At this point, I'm at a plateau. I'm interested in testers, preferably within reasonable driving range and then would be making modifications to the tune based on their input. Hoping to have 8-10 testers by the end of the year.

Nice cutting in your quote. Think you might have missed a few key words before that cut.
Oh well, it just gets old hearing people bash Codie. Me and him talk quite a bit, and he's a sharp guy. He does this, same as I, because he enjoys it. Its a challenge, a passion, etc. I see you live in the same town I work in, I have EFI for the Cummins. I'd bet between me and Codie, we could help your mpg's as well. And no its not because Codie, or myself are trying to sell something. It's mainly for the enjoyment. Seems there are a few in here that aren't quite understanding that.

I'm still very interested as well, I have EFI hardware but no time to play with it!

You may be disappointed if you do. I spent $1500 on my efi stuff to do dmax, and cummins, just to find out there are MANY limitations to what it can do on the dmax side of life. The average people have no idea, and tuners sell it as "professional" stuff. Well, the tune is only as professional as the software is in depth. And unfortunately it seems efi just scratches the surface in many cases. Warp quadruples the amount of tables you'll have access to vs efi.

Wow. I'm actually considering buying a 6.7 after seeing this thread. I've always heard that the 6.7 was a slobbering pig, worse off than a gas jobbie half ton. My 96 gets 22-24 US mpg at 62-65 mph on cruise. (With a scratched #6 cylinder, slobbers smokes more out the vent tube than the tailpipe, external lubrication system, etc, etc) So absolutely I would expect a properly broken in infinitely tunable common rail injected cummins truck to do BETTER than my beloved pos. Glad to hear it can be done, and keep up the good work.

When I first bought the pickup, I almost went back to 5.9 third gen. Those will still see better economy than a 6.7. Even though it's a diesel, you still need a proper a/f ratio to produce the needed power to move the pickup optimally. More air, means more fuel. The next consideration would be workload, the higher the workload, the better efficiency you gain, with a 5.9 being smaller, it's workload will be slightly higher and net better results.

I still consider the 5.9, but I'm happy with this one.

I volunteer as well, but I am in Arkansas. Not sure how that would work.
It would all be done through email.

Knew I should have used the multiple quote option. I sent you a PM to help clear up my misunderstood position, i.e. trying to aim my remarks toward the person without using the user's name and not you. Figured owed you and Cpitock that much.
So far the best I've gotten is in the 18's 2-3 times. Think I like the skinny pedal a tad too much. I'll see if my fuel, air and oil change will help any. Thanks for the offer, I'll PM.
Steve-would be nice for a meet and greet, but seeing how you love to drive all over I can see how that would be hard to do.

So I downloaded this warp software that people are saying is so much better then efi live. There are more tables however I do not see this software as any better then efi live v2. What I do see is that warp has a TON of duplicated tables. For me its all about tables that are relevant to my tuning.

So far between efi live v2 for tuning and cummins insite for diagnostics I can do everything I need to do.

You're right about duplicates, but in my opinion it's more polished. I used software for oem tuning and I see it as polished as that.

I want to be right at 400hp and get the best mileage. Just ordered the last hard part for my 2nd gen upgrade, check my sig those are the parts waiting to get installed. I haul a 30' gn 5-10 times a year 10k overage load, and our 40' 5er 3-6 times a year. I was going to go EFI because I have a V2 from when I tuned my 06 but after following this thread im starting to think. Not sure how I can load an efi trans tune and use warp for the engine. Best I ever got hand calculated was 20.5 but im pretty sure i had a tail wind. :laugh: Not looking to break any records just wake the truck up and. Been toying with purchasing a VPN and setting my IP to a NON emission country.... well you do the math.

Knowing what you need is the first step. For what you listed, it would be quite easy. I haul as well and I'm happy with my results. What transmission do you have?
