Tuning can be a tricky business, and no one knows this better than EFI Live. That’s why they go above and beyond to help provide customers with the most up-to-date tools possible. They just so happened to be on hand at this year’s PRI 2016, so we stopped by to see what was upcoming and we didn’t walk away disappointed.
Guy Tripp, owner and operator of SoCal Diesel, conducted the session and had nothing but great things to say about EFI Live. “You probably won’t believe me, but EFI Live literally changed my life,” said Tripp. “It is hands down the best tuning tool I’ve ever used.”
High praises for EFI, but we’re sure you want to hear the goods. Tripp announced that the new controller for GM’s L5P—the 445 horsepower 910 lb-ft of torque Duramax diesel engine in the 2017 Silverado and Sierra—is currently receiving attention and should be available to the public soon. Again, not an easy task when you take into consideration that these days a lot of the General’s computers are protected by up to 256-bit encryption.
And if you’re a Dodge fan, they’ve got you covered too. With EFI Live’s Cummins Switchable Programming (CSP), you can log individual PIDs that you specify instead of using the groupings that Chrysler originally specified in the programming.
“Before, the Cummins computer would basically say ‘Hey, I can’t run the engine and output all these parameters at the same time,’” Tripp said. “EFI Live found a way of tricking the computer into outputting data that it normally doesn’t, or in groupings it typically doesn’t, and they are the only ones offering it right now.”
That means EFI Live is an indispensable tool when it comes to data logging and tuning your Dodge or GM diesel—since they are the only ones on the block offering the ability to do it. Stay tuned for more news from PRI and EFI Live in the coming months.
