    Took the Plunge GDE Tune

    Well I just ordered the GDE tune and engine brake option tonight. The truck has 1171 miles on it and two fill-ups but after reading about all the satisfied GDE tune customers and no regrets I took the plunge. I also decided to keep the factory ECM. I need to name this truck the BOAT Bring On Another Thousand. My next purchase will be running boards and mud flaps.

    GDE bombastic. I went with husky mud flaps so far love them. FYI only stop 2/3 the mud but worth it. No running boards getting nfab steps on mine. Waiting on custom front hammerhead bumper to arrive. So get front, rear and steps all sprayed with bedliner.

    I'd say this is being smart, not taking a plunge... Enjoy your awesome truck!

    More likely yes. And if you have issues, they'll work with you, and you'll end up passing them, trust me!

    GDE has posted few times stating it will still pass emissions tests.

    It will pass any state/territory emission testing. No issues.

    Speculation;
    If this tune passes any states emission test with EGR deactivated, why is it there in the first place?
