Jimmy, what's the regen frequency you've seen in your testing?
Sft has not proven anything yet but keep trying.
I'm not entirely sure that's accurate.A lot of owners still have warranty and don't want to forfeit it by tuning via OBD2 as it's easily detectable at the dealer level.
When fca flashes a vehicle it is reported and the flash count is wiped you need to research more before you claim false info.I'm not entirely sure that's accurate.
For example, let's say you get periodic updates from the dealer. Three ECU flashes later and you WILL have a flash count, yes? Now what if you get flashed by GDE now your flash count is 0. That is suspicious. Not to mention the ECU will have characteristics other than stock.
At SFT we flash you back to stock, sure the count has now gone up 2 (tune & stock flashes). However per the FCA guidance (tech shared this info, I read it with them). "Over 3 is reportable " so a flash count with a deviation of 4 or more will be reported.
Both have their pros and cons. But to claim "OBD2 is easily detectable at the dealer level" is false. The binary data is written back to the ECU with 0 trace of altered data (only flash count goes up).
Yes your tune uses a different logic strategy than gde, why is that? Gde credibility is proven and you well do nothing but destroy your self trying to disprove them. Im not trying to destroy you or even drag you down but your advertising is hurting yourself more than helping.View attachment 79908
Here you see Keith admitting that SFT tunes are NOT related to GDE whatsoever.
This proves that the Keith lied when he said "Jimmy McKeown has started stealing the GDE engine tune recently now that OBD read/write is functional." is 100% a lie. GDE credibility = 0. Why put down another company? If they lie about this, what else?

GDE documented engineered results VS Sft exhibiting roid rage, Napoleonic Overcompensation Complex, and Medicine Man MarketingIf I was going to buy a tune I'd buy it from people who boost the product and advertise how good their product is. I get wary when I see sellers who use 'sensation" and unrelated self promotion to move a product.
1) sensation : "https://www.so****ingtuned.com/about.html#/"
If I saw the website for "So F*****g Tuned" or "Green Diesel Engineering", which one says "we do diesel tuning" ??
2) unrelated self promotion : "**U.S. Combat Veteran Owned and Operated**"
Without disparaging veterans ..... there is no technical connection between veterans and engine tunes. When I see things like this I wonder "why" this person feels the need to boost themselves this way. Is it to make up for some deficiency in the product and encourage patriotic sympathy to make up for it?
SFT's entire approach turns me off.
... just my $0.05
My Thoughts exactly. I am happy to take the $3000 and the warranty, get the GDE Tune on a separate ECU from Co-Parts, and then IF I have an issue, I can swap the ECU out for warranty work. .I think everyone is a bit harsh on SFT. So the guy doesn't know how to market, that doesn't mean his tune isn't legit. I'd be willing to try it, BUT my big hang-up is that 48k mi warranty they're issuing me for the AEM. My truck has 160k miles and in my heart of hearts, I KNOW something is going to fail in that time. So having that warranty is key. I'm not sure if either of the tunes will allow me to keep that warrantly w/o getting another ECU, as if I take it in for work, they'll overwrite the GDE tune. If I go SFT, they'll know it's tuned due to the flash count and I may lose the warranty altogether at the time I need it most. At least with GDE, I know I can get it REtuned by them for only $50, so that puts them ahead (given the tunes are similar). Maybe I should just get another ECU and flash it and put the stock one in when I need warranty work.
What if I told you I had warranty work completed several times with a GDE ECM installed? Having an extra ECM is unnecessary.My Thoughts exactly. I am happy to take the $3000 and the warranty, get the GDE Tune on a separate ECU from Co-Parts, and then IF I have an issue, I can swap the ECU out for warranty work. .
