Sent Bob W an email yesterday but did not receive a response. I was on the website and saw the new REVOlution software. My truck is a 2006 with exhaust and Smarty as the only modifications and it has a stock automatic transmission. Would I benefit from the new upgrade? I'd really like to be able to raise the shift points and rev limiter but I see that is only available for the race tune versions. Would anyone be able to comment on what I would be able to benefit from "tuning myself"? As far as the torque management, injection timing and rail pressure, I would have no idea what to change to or whether or not it would even help or hurt my performance. Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated.

More overall power, adjustable timing (in steps) as well as everything else you saw. This IS the Revolution.... the end all tuner for the CR Cummins.
But how will I know what to change without a lap top or dyno? Do I adjust by the seat of my pants or until I hear spark knock? I am looking for recommendations once installed to get me close without wasting $300 worth of precious fuel.

Not for download yet. I talked to Bob Wagner about this a couple days ago and he said we were REAL close, and Marco may get it up there this weekend some time. The race version will never be for download, it is VIN locked to the truck he sends it out to. It is still going to be free to upgrade as expected, but it wont be traded freely. One file for one truck.

i wouldnt worry about it if i were you. as it is, you dont have the suporting mods to handle what your current smarty is capable of.

Dont forget that when u start rasing the rev limiter u need valve springs to keep the valves from kissing the pistons, and a turbo upgrade to cool things down! Plus your tranny will need attention too!
Just remember with added power other areas need tended to as well!:thumbsup
Just an FYI

All I need is valve springs? Or do I need a cam too?

Is it difficult to change valve springs or do I need special tools besides my rusty Craftsmen Tool homeowner's addition set? I did all the other modifications on my truck using this set and my own mechanical knowledge. Just need to have the right torque specs, correct?

Not to be a dick, but chances are, if you don't know what you are getting yourself into with valvetrain, you might not want to "Practice" on your cummins!

I know with gas vehicles, you have the ability to pressurize the combustion chamber using an air compressor to keep the valves from falling inside the cylinder. But being that diesels don't have spark plugs, or any other access hole from which you can pressurize the combustion chamber, you'll likely have to pull the head off the motor to do it.

with our trucks you just have to have a set of chop sticks :thumbsup

Agreed though.... a cam swap isn't a easy undertaking !
