It's Time To Get The Most Out Of Your Cummins

A simple tune can dramatically change the dynamic of your truck in many ways!


The Cummins has gone through so many adjustments to help benefit the truck with each new generation introduced.  We've seen convenience and comfort get pushed along too, it's all apart of getting the owner to love what they drive.  The thing truck owners love the most is how much more horsepower and torque get updated in addition to body styles and interior.  In the late 80's the 12 valve was pushing a mere 160 RWHP out of the factory.  Look at where we are at now, the CME (2013-2018) is now putting down between 350-370 RWHP depending on transmission.  That's a huge difference in the matter of a few decades.  This is amazing to see, but it doesn't mean that they've gotten all out of your truck.  As we've seen numerous times, there's always room for improvement and performance no matter which year Cummins you drive.  


Let's look at some of the benefits of tuning your 2010-2019 Cummins below:

2011 - 2016 LML Duramax 520 RWHP Tune Only!

520 RWHP TUNE ONLY LML DURAMAX:

The 2011 - 2016 LML Duramax came rated at 395 horse power and 765 ft/lbs of torque.  That seemed like an amazing amount of power when this model was first released but these days it is dwarfed by the available power of brand new trucks.  

Furthermore that whopping 395 HP is a peak power rating, meaning that you probably wont produce that much power during normal operations.  In fact many owners complain that the power delivery of the stock tune is too soft.  This is why custom tuning is so important for the LML Duramax.  

Here are some of the things tuning your LML can help with:

  • Increased Peak Horse Power
  • Improved Shift Quality
  • LML Dead Pedal Resolution

Don't Delete Your Powerstroke's DPF!!!

[fa icon="calendar'] Nov 30, 2018 2:14:48 PM / by Justin Tyson posted in Power Stroke, Ford 6.7, DPF ON, DPF Delete

We've all heard from forums and numerous outlets that deleting your DPF system is the way to go these days. What we never seen backing these claims is data and tests. It's always hearsay and misnomers that seem to find it's way to fueling the debate on whether to delete or keep your emissions intact.  Well as you probably know, we like to take these tales and try to figure out for ourselves what is the truth behind what to do with the factory emissions.

The 6.7L Ford in its factory trim represents a significant improvement in technology over the previous generations of the Powerstroke.  Coupled with the 6R140 transmission, this power train a lot of offer in reliability, drive-ability and performance.  Over the past year, we at CPS have worked with our customers and in-house on our own test trucks to develop and test tuning for this platform.  After hundreds of revisions, we're happy to announce we have a product that significantly outperforms the factory 6.7L/6R140 calibration in power and drive-ability, while maintaining factory operation and service intervals of the emissions control system.

Ever wonder what you need to push your stock truck to its limit?  We know the answer, and we created this article for you.  For 600-640 RWHP you will need to keep in mind all the supporting modifications you need to maintain reliability.   

Custom tuning is going to ask your truck to perform at a higher level.  The same goes for upgrading your turbo, transmission, fuel system or any other performance orientate component.  The best way to maintain a moderate level of reliability while upgrading is to address these issues once and do it right!

Here is the list of what you need to make a reliable 600+ RWHP LML with a DPF still on it:

  • EZ Lynk AutoAgent 2.0 w/ Support Pack & LSP5 Switch
  • LML Stealth 64 Turbo
  • 10mm Cp4 Exergy Stroker Pump
  • DT550 Built Transmission
  • S&B Intake
  • Tie Rod Sleeves
  • Traction Bars
  • Fass 165 Lift Pump
  • Beans Fuel Tank Sump Kit
