    - "We learned that you have the GDE tune installed".

    If you're going to quote something like that, expect people to question it. One moment the dealer, in "quotations" specified GDE tune, but the next response you said there was no mention of GDE specifically. Because of this, we question many other aspects of this visit and what was actually communicated between your "friend" and the service advisor/manager.

    Gee. Again found out I am an idiot. Of course I knew that many, many years ago.

    My Green Diesel Engineering sticker has been prominently posted on the side of my truck for years. Many times I took it to the dealer early on with that sticker. Told the service adviser about it. Everyone at the dealership seemed to know how clean it made the engine run. They literally all liked it. Never had a hint of an issue that was anything but positive.

    Always thought the real idiots were the ones operating an Ecodiesel without GDE.

    Just look on the side window of the cap - GDE. The "idiot" is below that in the picture.

    The tune might not be detectable via software version in the ecm. But egr staying at 0 percent is a dead give away. Like I said before its not rocket science for the dealer to find a tune. My spare factory ecm is not a paper weight like I thought before.. Its going to come handy when Canadian dealers catch up to the US crowd.

    There are several operating conditions in stock tuning where egr is off, so that would not be a solid giveaway. We are hoping folks don't need to flash back to stock before recall...that would be a lot of unexpected work.

    GDE. The comparison and timing is scary. Think of it as your Boeing and those that installed your tune are the airlines with max 8s.

    What are the most like scenarios that they could detect a tune? EGR? Data logger comparing mileage to some basic factor like mileage or hours.

    These guys are relying on you for guidance.

    As Trump said. Figure it out quick.

    I never took you for the sensitive type. You must be a big 'ol Teddy Bear lol.

    Not all dealers are tune friendly. Unless you know they're okay with the tune in advance, you would be an idiot to advertise.

    You are joking right? Boeing has some computer code that might get confused and thinks the plane is stalling. This has killed over 300 people. Don't make light of real problems.

    We will not know what FCA is doing until the recall is released in early June. Our recommendation to GDE customers is wait 2-3 months after the recall is released before scheduling anything with dealer. That will afford us time to see what they are doing.

    Hi: Captainmal... Nice shot!!! Idiot here, no God Dam Enviroment evade yet. My kids say I'm not able to tie my own shoes either!!! Just about ready to change the oil again. I have 2/ 5L jugs of Rotella T6/ 5W 40 Synthetic so I can't be that "Squirrelly" and I don't want to test the Ontario Guv. over air quality either.
    Great trip to Florida but the last 2 1/2 hrs turned to 3 1/2 due to fierce headwinds/ driving rain, and running 6th. gear to buck them.

    I had a $39 code reader sitting in the console. Service manager thought it was a tuner.
