DP-Tuner econ tune problems???

I've heard that there have been problems the the econ tunes with DP-Tuners. Is this true? I know someone with an 01 who's been running the 80HP econ tune and hasn't had any problems.

This could be a touchy subject.

I personally have an 80E tune...and have no issues whatsoever.

But aren't you having issues with a 40 tow program?? Just wondering, not trying to start an argument.

If I may say starting a thread with "I've heard " will lead to many other opinions be voiced. I will voice mine first.

There was a survey that was on a Dealer of ours site that ened up on other forum that was done with our insight as well as others to put together a survey of what people had done to their trucks before their trucks ended up in the trash. The intention of this thread was to find a common denominator to a very strange outbreak of demised eninges. Now remember we are dealing with aftermarket highly modified trucks of the people who posted in this survey. The survey ended up being a pointing fingers thread more so then finding out what the common denominators were. I'll ad, that many other guys windowed their blocks using other tuners programming. When asked if they would fill out the survey they declined to.

I will touch breifly on our company. Our company has been at the forefront of diesel performance for over 5 years now. Jody's desire when he started tuning was to make sure his tunes were safe. We did that by purchasing equipment in 2005 to monitor many different aspects of the engine and one was when different tunes were being used.

Now to understand modifying your truck. Alot of people don't stop at gauges intakes and exhaust systems. A lot of people do injectors, turbos, fuel sytems and many other things to get more horsepower out of their trucks. Some use alternative fuels like nitrous for extra power gains and water/methynol injection, and propane for cleaning up the extra smoke better. All these alternative fuels advance the injection timing further. It is essential to run proper tunes set up for the hp shots you are planning to use them. If not you can hurt the motor.

Many of the people who posted in that suvery posted they were in the 80 econo. Most people run in the 80 econo for their daily driver tune. The damage that occurd to their eninges happend long before that moment. Most of those guys either raced, sled pulled or played heavily with their trucks on a daily or weekend basis.

All in all this is aftermarket, if you plan to modify your truck know what your getting into.

We have seen completely stock trucks melt pistons down to nothing with nothing done to them, not even a tuner and we a have seen dedicated race and pulling trucks never window a block.

If you have any questions about Jody's tuning don't hesitate to give us a call.

I have a DP and wouldn't trade it for anything. I also drive and tow by my gauges, not my right foot. You have to know when to say enough is enough and back out of it.
You have to be smart about things, if not then you need to have a fat wallet.

I've got 80K+ miles predominantly in my DP-tuner 80E program with no problems whatsoever.

I've seen all sort of mechanical things have come-aparts for seemingly no reason whatsoever and it takes a trained investigator to identify the exact cause(s) of the failure. I know of no one claiming to have blown their engines using Jody's tuning to have ever submitted their engine for a complete failure analysis.

Until such time as that occurs, all else is pure speculation.
