mray Welcome to the DF, nice truck!

Forsakenmilitia The truck was tuned by Ryan's Diesel Service in North Prairie, WI and I at long last know exactly what tunes I have!

They are:

1-stock
2-30 hp
3-60 hp
4-100 hp
5-150 hp

I still have a few problems to sort out with the truck but I at least know where the source of my leaks are now, there are two bolts that are leaking coolant that was running down the side of the trans. I tried tightening the bolts and it looks like one has stopped leaking all together but I can't get the other to stop but I'm hesitant to try and tighten it further. At the very least I've got the leak slowed down until it gets dropped off to be repaired on the 3rd. Anyway, thanks for the welcomes to the site!

From what I can tell these may be my tunes:

1-stockish
2-no idea, maybe a towing tune
3-hp tune of some sort I think
4-definitely an hp tune
5-also an hp tune

I messed with all five tunes the day after I got it and have kept it on 1 since then. I'm dropping off the truck tomorrow to get the leak figured out so now I just have to hope that it isn't something really expensive and will be fixed quickly. Aside from the leak I'm loving the truck, I love my 06 but the Duramax will be able to do anything and everything I could ever need it to do. I'm also happy that I don't appear to have a smoke tune, I liked those when I was younger but I don't really care for them these days.
Let us know what they are when you find out, and who is the tuner?

407driver This thread will have some information you may be interested in:

In addition, do you know what tune/s the EFI live has in your truck? If the answer is no Id try and find out who the previous owner is and get that information. If you cannot, then my advice is to get tuning from a reputable tuner.

If the tuning is too hot for what you use the truck for you can hurt your transmission very badly with a tune that is too hot. Just MYHO.
