50 State Street Legal :Thumbup: C.A.R.B. EO number pending. No smoke equals a happy DPF!

I like emissions legal tunes anyway. Nice work! 60+ at the rear wheels and legal is nothing to sneeze at.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if the tune made the engine smoke the dpf would collect the soot (smoke) to burn it off later.. I have a hard time believing that the tune does not cause smoke, you just cannot see it because of the emissions junk. To me this translates into more soot to collect in the dpf, which in turn will cause more regens and possible lower mpg.:damnit

Most guys should be looking for emissions legal upgrades for there 07 trucks,and they have it.Turbos and such will not be emissions legal.DOT and snap idle tests need to be passed for the working trucks and chassis cabs.

Dirtmovr,

That is not the case with our tuning; you can look at none DPF trucks with Hypertech tuning and see that they don’t smoke. Making clean tunes isn’t something new for Hypertech it’s the way we’ve been doing things since the mid 90’s when we started tuning diesels. Now that isn’t to say that we didn’t have to spend time learning the DPF and how it affects things. There was a lot of time spent developing and testing the tunes for the 6.7s. Being that this is the 6.7 forum I’m sure most of you guys know that there are three configurations of the new Cummins. To ensure we had you guys covered we went out and bought 3 trucks.

Now you are correct in your assumption that the DPF would hide a dirty tune long enough for a video to be shot. However if a company as large as Hypertech started doing things like that it wouldn’t take long for it to come to light especially in the day and age of the internet. I mean even as it stands now the Max Energy and the Max Energy ECON are backed by 30 day money back guarantees.

You must be right they`re is no miracle to do here!!! I think it`s right unless someone proves it is`nt!!! The last thing I want is more regens !:iagree
