    EGT's, when do I back off?

    Not really. Unless you are running insane amount of horsies under the hood, think of aftermarket exhaust as novelty bling for your truck and aesthetically pleasing noise to the ears. Not much is gained from it. What you need is custom tuning and/or a turbocharger properly matched to your fuel output. If you are running a stock truck with a “boxed” tune I’d play with lower settings to find a happy spot that won’t give as high of EGT’s.

    EGT's, when do I back off?

    On my trip I ran into situations where my EGT was over 1500* for 30 seconds (passing a truck in a short passing lane) but overall I tried to keep it below 1300* My frustration is, what good is all this great power if you cannot use it? Will a larger than stock exhaust help to lower the EGT temps?

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    Just to prove, I dug up an old picture I took in January demonstrating a 2006 dash swap I did a few months prior in my truck, and I can confirm that RT WAS working. Still don't know whether it's just me or all 2003-2004.0 guys. If it's all of us, it would be irritating that a paid for feature was taken away without warning... Anyways, any other early CR owners out there to confirm if they do or do not have RT???

    For the cost you might be better off getting your money back and buying new, or at least having the guy pay for the board.

    Start a support ticket. However, you are likely looking at swapping out the board ($250) I think and you will need proof of the truck ownership.

    Bought this off a buy today for $600 and found out it is vin locked. Guy said the old truck was crashed so the tune might be on it still, anything I can do?

  12. Thanks Cummins, I will check around the pump some more. 4play, If that's correct and the tq setting just effects throttle tip in and not overall power I will leave on low setting and use my foot. I don't have any desire to needlessly smoke. Might try smarty trt 4 or 5 next as long as they don't boost more then 40, will see. But really sw3 feels great and smoke is very mild with good throttle roll in (very minor unless you stomp on it). I will do studs in next 6 months,. On a happy note I did an update to the edge cts2 and was very supprised and happy to find out it can control the smarty pod. Go into setting and turn it on and the control buttons take the place of top middle gauge display. On start up it says it will only change "smarty pod" when stopped but it appears to let you change while driving also. Hold down the button and it skips down fast or click 1 at a time. Very nice feature. Sw3 with pod at 50 is virtually smoke free. Emailed fire strike about ufc upgrade and custom tune. Will want to confirm that pod still will work with ufc as this edge instant pod tune change is pretty great for a 2005 truck. Custom should help a lot with my miss matched inj and turbo Thanks again gentleman
  13. Stock head bolts over ~43 psi seems to start creeping into the uncertainty area. From all the reports I have heard at the local shops, it seems to come down to "most hold, some don't". Another thing you may check is your intercooler. Dodge used 2 different types on the '05. One is all metal and the other has plastic end caps. The plastic capped version, as I had on mine, has been know to develop leaks even at stock boost levels. Throw a large single turbo or average set of compounds on the truck and the end caps may exit stage left and/or stage right. The torque setting will drastically change the amount of smoke you will see in the lower boost levels. For each level it will increase or decrease the amount of fuel commanded at lower throttle percentages. This is why the throttle feels more responsive and the diameter of the black cloud increases. Although I am not sure what the curve looks like for different TnT torque levels, if I remember correctly, full throttle with level 1 is the same as level 4. Level 4 just adds more fuel quicker in the lower throttle percentages. In essence, you can fuel just as fast and hard with level 1 as you can with level 4. You just need to apply your foot to the floor at a faster rate. I'm sure someone will chime in if this is incorrect. It has been quite a long time since I have used the Revo or TnT tunes.

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    Let me talk with the programmers about this one. I should have something to try come monday. As far as i'm aware we didn't take away any functionality there. I'll see what I can find out for you!

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    Yes I have reformatted. I used to use RT to control my fan clutch on the fly as well as a few other things. It really bothers me since I went with smarty for mainly RT. Otherwise I would have gone HP Tuners.

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    So it isn't so much that there isn't any support at all for the 03/early 04, just that there's virtually nothing that would be useful to change, as I was told. So you would definitely be correct there! I see you updated the tuner to the latest, have you tried re-formatting the SD card as well?

    Strange deal as that has always been on 03/04.

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    Was that a recent change? RT was always available on my truck. Just the options that could be changed over RT were limited. Even in UDC Pro, there are sections that say are RT capable.

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    Ah, says right on top 2004.0. That is why. No rt on 03 early 04. You stated you had before which was confusing. Shouldnt have seen if not available. Hope that helps. Thank you Brian

    As stated in my first post, I did check the commod connections with a multimeter. I even replaced the commod with a known working one.

    RT Menu Greyed Out on 2004.0

    It already IS on the newest version. In any case, I redownloaded the July 11 release, but the Touch is already up to date. Seems like it is not a software issue since I haven't been able to use RT for a few months.

    04 PID options

    Good morning everyone, I have a 04 Cummins and I can’t view all the pressure pid’s with the smarty touch. I have the newest update installed. I’m trying to view Governor pressure but options are not available to pick. Any ideas on what I can do. Thank you
