    Installed last Thursday,July 9. About 450 miles so far. EVIC keeps climbing, but will verify mileage when I fuel up. Can tell the difference with the cruise control. Throttle response under way is better as is passing power. I feel that the turbo lag from a standing stop is still there, maybe slightly less, not as significant. Truck is still quiet while under way, maybe slightly louder when at stopped idle.

    I'm curios to know how everyone has done the tune. Ecu swap mail in or keep original.

    Thanks

    Any particular reason you would buy it outright? Seems like a lot of money (650) to hold on to one that you would never use. Are you planning to switching back every time you bring it into ram for service?

    Buying the ECM is a very smart thing to do. If it fails, you still have the stock one. Also if there is an update, you can send the GDE in & keep running on the stock part.

    My question is (maybe this was answered somewhere else), if you put the stock ECM back in, can the dealer see that something has changed?

    Not trying to bust anyone's balls, but I though this thread was about those of us that have the tune and how things are working out?? There are plenty of other threads with questions, concerns, etc??

    Buy it outright if you get a cel with it then you switch it with factory ECU drive the truck let it give factory ECU cel then you go to dealer no problem the dealer will find n fix problem related to cel, if the problem is the ECU you send it back to GDE but most likely a 99 percent chance any cel will be related to def or something else not the GDE ECU, once everything is set up its plug n play .
