Sorry not really bolt-on
EFI-LIVE sounds like it might be a decent solution for you. Depending on how comfortable you would be trying to have any warranty work done. There are some gray areas there.
I'm not sure if you've heard of efi-live before, it is a handheld device that you use in conjunction with a laptop to tune reflash or reprogram your ecm on your vehicle (also can change your TCM trans shift points and stuff). It's almost infinitely adjustable and works on the 6.6L Duramax and many other different gm vehicles.
I think the cost is 750. They use a license system and each vehicle will need one license to tune the ecm and tcm.
The V2 (name of the device) comes with 2 licenses already. Any extra's you would need would cost ya a 100 a piece. If a guy had a small fleet going this might work out pretty good.
Search around. Maybe check out the diesel place forum (duramax site) lots of efi-live info over there. Also check out there home page of course.
There are alot of possibilities with efi-live. I think you'd be interested in getting some milage tunes installed and maybe implementing your own top speed limiter for your driver's 70MPH?
And lets not forget the plain old fun factor for your personal rig :Thumbup:
I too have heard negative comments about oiled filters on our trucks. The new thing is the dry filters. After they get dirty you remove them and tap them to dislodge large contaminants and then to get them even cleaner you would use compressed air to blow them out from the inside (cleanside)
edit: I was also going to say that to protect your injectors I would also get some extra fuel filtration for your trucks. Stock filtration is pretty good, but I don't think anyone on this board will argue that more filtration is not a bad idea. Having the new filter in a more accessable location doesn't hurt either.
