have you ever tuned a diesel , its not for beginners, i wouldn't suggest building your own tunes unless you a prepared to fry your $12,000 engine, get with one of the tuners on here first and learn about efi live from there

thats what i am saying , you can do it on your own and learn sure but one thing changed wrong and you could hurt the motor , do what you want just giving the best advice , i am learning it myself i have had it over a year and certainly don't want to tune myself , you would understand if you had it in front of you

you have to call one of the vendors or tuners on here and order it , you will also need a laptop with windows xp or something compatible with the efi live

the software is free you just buy the v2, and that will get you started. it comes with 2 ecm and 2 tcm licenses them most tuners will give you 2 free tunes of your choice
