Smarty MM3 Tuning Update!
We have been testing the new Smarty MM3 Tuning for the 1998.5 - 2016 Cummins. The software/hardware is the newest solution for custom tuning. Until now, the limited amount of accessible tables in the 1998.5-2002 tuning platforms made fine tuning challenging for highly modified Cummins trucks leaving them smokey, noisey, and generally not as smooth as other similarly modified trucks tuned with more advanced software. Now that we have access to said tables, we will be able to create clean, efficient power with these trucks.
One of the most exciting features to the new Smarty MM3 is Live Tuning. The live tuning ability allows our tuners to make real-time changes to the calibration on the dyno or during a road test where in the past we had to wait 7-12 minutes to implement one change. As you might imagine, live tuning will significantly shorten the developement cycle and allow us to quickly fine-tune a wide variety of modifications on-site at CPS. The second advantage to the live tuning software is the ability of the customer to change tunes (power levels etc.) on the fly on any of the supported platforms. These power levels will be supplied along with the base tune to customer at the time of sale (idealy).
Our discussion with the developers of this software/hardware package lead us to believe that improved scan tool functionality is next on the priority list. We would expect to see a very high sample rate scan tool along with several dozen of the most important PIDs in the near future for beta testing. This tool is critical to the development process. Without a strong scan tool we cannot validate our work, the better the tool - the better the final product and the better we can help our customers troubleshoot accurately if they need to.
Calibrated Power is excited to beta test a new tuning product for the 1998.5 - 2016 Cummins.
Tuning your 2010-2015 Cummins can dramatically improve your driving experience!
The Dodge/Ram/Cummins manufacturers have improved many factors that impact your driving experience throughout the years. From cup holders and radios and interior cab lights to heated seats, larger mirrors and automated turbine braking; Cummins trucks are getting better every year. Horsepower and Torque have not been missed in these constantly ongoing improvements. Back in in 1989 the first 12v had just a 160 RWHP rating from the factory, now the 6.7L as off 2010 is 350 - 370 Horsepower depending on transmission and trim package. With that being stated, there is still a lot of room for aftermarket tuning to improve your truck.
Below are 7 things you shoud know, before you decide which tuning is right for you . . . .
