I drive a 2015 lifted Bighorn 4x4 with every option. I have owned every make of 4x4 truck and put aftermarket upgrades on them all, yet I’ve gotten more compliments on this truck than any of the others. I loved the look and feel of the truck, but I got check engine lights every other week it seemed like. When there weren’t CEL’s coming on, there were factory recalls in the mail and I was getting to the point where I was ready to sell it, even if I was going to lose money on the deal. Then I took the truck in to get “the emissions flash” and it went from being slightly underpowered to embarrassingly underpowered. It felt like there was a sponge on the throttle because you kept pressing on it but nothing happened. What a joke! So I read the GDE reviews, ordered the tune and installed an S&B cold air intake. It is the absolute best upgrade I have ever made to a truck! So much more responsive, you get into the turbo so much quicker, my average fuel mileage goes up every time it leaves the driveway. I actually look forward to driving the truck or pulling the boat because the truck now performs the way it should. Not a single CEL since the install. Thanks GDE

Installed the GDE tune in mid June. Noticed immediately the increase in throttle response and power. I use a Blue Driver scan tool that I leave plugged in full time to monitor egt, regen, DPF filter % etc. the regen interval is now more than 2 weeks compared to about every 2 to 3 days in my normal commute. I just returned from a 3100 mile trip where I averaged 80 to 85 mph cross country and averaged 28.4 mpg for the entire trip. That’s loaded with 4 adults and the bed stuffed full with luggage under a vinyl bed cover. Really impressed with the highway passing power!

After having the emissions recall completed (and the Hot Tune overwritten), and driving the truck for less than 24 hours, I told my wife "If this truck had driven this way for the 3+ years I've owned it, I would not still own it!" Swapped the ECM that evening, in about 20 minutes, and it's right back to the way it should be. If you are still driving a stock Ecodiesel, do yourself a favor and get this tune--it is worth every single penny.

If you haven't had this tune, what are you waiting for??? I've had my 2016 tuned for more than 2 years now and the hot tune really makes the truck a joy to drive. I tow a lot and even with around 7000 lbs of camper and gear, I have never had issues with power, even over the mountains. I taken several trips of more than 1000 miles and never got less than 17.5mpg even with all the weight behind me. Unloaded, no problem getting 29-30 mpg on the highway. Recently had the engine "detuned" with the V08 recall. WOW, the lack of power, responsiveness and turbo lag was obscene. It's really hard to believe the amount life they choke out of this little engine. Couldn't wait to bring the engine back to life! Ordered the tuned ECM (only $50 net cost + shipping) for the core exchange, once you are a customer, so I wouldn't have to go more than a day or 2 without a hot tune. The difference is night & day. The engine is back to power, fuel efficiency and no more turbo lag, press the pedal and it goes! If you still have a stock tune, the EGR system will kill this engine. The tune bypasses it all together. In the long run, not using the EGR will greatly increase the life of the engine and better for the environment, not having to burn all that extra fuel. If you own a ecodiesel, your gonna get 3g's for the recall. Spend that $$ on something truly worth the $$$. You're crazy if you haven't yet! These guys truly their Sh!t and provide a great service!

Noticeable difference in power and fuel efficiency. Yes it is worth it in my opinion. 2018 eco diesel 4x4 3.55 gear.

by David Morrow Thursday 6 June 2019

I don't have much additional to say other than this tune along with the trans tune makes my truck drive the way it should have from the factory. The recent emissions recall was a disaster in terms of drivability and this tune fixes that. Plus, now I can back up with my door open.
