You use your truck for daily commuting or hauling the family and trailer for a long weekend of camping,  you’re rolling up to your work or that campsite and you notice the LML go into regeneration (regen).  You can’t keep driving as you should because you got a job to do or things to unpack.  You can’t help but wonder what can be done to keep your LML from going into this cycle as often as it does, we’ll get into that in bit, first let’s look a little more at DPF regen. 

The DPF takes essentially 700 miles or 18 hours of drive time to put it to the maximum values of normal calculated mass soot levels, which if you were curious is 44 grams.   Active Regen describes the procedure your truck goes through to burn that accumulated soot.  To do this, fuel is dosed through a 9th injector directly into your exhaust.  Many drivers have noticed a drop in MPG and even potentially a lack of power during regen. 

Speak with a Diesel Performance Expert!

A popular theory is that if you go through regen less frequently, your MPGs will go up.  So, how can you go through less regens?

Do Your LML Tunes Protect You From High EGTs?

LML SPADE & Smart EGT Control:

Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGTs) give you an insight as to how much stress you are putting your engine under.  It is the most accurate way to monitor if your current activity is safe for the engine. 

In a factory tuned truck high EGTs would most commonly be a sign of a physical problem like a boost leak.  However, a tuner added to an aggressive driver could result in EGTs beyond the desired limit.  

Most examples of this also include a mismatch of your tune level and truck operation.  Such as the guy towing in his race tune.  

 

The LML SPADE by DuramaxTuner.com now includes a Smart EGT Control feature.

  • Let your tunes manage the EGTs so you can keep your eyes on the road
  • Have peace of mind that your truck is safe
  • Get the power you need from your truck without sacrificing reliability

What are some good upgrades if you are towing?

You bought your 2011 - 2016 Silverado HD with a Duramax to tow something with it.  It certainly is capable of performing well in completely stock trim.  Your truck has plenty of power to pull anything up to it's rated Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW), it stops well and the ride quality is superb. 

On the other hand, if you spend any length of time towing something you're bound to notice a few things that could be better. Furthermore, if you are towing for long distances, like a family vacation or for work, this LML Duramax engine has to be the most reliable vehicle you've ever owned.  

 

COMMON QUESTIONS LML OWNERS ASK:

  • What aftermarket products help with towing?
  • How can you improve MPG while towing?
  • Is the LML a reliable truck to tow something with?

5 Things You Probably Didn't Know About The 2011-2016 Duramax EGR

Some of you reading this are probably screaming at the computer already.  Mentioning EGR, or any emissions equipment tends to prompt that reaction.  Take a moment to read about how the EGR equipped on the 2011 - 2016 Duramax is NOT going to ruin your engine.  Afterwards, if you still want to send a letter about how terrible emissions equipment is, please address it to your local Congressman. 

Below you will find 5 things you probably didn't know about the EGR (exhaust gas re-circulation).  Including  how it is different than previous models, why it works well, and a few other note worthy facts.  

A few things you've heard people say about the EGR that are NOT true about the LML EGR system:

  • "The EGR will gum up and fail constantly"
  • "Deleting it will get you better fuel mileage."

STOP running your LML without a lift pump!

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 25, 2017 9:00:00 AM / by Paul Wilson posted in LML, LML Tuning, LML Power, LML Performance, Fass, Lift Pump

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments


Do you need a lift pump on your LML?

You should strongly consider a lift pump for your LML (2011-2016 Duramax).  Although there are many benefits a lift pump provides, your LML needs them for 2 main reasons, RELIABILITY & PERFORMANCE. 

First, we should clear a few things up before diving into this topic.

  • Lift Pump:  A low pressure pump that draws from the fuel tank and pushes it to the high pressure fuel pump.  LML's do not have a lift pump from the factory.  
  • CP4.2:  High pressure fuel pump equipped on the LML.  Mounted in the engine bay, directly feeds high pressure to the common rail and draws fuel from the tank. Commonly called the Cp4.
  • LML:  Short hand for Chevy and GMC 6.6L, V-8, turbocharged, Duramax engines available in the 2011 - 2016 HD trucks. 
  • Brands: DuramaxTuner.com is an Authorized Dealer for FASS.  For purpose of this article we are not going to split hairs over brands.  We certainly suggest doing your research for what is going to meet your needs the best.
