  1. 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.

    I'm guessing that is exactly what happened. Since the truck was already running and the program partially wrote I would imagine when you put it in drive and sent commands to the ECM it lost its mind. When a flash fails, the ECM will have incomplete and possibly conflicting info causing a no-start as a fail-safe. I'm surprised it didn't die the second it tried to write. I also thought the Touch displayed a warning if the engine was running and you attempted to flash. I've never tried it and probably wont. If you haven't already, I'd re-flash under good circumstances to make sure the program is complete and doesn't cause issues later. Edit: After re-reading your first post it sounds like you may have missed a step on the key on/off portion after flashing. This would also cause the issue you described with possibly allowing you to restart and run for a bit. I'm trying to remember the name of the state the ECM ends up in. Kind of like a limp mode or what happens when a key is used that is not coded to the truck. It will start and run but die when you try to move it. I'll see if I can find what the condition is actually called. On this same topic, make sure your batteries are fully charged before attempting a flash and you may want to pull the fuse or install a switch to shut off your lift pump when flashing. The ECM is very sensitive to voltage drop and will fail if it drops low. If your batteries get weak or connections dirty you may end up finding out the hard way. In that case you'll want to unplug everything that may turn on and consume power while you flash. Especially the cycling lift pump. The erratic on/off voltage cycling seems to cause most people an issue at some point or another. Grid heaters too.

    You may be able to adjust some of it out. Take your time and make single adjustments. In the end, custom tuning would be the option for a clean powerful tune.

    Torque setting as it is used for the parameter you are seeing is the relationship of throttle position to fuel. As it is increased in levels you are supplying more fuel at the same throttle position.

    Hopefully you went for the ARP 625s. For now I'd say the lower power levels will be your friend for controlling smoke. Either way I'd try timing at 3, rail pressure at stock, and torque at stock if you need to keep the smoke down. I'm sending a request up the chain for information on the duration setting but since its real time you can play around with it and see what works best as with any of the other parameters. You may want try the lowest timing setting and see if it will help spool on the bottom end. It ends up being a balance game with a fixed amount of parameters in the canned tunes. Try different settings one at a time until you find what works best. Custom tuning would definitely be your best bet.

    Ummm.. Yeah. That is a bit of a step up. Are you running larger injectors?

    Duration is the amount of time the injectors stay open. In other words pulse width in microseconds. The longer they stay open, the more fuel is injected per pulse. More fueling available = more power available. Now that doesn't always mean you will make more power if you cannot support the amount of fuel. It sounds like you are there with more fuel meaning more smoke.

    After loading a Revo tune, I see that you are able to change power levels somewhat. Duration was not an RT parameter the last time I was in there. Let me try to dig up some specifics on it and get back to you.

    I will also go verify that I am not missing something with being able to change power levels with Revo/TnT through RT. I have been running my own custom tuning since before the real time tuning was available so I haven't navigated that section for some time now. I don't believe it has changed.

    Please let me know if you run across any other issues. I'll support however I can and we have many others lurking in the forums to fill in the blanks that I cannot.

    RT On the Fly (engine running and not running) This is where you would change parameters of an ecm tune (in essence changing power levels) or just a single parameter (ie bump up speed limiter) to customize a tune on the fly. You can also change the limited features of a Revo/TnT tune.

    ECM Full Flash (engine not running) This is where you would change between power levels with Revo/TnT and load a base custom tune.

    Essentially you can change nearly every parameter in a tune on the fly. This is the same as changing power levels but it has to be done through the commod and not by flashing the ecm. I’ll get you some pictures shortly to illustrate the difference in menu selections.

    Power levels with a UDC Pro tune is done by changing individual parameters or groups of parameters. You cannot change between tunes in Revo or TnT. Just parameters (timing,pressure..). To completely change tunes requires a full flash like you were trying. This cannot be done with the vehicle running.

    Reman stage .5

    Running the BBI 1.5 Reman's in my '05. Only a couple thousand on them so far but by far superior to the BMS 90hp injectors that I had before. Noticeably more precise when tuning. Slight mileage bump and cleaner burn upon install. Fuel delivery and power is much greater when called upon. Very high quality units.
