Just curious to see what settings you guys are running. My truck is pretty much stock besides FASS, intake, and clutch. Right now the settings are SW9, timing-default, RP-2, wastegate- off, and torque managment-wild. I am worried about using the timing setting, and wondering which one to use. If someone could point me in the direction to go on the timing and rail pressure, I would be greatly appreciated. I plan on going the the track tomorrow so if you can help please do so. As of right now I think it runs about the same as it did before?

I am also interested in what everyone is running. I have been having problems with the Hot juice and have recently took out the juice box and downloaded the smarty. There is a lot of power and it is smooth all the way to redline, however it smokes Like a choo choo train. How can I run this thing with less smoke? I have a pretty big turbo and it takes a little bit to spool it but daily driving I don't want to smoke out everyone. I miss the in cab adjustability of the juice.

If you dont like the smoke, go back to 4.11 or the REVO non-TNT. I too have a turbo that likes to lag and with TNT I have to be very conservative with the loud pedal until I see 10psi. With REVO non-TNT I can control smoke WAY better. :peelout

TNT is more for trucks that have the supporting mods. Without them you wont see much improvement over standard SW.

I would suggest running REVO non-TNT on SW#9 TQ-4 TM-4 and default everything else. This should give you the best of all worlds....good MPG, low temps, and keep that stock turbo together!!!:thumbsup

Thanks! I will give that a try. Running the timing on 4 will not hurt anything correct? Anyone else have any suggestions?

my truck is pretty much still bone stock even down to the lift pump.

TNT on #2; RP default; TM stock; timeing stock feels about as strong as revo #6 with similar settings(except I run TM on wild)

I found running TM at anything above stock causes my RP to drop too much and I have no power below 2K.

Like I stated earlier....without the supporting mods for TNT, you are not using it to its full potential. Without stix, turbo and solid RP, TNT is not going to give you what it was made for. I would suggest going with what I said before with regards to settings on the REVO!!

Again, this is purely my opinion. Feel free to do what you like...:thumbsup

Run #4 on timing?
Timing on #4 should yield the best MPG and lowest temps. However pay close attention to timing rattle!!! That is the biggest killer of pistons. Most people have no issues with rattle at all, but every truck is different. Just be vigilant and pay close attention to the sounds that your motor makes...it will tell you all you need to know!!!:thumbsup

Get a LP ASAP!!!! Your poor CP3 is begging for more fuel:CRY:...do you have a LP psi gauge????

If not, then I would be willing to bet you are pulling your FP down to 0-2psi, which is no good for your CP3!!!:thud:

if you guys are going to run your rp on 2 then turn the torque to 2 or youll drain your rail and it will pop and crack ive found if you keep the timing and rp and tourque on the same settings its best for all your parts just my .02 though good luck with your findings

i just got my smarty tnt and have been running mine the last two days on #9 with rail preasure on 1 and torq on wild. and man does it pull hard. I cant belive it wont slip my clutch and i got 38,000 miles on it and tons of racing and my turbo is on stock. I know i need a fass and turbo to fully use it but money isnt there right now. is this normal for a truck to run good on these settings like this? I havent had any problems and have a great powerband.
