    The Smarty isn't approved here in Kalyforrnya so it isn't legal to tune with it here. With that said; If all you're doing is loading an emissions legal tune then you could return it to stock about a month prior to testing (enough time to reset the I/M's). Once you pass you reload your tune and enjoy it for another 23 months. Kalyforrnya doesn't test for opacity so it doesn't matter how clean you run. It's all about satisfying the I/M's and having all the equipment on the truck.
  5. Wondering if you can help.

    I'm in Maine

    Bought Smarty S-JR67 in 2014. Hooked up to my 08 6.7 (set at performance)and worked fine for one yr. Then coming up interstate once the truck did major smoking and went into limp mode. Never did I continually hammer on it just was using the truck to tow landscape trailer. So when it gets home I hook up programmer to it and kept getting can 161 error. I tried everything and then had the company send a new cable. Got new cable and could get it to program to towing but not performance. So each time I get the can 161 error it will say previous update failed and it is returning it now to stock. 

    When I plug it in the first screen says #SMARTY# and some quick info so it appears to be locked to the ecm.

    I hook up and select any option for programming the ecm and I still get the can 161 error. I took truck to a shop that programs diesels and they said it looks like a communication error and suggested the Dodge dealer reflash my computer.

    Here we are several yrs later and I sent the truck to dealer and had some recalls done. Asked them to reflash the computer so I could try to get the programmer to work again.

    Get truck back and try to again install the S-JR67 and same error CAN 161. The update has failed so then it takes it back to stock. Yet when plugging it in to truck the screen briefly shows #SMARTY# and numbers so appears to be locked to the vin?

    Any help?

      Sorry for the late response. I never got a notification that I had a message.


      With the tuner showing #Smarty# it indicates it is vin locked. Did you have the dealership flash over your tune or forget to return it to stock (unlock) before flashing?


      About the only thing I can find on the error code is it's a can bus time out, whatever that is.

      Another is batter voltage during tuning so try loading a tune with a battery charger hooked up and see how it goes.


      Hope this helps, dan

    R.I.P. my love

    Sucks needless to say but glad you're ok. Consider buying it back from the insurance company and salvage as much as you can. When a large section of my tree assulted my Suburban I bought it back for less than $500. Pulled the built and blueprinted 454 with 8k miles on it, auto trans with 14k miles on it, prestine interior seats etc, new wheels and tires and sold them off to recoup my loss. Ended up pretty good with a new 2007.5 6.7L Mega cab and cautiously park it under the same stupid tree. (If it does it again I'm cutting it down!)

  10. You need to read the "Recovery of the ecm" section in the manual. It will walk you through the recovery steps. If that doesn't work I'd suggest calling customer service directly.

    Fass fuel line problems 150/titanium

    I can't help with the Fass thing since I don't have one but if it's being eaten away and cracking at the fitting then no that's not normal unless the hose isn't rated for your application. If it's doing that at the fittings just imagine what it's doing along the whole hose length. I would definitely replace it asap and not use the same hose. There are many vendors that make diesel rated fuel line with gates being one of them and I wouldn't mess around with a crappy fuel line so close to the hot exhaust. Also, if you're in a high percentage mix biodiesel state then make sure you buy hose rated for it too. I see Fass has a replacement hose kit but that's your call.
