ive been looking around everywhere to find all the info i could about the TST because i havent seen any on here. hope this is useful to somebody besides myself.

Adjustable Timing Advance: The default is Auto mode with a limit of 12 degrees, which is the optimum for the TST POWERMAX™ if not stacked with any other product. In Auto mode the timing advance varies from 0 to the set limit based on rpm and boost. With ATA in Auto mode, the user can adjust the timing advance limit in increments of 3 degrees up to 18 degrees or turn it to OFF (0 degrees). With ATA in Set mode, the timing advance is not based on rpm or boost, but will stay at the Set value selected by the user. In Set mode, the user can adjust the timing advance in increments of 3 degrees up to 18 degrees or turn it to OFF (0 degrees).




Adjustable Program: Use the up or down arrow to select the desired program: the Standard program "Stnd", the early twins "tt03", the late twins "tt05", or the Economy program "Econ" (for improved fuel mileage). The twin turbos (twins) program fuels more at lower boost in order to help spool the turbo up faster. It is not just for twin turbos, but is for any bigger turbo. The standard program goes to full fueling at 32 psi boost. There are 2 versions of the twins program. The late "tt05" twins program for the 04-1/2 to 06 Dodge goes to full fueling at 24 psi boost, and the early "tt03" twins program for the 03 to 04 Dodge goes to full fueling at 12 psi boost. The 03 to 04 Dodge twins program will work on a 04-1/2 to 06 Dodge, but there may be excessive smoke. The Economy program "Econ" maximizes for fuel economy rather than for power. All trucks and drivers are different, so you will have to experiment to find the best Power and Torque Enhancement settings for you. Start with P=2 and TE=0 and try a few combinations up to P=3 and TE=3.

Rail Pressure Gauge: This is optional and will only display if you have the rail pressure option (only available for some TST POWERMAXCR™ serial numbers 5000 and above). It will display the rail pressure in thousands, so 15,500 psi will display as 15.5.

Rail Pressure Control: This is optional and will only display if you have the rail pressure option (only available for some TST POWERMAXCR™ serial numbers 5000 and above). It will control the rail pressure increase, OFF (stock, no rail pressure increase), 1, 2, . . . up to 9 levels. On the Economy program only: the last level is rail pressure reduction, which shows “-9”. This is for when you need to reduce smoke. It reduces rail pressure to cut power about in half. On all other programs, level 9 is the maximum rail pressure increase. On the tt05/tt03 programs: Warning, rail pressure levels 8 and 9 will exceed both the sensor and bypass valve limits and will most likely blow the bypass valve.

The PowerMaxCR has 10 power levels @ 2900 rpm and 10 torque levels @ 1600 rpm that are adjustable under power on the fly. Setting the power level and the torque level on zero turns truck power back to stock. Power level #1 advances timing only for good fuel mileage, reduced exhaust temperature, and adds about 30 wheel horsepower but does not add extra fuel. Power levels 2 thru 9 add increasing amounts of fuel and 20 horsepower per step at 2900 rpm. Each torque setting step adds 60 additional foot pounds of torque at 1600 rpm.

I've had one from Day 1 when they were released. I does what I need it to (FUEL HARD!)

Think of it as a smarty that can be adjusted in the cab, BUT not quite as fancy as a smarty because it does not write to the ECM like a smarty does

Alot of people stack the TST with the smarty of other box/programmer...

Do you have any specific questions?

love my tst stack. good stuff, very safe boxes from what I've heard.
I blew a fuse on my TST and it puzzled me for hours.... extra in-line back-up fuse I never thought of changing.... hmm. only trouble I've ever had other than the monster smoke!!!

what does each step mean when you press the button which scrolls you through all the settings? i have figured out the hp and tq settings but other than that im lost:CRY:

as your going through the menu(grey button) the first changes torque, or how soon and hard the box fuels, hit it again and it puts out into the different modes,scrolling up and down will give you these selections 'E' is for economy, 'S' is for standard, '5' is for late twins(full fueling at 24psi) and '3' for early twins(full fueling at 12psi) hit the grey button again and you can turn the boost limit on and off(boost limited to 35#)

I have the R37AP box, the R49AP has the EGT gage and you can set the defuel limits as well as a turbo timer.
