    Last question, is there a way to view (graphically) the effect that different software options and settings are making to the engine ? I am not looking to edit anything I just want to view the effects that the options and settings make in a graph or chart of some sort. At some point I would like to upgrade and get the udc dongle but I think it will make more sense to get as much technical knowledge on how the available tunes on the smarty touch work and effect the engine before going any further.

    Thanks I'll give sw7 a try, do the following settings make sense as a good starting point ? Fuel-stock, timing-1, torque-1 and are there any warning signs I should be looking for in regards to engine sounds and exhaust smoke ?

    Also I don't think I ever mentioned that it is an 04 QCSB 4x4 5.9L w/48re trans.

    Thank you for the response, to be honest I cant even remember what stock egt's where since the truck hasn't been completely stock for almost 3 yrs now. Searched online for what "safe" egt's would be but I seem to be coming up with several different answers so I guess the next question is what are considered safe egt's ? I know the melting temp for aluminum is 1220*f but I am not sure if cummins aluminum components are actually aluminum or aluminum alloys that may vary in melting points. There is also the debate of how long would you have to hold the temp before aluminum actually starts to melt? As for recommending a safe options based on mods that would be highly appreciated! Current mods are as listed: -Full Goerend Transmission w/Billet input shaft, levers, flex plate and triple disc clutch -Borge warner 63/68/14 turbo "screaming eagle" -AFE Mega canon Air Filter and tube. -Wilson manifolds thrasher intake horn/Heater grid delete -ARP Head Bolts -4" mbrp turbo back exhaust (catless) -Airdog 150 Fuel pump (OEM fuel Filter Delete) -"150hp" injector nozzles w/OEM fuel injector tubes update Those are all the major Performance upgrades I can think of :think: Being that I live in South Miami there are times that aggressive right foot action is necessary in order to do some evasive maneuvers :smart::lmao2: so I currently have POD set to 85 as a safety buffer but I am open to any other recommendations that would help in this department as well.

    Hello, I am still very new to smarty products so I have been exploring the different settings and parameters on my smarty touch. I have noticed a lot of different results in smoke, power, sound etc. My question is, is there some way to confirm the safety of a tune thats not based on sound, smoke or the power felt at the seat of your pants ? As I mentioned before I'm new to all of this and I dont want to rely on just my judgement of weather a specific tune "feels" safe or not. To be a little more specific my main concern is timing and long term engine reliability. Thank you for your time.

    Blank Display Screen

    On monday I went to start pulling everything out and tried it 1 more time and it started up with no problem and hasn't blanked out since. I'm going to keep runing it to see if it happens again. Do you think it could be software related ?

    Blank Display Screen

    Hello everyone, In the past 2 days the display screen has been going blank at random times while I'm driving and also when starting up. It started off with just blank flashes that would last a couple of seconds and then go back to the gauges display, then progressed to staying blank upon start up and coming back displaying an image minutes later. Today I drove to and from church and it did not display anything through out the whole drive. All I am getting is a blank lit up white screen, the auto screen dimmer still works because the brightness is still adjusting on the white screen but nothing is being displayed. I have checked obd2 plug, head unit plug and egt dock plugs by removing them and making sure they are properly connected and all is properly connected with out resolving the issue. Any other recommendations that may help with this ?

    Smarty touch, best starting point?

    disregard
  12. Hello Brian, I have an 04, 2500 QCSB 4x4 with the following Mods. - 05 Re-manufactured Long block by Black's Diesel - MBRP 4" Turbo back Exhaust - AFE Mega Cannon - Borg Warner 63/68/14 "screaming eagle" - 90 nozzles - AirDog 150 - ARP Head Bolts - Wilson Manifolds Thrasher Air Horn - Built transmission by Inline Performance with Goerend valve body, billet internals,Billet Input shaft ,Goerend triple disc TC and billet flex plate - 34" tires on a 3" level My goal is 500-550whp suitable for daily use. I do not tow often maybe once a month I'll tow a 14ft double axle box trailer loaded at about 9k max. so a tow setting would be ideal to have as well. I understand that their is not a standard when it comes to tunes, I would just like a starting point in regards to settings and parameters and directions on how to make final tweaks to suit my needs. My apologies for my ignorance on the topic but I am crossing over from a Bully Dog GT and have not had any experience with a tuner this complex. Thank you for your time
