    Preparing to load a US friendly tune

    Thank you Brian, for the clarification!

    Oh yeah, you mentioned a VIN calibration in another thread. What do I need to know about this?

    Preparing to load a US friendly tune

    Hey, thanks so much for the confirmation, and link to that thread. I read your post, but don't have time yet to read the linked documents. I'll try for that tomorrow. Looking forward to the read and info within. Also, I'd like to confirm, that the software on the SMARTY Resource page, is the same as the software on the MADS page??

    Preparing to load a US friendly tune

    Hey All - My plans have temporarily changed, and I will not be deleting the truck yet. Rather, I'm planning on just running a SMARTY S67 for some tuning. As such, I have not done much investigating on how to go about it, or what else I need to prepare for. Is it really as simple as loading the correct tune for my truck onto my S67, then just updating the truck's ECM?? Anything else to touch or unplug on the truck? Truck will be used as a daily driver for a few weeks, then towing a TT this spring/summer/fall. Any and all help is appreciated. -Jason

    Buying new vs used SMARTY

    Thanks Brian. I'll look at that. I assume someone else will chime in, on doing this for non-US tunes? Should I start a new thread in the S67 section, now that I have that version in hand?

    Buying new vs used SMARTY

    So I picked up the S67 today. I confirmed it was not Vin locked before leaving. However, when I try to connect to truck at home, I get ERROR UNKNOWN SOFTWARE. I am 100% confident my truck is stock. Please help??
  7. Hey all - I recall something about this when perusing the forums a long time ago. Does anyone know if a 3rd gen exhaust will fit a 4th gen truck? IIRC, I remember reading somewhere along the lines that it might even be a better fit. Anyway, I have found a used system for sale, it's from an '06. Any idea if this will fit my 2011? I think '06 would have been a 5.9L engine. What about the turbo to DP joint? Anyone k know if that stayed the same? Thanks in advance, Jason

    Buying new vs used SMARTY

    Excellent info Brian, and thank you for the link. This clears it up for me perfectly. I'll be sure to check the serial number when making a purchase. If I happen to get my hands on an non-US tuner... Are software updates still available? To confirm VINlock or not, all I do is plug it in, with no button-pushing? By plugging it in, I'll get SMARTY or #SMARTY# on the screen? Is there a way to determine the current software that is installed, when buying used? Jason

    Buying new vs used SMARTY

    Hey All - First post here, so if anything below is a touchy subject for this forum, please let me know . . . I have a 2011 bare bones stock, auto, 3500. I want to delete it (in Canada), if I can push the funds to do so, past the wifey! As such, I have found a used S67 for sale locally, at a good price. First, how can I tell if it is vin locked? Can I use my bare bones stock truck to do so safely? I see there are two different looking S67's now. The newer ones are black/grey with a more modern look. The older ones seem to be the original blue ones, older/squarer looking. What is the difference, and what do I need to know surrounding this? The local one I found is blue. There is another product, seemingly quite similar to SMARTY, but branded RaceMe. Can anyone fill me in on what I need to know about the two seemingly similar products? I'll start with that for now. Any and all info is much appreciated! -Jason (PS - I ran a SMARTY on my 2000 CTD for years and LOVED it. I am not new to SMARTY, but I have not had a modded diesel in a few years, and am new to tuning a 4th gen truck)
