Soon to be released is the aFe POWER Scorcher Tuner Module for the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel. Features include a Tri-Mode Toggle Switch enabling the Module to be set in 1 of 3 modes:
Stock – Factory Tune – No Adjustments
Stage 1 – Increased Power from Fuel Pressure Adjustments
Stage 2 – Maximum Power – Additional Boost and Fuel Pressure
Power and torque delivery are noticeable, and great care was taken for vehicle drivability, with improved throttle response and turbo spool.
A blue LED indicates the unit is on and working, and Velcro tape will be included to allow for easy installation and removal for placement among any flat surface. A perfect mounting solution is on the heat shield of the aFe Stage 2 Intake System, which is a perfect pairing for this Scorcher Module. A package will be available for additional savings.
Many enthusiasts have stated they would prefer to remove the module for servicing at the dealership, and aFe has made this extremely convenient with the use of a terminated wiring harness, allowing you to install onto the connectors at the back of the engine once, and connecting the module to the harness on the other end, all utilizing plug and play connectors. This works like factory, without having to crimp or splice any wires, and is completely removable.
aFe has thought of everything, including providing a bypass connector to cap off the harness when you remove the tuner, making the swap extremely easy to do, just seconds versus having to mess with the sensor connectors in the back. When you want to remove the unit, simply unplug the module, remove it via the Velcro strip, plug the bypass connector in, and tuck the wires. The module leaves no digital footprint in the ECU, and is undetectable by dealerships. This unit works well with even the latest RAM ECU updates, with no issues during testing.
Expected release of the aFe POWER Scorcher Tuning Module is May 1st.
