ( more timing advance than level # 2 )
Important! The odd numbered SW's ( 1,3,5,7 & 9 ) use the advanced timing and the even numbered SW's ( 2,4,6 & 8 ) use the stock
timing.
This is only true if you don't adjust the options! With the Revo you can choose ANY timing you want, no matter if the Catcher you'll
download is odd or even! You CAN, add timing to the software's that have none, or use the stock timing in the odd # ones. Your
pleasure.... By definition for all adjustable options the default is # 2. EXCEPT for the timing. The timing has two defaults. # 1 for the
even numbered SW's ( stock timing ) # 2 for the odd numbered SW ( advanced timing ). To avoid confusion and to help the customer
in returning all levels to default ( if need be ), key # 0 is used to return Smarty back to the default levels. This is most important for
the timing. When Smarty is set back to default with key # 0, the even numbered software's will use the stock timing and the odd
numbered ones the advanced timing.
Rail pressure:
# 0 - Default
# 1 - Stock
# 2 - Mild
# 3 – Moderate*
# 4 – Wild* (aftermarket injectors are a MUST)
* In order to avoid damage to the injection system, do not use for prolonged time.
Wastegate: ( for the 2004.5 and up trucks with the electronic wastegate only )
# 0 - Stock (On)
# 1 - Off ( for aftermarket turbo )

If you have an adjustable wastegate and it's turned up, I'm pretty sure you'll want to run it on "1"... If you do eventually get a bigger turbo, you'll have to get a boost fooler and it won't matter...

Settings:
Speed Limiter: 250 (Yeah, RIGHT! )
TQ MGMT: 3
Inj. Timing: 2
Rail Pressure: 3
Wastegate: 1

Just a bunch of in town driving, no highway driving yet, but fuel economy looks REALLY good. Power is DEFINITELY there! :hyper:
No "Real" full throttle runs yet. :CRY:
Overhead showing about 21MPG, which
is pretty good considering my particular driving style at the time...:peelout

Just did some wannabe "careful" stuff, mostly because the motor was cold. Also, by the time I hit the interstate, I noticed a DPS officer behind me... :eek:hno:
Pretty sure I could outrun him, but it was his radio I was worried about! :rof

I just didn't feel lucky tonight but, there's always tomorrow!

Temps on motor got to normal operating range, 200F. Tranny temps to about 170F Avg. 180F peak, Pyro cruising city at 40MPH, about 400F.

A little more "Smokey", after about 1/3 to 1/2 throttle..(My heart was beating, and I was watching my guages, not my foot!) but then that's probably due to my Rail Pressure setting.

Curious what the Wastegate setting is going to do for me...
We'll see tomorrow!

after playing with the revo for a few days, ive decided to go back to the 4.14 until i get the injectors in. i noticed no power gain and it pulls less up high IMO. the power is overall smoother thru the rpm band!

after fass is on (insurance) i will be going to the track to test the revo and 2 previous versions in 1/4mile time trials.

a also get better fuel economy with the ol v.4.14

all 1/4 mi passes will be done on sw9, i just really think the revo will pay off when i have new sticks installed that way the rail pressure will really matter. ( i noticed no difference between #2 and #3 on Rp settings)

smarty, do u have any info on the beta v4.14 that i have as far as settings were on it? i know yall took it down cause it was eating stock trannys and ppl were complaining about the excessive smoke, but since ive had mine built, it is by far my favorite program! it;s gives me better fuel economy and pulls harder up high! only problem i have with it is no top speed limiter ;(
