Lol, I havent even had the jeep for a full 3 weeks yet!! But itll be on my list of things to get now. But it sounds like that wouldnt have done me any good anyway. Got a brief update this morning. Stopping by on the way home to see what we have. But I want to keep you guys on the edge of your seats. Heres a hint, I was off with my hopes of it being a simple reflash or disconnect the battery to reset.

Re: For those who are thinking about Bluespark...

What made you floor it in C9 after Excursion posted that going to C9 was what made his launch a code?

how long did it take you to get your controller from bluespark in Europe? How many miles did you have on the engine when you first installed in since you had your jeep less than 3 weeks when you started making your only 4 posts in this thread less than 3 weeks after you got your new diesel? Seems almost like you must have ordered your bluespark before you even got your jeep, lol.

I'm still on E9 and loving it. No problems. Have been using pro + boost unit for over 6 weeks. Haven't had a chance to do any 0- 100km runs yet.
Has anyone got any times yet?

E7 is the highest I can run without throwing a P072 "Bank 1 too rich" code. My motor is either calibrated richer or a sensor is off a bit. Either way, I am getting strong performance and good economy so I am happy.

1. You are kidding yourself. There are many ways they can tell. My coworker just failed a 6.7 Cummins and you should have seen all of the tests they did to it to verify that it had not been tuned. Right down to examining the carbon pattern on piston crowns. No joke. They take it seriously, as they should. If he had tuned his the failure would have cost him $15,000 in parts and labor.
2. If you've got the nards to put a tuner on it then you should have the nards to pay out of pocket for a failure related to the tuner. Its called being a man. Trying to undo the tuner and hide it is dishonest. People who try that never cease to amaze me. Its sad really. I'm glad the mfgs are finally finding ways to detect it.

Sounds like you believe everything anyone tells you... You sure they didn't bring in the NSA?

I really hope that you are not that naive to believe that BS about "examining the carbon patterns on the piston crowns". Ha ha ha!
Being a man means trying to extract all of the performance potential out of our engines in the stealthiest way possible and getting away with it.

Are you that na´ve to think that they have no way to tell that it's been "tuned?" Ha Ha Ha. Let's see. There is a maximum spec for boost pressure, turbine speed, turbine outlet temperature, NOx output, fuel consumption rate...... any one of those could be used as in indicator. I see it all the time as I work for a engine mfg of class 8 truck engines, some of which people "tune". We've been wise to that for at least a decade. We have failure analysis guys that are specifically trained to look for the signs. Now mfgs of automotive diesels are getting wise to it as well. As I said, the scrutiny my buddy's 6.7 was subjected to before Ram/Cummins honored the warranty claim was nothing less than amazing. Even though all the ECM tattletale indicators were in spec (because he never tuned it), the factory engineers STILL had the failed parts shipped to them and analyzed carefully before allowing the dealership to do anything. It took like four weeks to work thru it all. Thank goodness he had never tuned it or he would have been hosed big time.

Yep. Tuning stuff is cool. Man's genetic make-up means we get off on horsepower, fossil fuels, and speed. But blowing something up then lying about it to try to get somebody else to pay for it is not cool. Major man code violation if you ask me. You should know this!

Re: For those who are thinking about Bluespark...

I think the more important thing about this thread, since we can all make up our own minds about tuning, is that twcracing seems to have been a troll.
