    Looking for a tune

    Is anyone still active that is tuning for a 2003.5 HO 5.9 with an NV5600?

    Looking for a small HP or a tow tune to use as a comparison to what I'm working towards.

    TIA

    Add in 20-30% fuel map and run around 24Deg timing at the top. Normally hyped up trucks go as far at 32-38Deg timing. the 20's is a safe start.
    You may need to pull Current(amps) from the FCA if you see rail pressure dropping on the logs.

    Here are 2 that I downloaded from here a few years back...
    Mine is an Auto so I'm not sure these will work (I think they will as I believe the TCM is stand along)...

    Anyway you can compare these to a stock read and get an idea what has been done

    Where did you download these files from? When I look in the tune repository there's only like a handful of tunes in there and most of them are stock.

    Oh, that's weird. I can't find any with the search tool. I was trying to find the ones link in this thread so I could read what they were intended to be doing.

    I believe I PM'ed you about a week ago to ask whether you're still tuning transmissions. Not sure if you saw that message. I appreciate your time.

    I tried to find the original threads but I could not...
    Its very possible I found them on Cummins forum but all my subscribed threads are gone (I did let my membership expire)

    If you compare the 2 to the stock read I posted you can see what was done
    They were threads just like yours, wanting a safe power increase
