Re: Installed GDE tune... not really noticing a difference... anyone else?
Just installed mine a few days ago. Subjectively, I can feel the difference in the torque/power curves, but it's subtle. WOT is impressive, but I hardly ever ran the Jeep WOT before the swap, so it's hard for me to say there's a huge difference. Progression through the power curve seems to be smoother, but that may just be the placebo effect, like when you drop in an expensive aftermarket air filter ("Oooooooooohhhh...")
The biggest differences I note are the reduced turbo lag from a stop and the added engine braking, which are both sweeeeeeeet...
My DEF level indicator still hasn't settled down to the level shown before the swap: it went from about 1/4 tank to 2/3 tank after the swap; today it was reading about 2/5 tank...
I've only driven about 100 miles on it, but my EVIC is showing about 27.5 mpg mixed around town driving, where I normally average 24.5 - 26 mpg.
Picked up my travel trailer from the RV repair shop and there seemed to be more huevos in the pull, but I only went 3 miles, mostly flat. I'll find out more in 2 weeks when I have to tackle a couple of 7000 foot climbs in The Sierra.
So far, I'm likin' the change!
