Can anyone get me up and running with EFI. I have a PPE Economy Programmer but I wanna give this EFI a try. Dont like way truck runs and tows in number 2 setting. I want to be able to set cruise control when towing and still have enough power to tow were it isnt constantly revin up and down. Im gonna put a pyrometer in the truck and boost gauge. I want to get better mileage towing and daily driving also. My main goal is a little more economy when towing and driving. I like to kick it in the ass every once in a while and enjoy the power but for the most part this truck needs to be making me money so Im pretty gentile on her. I was refered to a fellow who could help me in western pa and after 3 calls and 3 messages and no call back Im moving on even if he does call me back. I got 33's on the truck but no other real modifications. If someone can sell me a tune and explain EFI to me Im pretty confident I can make it work. My time is money so I dont expect anyone to do anything for free but I believe EFI can accomplish my goals for me from what Ive been reading.

All three vendors mentioned are outstanding, the best of the best.

Idaho Rob from ATP
Justin Novak from Blue Demon
Nick from Duramaxtuner

They all have had great results and know what they are doing, all while standing behind their product 100%. You can't go wrong whichever option you go with them :thumb

What must you do to get a return phone call? Wish i could make a living not returning phone calls. 2 vendors and no call back... Hopefully 3rd time is a charm

How does this setup install in the Dmax? OBDII port with existing ECM?
As nvrvplzd said you get the SPADE with the tuning loaded and you simply plug into the OBD2 port and load the tunes. It is like using a handheld tuner. After you load the tuning you wire up your DSP5 switch and you are good to go.

I had a similar thing happen to me only it was via email. I couldn't call because of my work schedule and had my preferred vendor tell me that they would get me some quotes with different options for EFI. After a day or so I would email back and remind them and then they would apologize and say they would do it later. I did this 2 times and figured if they didn't want to take the time to email me a quote I'd go elsewhere. So I am.

Idk if now is a good time to get tunes since justin is so busy, I've been waiting over 2 weeks to get updated tunes sent to me that he said were done on the 5th?

^it's because the freakin techies over in the desert are fucking him out of internet. If he says the tunes are done, they are done, but you have to understand he's currently deployed in the desert....

So the Spade is like $700 and in addition you need to pay for a tune from the person designing it? And also you need the switch controller. Maybe I am way off but what does this run when all said and done? I have a Banks 6 gun w/ SL and it was free with the truck but if I switch to EFI I want to know a general cost ahead of time. Thanks!
