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:

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.
