    GDE Questions (2018 - 3.0 - 1500)

    Sorry for my ignorance, but I am just learning about these software tuners.
    I have a 2018 1500 with the 3.0 Ecodiesel just approaching 7K miles and I am considering ordering the GDE Hot Tune, but looking at the options page, I didn't see where the EGR is deleted? Does the GDE automatically turn off (delete) the EGR or is that another program? I keep reading about deleting the EGR with the GDE??
    Also, I see the transmission Tune and was wondering where that "box" is to replace, or is it built into the main module?
    Thanks in advance

    The GDE hot tune electronically closes off the EGR. If you are going to tow, be sure to add the turbo brake option. The trans tune is done thru a hand held unit that plugs into the OBD2 port of your vehicle.
