    Default Any Cummins support

    I have an 05 Dodge w/Cummins diesel. Any chance EFI Live will work for this application? If/when I buy it I plan on mainly using on my turbo LS1

    I'm sure Ross will answer and correct me if I am wrong but they have stated they have no plans on supporting the Bosch computer at this time. The '06 Duramax's use the Bosch computer system as does Dodge I beleive.

    Hmmm, that stinks. I'm really surprised though cause there is a huge a growing market for it. Guess I'll have to stick with my original idea by going with the TST box for it. Now I just need to find a second vehicle I can tune with the extra license

    No plans to do Dodge, to be honest I would not even know what ECM they use. Most gas Dodge ECM's are made by Motorola!.
    There is handhelds for these already right?, it will only be a matter of time before someone does a PC editor for them.........or, soon as they might say.

    Cheers,

    For tuning support please post your questions on this forum (or other auto forums).
    Sorry if I don't respond to your PM, don't take it personal.

    I actually didin't care for the interior on any of the GM's plus the Cummins has more power than any of the Duramaxes. I've got 14k on it now and I'm getting 22-23mpg highway. I've yet to hear of a Duramax getting that

    Oddly enough, one of the major complaints on the Dodge Cummins sites is poor fuel economy on the latest common rail engines. Congrats! You apparently got a special one. The manual trans Dmaxes have reported similiar mileage to yours in unladen freeway trim on stock tires, but more realistically, 19mpg hwy with the automatics is fairly common.

    As far as a stock Cummins having more power than the Dmax? Drive an 06 Dmax and get back with us.

    Back to the subject, you will need to talk to the Dodge guys about getting programming ability. The Fords have the SCT, and the Dmaxes now have EFILive, I'm sure someone in the Dodge inner circles is working on it.

    Good luck!

    I saw an advertisement for HPtuner stating they have tuning software available for Mopars, not sure if that includes the Cummins. I also heard SCT is working on Mopar tuning software.
