Good info. Is this something that any competent diesel mechanic should be able to do?

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

Hello Guys,

I made a couple of calls today regarding products to do deletes on our Eco's.

I called Shibby Engineering and XDP they have no products as of today for our Eco's, they are to new here in the USA.

I will continue my search and put post them here in this thread.

Competent - yes. As with anything, there is a wrong and right way to do it.

You could call bg products and ask for a shop that they would recommend.


No idling, yearly egr and intake cleaning service , I recommend oil changes at 5,000 miles. I don't care if the factory recommends 10,15k services. They don't pay your repair bills at 100k miles when it needs a new turbo due to soot build up...

Fresh oil soaks up carbon and contaminants.

First mod

Removed the mufflers and replaced with straight pipe and new tips

No sound difference.

Maybe minor performance or just harder driving.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

On our 06 Silverado with the LBZ engine we got a EGR Blocker plate and
a resistor pack that was plug and play to eliminate all code issues that could
happen.

Got it from Kennedy Diesel , maybe he is the guy to talk to.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

A colleague at work recently removed the DPF and deleted the DEF on his 2012 Dodge 2500. Replaced the DPF with straight pipe and deleted the codes. The difference in performance is quite marked but the big thing is that the oil is still very clean after 2000k.
I really want to do this to my JGC.

Pete

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

Me too....although, with my driving habits, I have no issues. Better mileage and performance are always good. Soot on the rear of the vehicle is the only downside I can see.

Step 1: tap into the back pressure sensors and determine their signal levels.

Step 2: design a device that replicates these signals...a "fooler"

Step 3: Install the foolers and operate for a few days AFTER a DPF regen cycle. Reconnect, regen, repeat.

Step 4: if no codes, gut the DPF or remove and enjoy.

Sounds good and thanks for that.

I have a 2013 JGC and in 14,000k have not seen a regen signal. Maybe it does not have that display in mine.

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

I have tuned my ecodiesel with Celtic Tuning. The tune is awesome. It has a very noticeable difference in power.

PM me if you're interested in a tune.


I do not recommend removing the DPF filter. The DPF filter is very close to the firewall and is a double walled pipe. I want to do some more research before I give the go-ahead.

Our shops been busy so I have not had a whole lot of time to play with the Jeep. Customers come first

Re: Tuning your EcoDiesel

Celtic tuning offer a DPF and EGR removal service with their tunes for JGC in the UK. Surely you can ask them for some help?
Also, what about just gutting the DPF? That way you still retain the double walled pipe and stock fitment no?
Also, why would it matter if the DPF is close to the firewall? That would only matter when it does a regen no? And if you disable that there's no problem.
