    I would suggest more file official complaints to force their hand to do something about the changes after the AEM updates. My acceleration has become so bad its a huge safety hazard to drive and try to merge as I had to pull to the side of the road many times because of it.
    Just filed a complaint. This is going to be interesting...

    I Filed a complaint with FCA after a month they closed it and said they were aware of the problem. Needless to say I am very unhappy. So I told them to put in an email they were aware of the problem and had no plans of doing anything about it. So my case manager did. I the forwarded all that to the NHTSA and opened a complaint with them. We will see where this goes. That was last Friday

    Ahhhh, really! Then can you explain the $900 debit not my account took to install this so called endorsement? Why should anyone have to shell out a butt load of money to get their truck running the way it's supposed to? I resisted spending anything for as long as I could, even looking at the Duramax HD, but it was fiscally easier to install both tunes than trade in a truck. So far I'm extremely happy with the results. So until you've had the opportunity to test out SKT tuning software, acknowledge that GDE doesn't have a monopoly on Ecodiesle tunes.

    Good question...I would have to direct that to SKT. The transmission tune I have on my laptop. The ECU tune is uploaded to the server so I couldn't save it to file. It resides in his server so I can request the original tune and it will be available within a day. Not sure if there's a charge for it.

    First off....so I am not accused of being a SK shill I purchased GDE. But I do think that if SK works well it sure is a good buy. I noticed over the 4th of July SF had a 20% discount, that would put the cost of the ECM and TCM tune combo at about $720.00.

    Jimmy told me there is no charge for restoring am ECM tune on file.
    There is no charge when Jimmy updates an ECM tune (another great service).
    The $50.00 charge applies to an AEM update tune or to restore when a dealer flashes over your SFT ECM tune.

    If you let a dealer flash over the TCM tune it bricks the device and costs $150.00 and a send to Italy to get it restored.

    Just got back from my first drive with GDE installed. Went with a completely basic hot tune, and honestly this is how the truck should drive. Nothing over the top, good smooth power, lag is gone. Hopefully get my mpg back and the EGR garbage is off. Emissions compliant tune is awesome.

    Which tune are you referring to? You surely don’t think programming that deactivates the EGR valve is emission compliant.

    I am not bashing tuning at all. I do believe it is necessary to keep this truck running well for a long time. But let’s take it for what it is, an emissions defeat device....

    My truck was reprogrammed two days ago. I picked it up at 7am. Upon starting it and driving away, the throttle response was noticeably lagging.... I mean it was horrible to the point of dangerous, leaving me in an intersection for too long.

    But, once the truck was fully warmed up, it improved dramatically. Warmed up, I actually didn't notice any difference.

    Filing a complaint with FCA is useless. Call Lieff-Cabraser. They are the law firm handling the issues we are all having. They are NOT FCA's law firm. They keep in touch with the DOJ on this situation.They have a ton of complaints from us and the similiar problems we are all having. They need all the info they can get to get this straightened out for us. I don't even like driving mine anymore. However the poor performance makes my 6.0 powerstroke feel like a McLaren
