    Based on the experiences reported here by various members who ultimately forced a buy back via a lemon law, I wouldn't touch one no matter how low the price went. Typically the lemons were in the...

    If you have a way to monitor the soot level (Edge CTS, Torque app, etc.), I would make a note of what % your GDE ECM is reading before swapping in the stock ECM. Then when it's time to swap back to...

    Proof it's never too late to get the GDE hot tune. 70K doesn't seem that high for getting the tune when you have 200K on it.

    Ha ha. So glad you're still on this forum, Captain, because you didn't bite on that Cummins with the manual transmission a while back. :o

    Yeah the 2017's I was thinking of were also at fairly low mileage. It seems the ones that fail so soon are factory defects that inevitably fail.

    I do wonder how much good the "intentional lag" is doing, though. I have seen 2017 engine failures reported here.

    I believe there was a 15% off coupon that came out last fall - October I think it was. That was the first time I had seen a sale like that, so I jumped on it. Still wish I had done it sooner,...

    Fuel related problems aren't usually covered under warranty anyway. In other words if you're using a genuine MOPAR filter, and it's not able to filter bad fuel well enough to avoid a problem, good...

    2014 model here as well and still on the original battery. Bought mine in late 2014, so I figure I can add at least 6 months to whenever you replace yours, ha ha. Well, maybe not because mine has to...

    The above describes my experience. I ran the stock ECM for several weeks after the AEM. My wife even took it on a long road trip with the kids. She's the world's most impatient person, so I would...

    Thanks for the report. Given I didn't file a claim until June 11th it sounds like it will be a while before I get the letter.

    The dealer that did the AEM update on my truck called a week or 2 afterward and said they had forgotten to take a picture of the sticker under the hood. They didn't say anything about a re-scan or...

    Yep, GDE makes a big difference. I saw 99 miles average when I had the stock ECM in there for several weeks after the AEM update. Put the GDE ECM back om last weekend, and it shows 779 miles. Again,...

    No wonder they extended the warranty on the emissions gear. But seriously that's the first post I've seen with a problem like that. One thing I noticed after running the AEM for over a month was my...

    I ran the AEM tune for over a month before switching back to the GDE tuned ECM. One could hardly tell any difference cold or warm. I knew I was going back to GDE so didn't look at mileage very...

    My tune is less than a year old, so I decided not to go that route. Yesterday I checked the "soot %" with Torque, and it was at 64%. Today I took the truck for a spin and ran it through a regen. By...

    Unfortunately that's the only number on my invoice that has anything to do with the AEM update, and there's definitely no number close to the one above. Hmm, maybe the flash version is on the...

    Nope. I still have the stock ECM, so I can put it back in any time. Also as Bounty Hunter said it's not easily detectable.

    Thanks for posting this. I had failed to back up my settings before a phone mishap, so this saved me the trouble of re-doing all the custom PIDs. Also you crammed more on one screen than I did, and I...

    It seems if I wait until right after a regen, then swap, the worst case is the GDE tuned ECM does the burn-off very early because it's memory says it's close to a regen. That seems no worse than...

    Got the AEM over a month ago, so I have put some miles on the original ECM. When I switch back to the ECM with the GDE tune should I just follow the same procedure that I used when I first got the...
