    Unhappy with Performance after Emissions Recall Update

    I've had my Sofa King tune for a few months now, it's far better than the original tune! You're going to love it.

    Unhappy with Performance after Emissions Recall Update

    I did my road trip "VEGAS BABIE" didn't notice a difference in fuel mileage. Its the same as the original FCA tune, city 19.0 - 19.3 mpg, highway 24 - 26 mpg the real difference is in performance Sofa King is far better than the original FCA tune. It will fix all the problems the FCA updated...

    Unhappy with Performance after Emissions Recall Update

    Remember you live in Calif. and can't do a lot of the after market goodies, unless you take them off each time you smog test. Getting your numbers to Sofa King is a bit challenging but once they have it they'll keep the original numbers (FCA update tune) and send you the new numbers when it...

    If I were you I would complete the emission update, collect the refund and go get it tuned. But it would leave you out of any further actions taken against FCA in this matter after signing the release from. I think there's more to come, these are just my though's.

    No DEF but have to keep fluid in there so the nozzles don't plug up. Was told I could use distilled water until my smog check and have to go back to all the smog goodies that make my truck run so well.

    I don't know about the other states but in Calif. I have to have my truck smog checked every other year. So I cannot change or remove anything smog related on the motor and my Sofa King Tune I'll have to remove put the FCA crappy update in for smog check. Then remove the FCA sh** and reinstall...

    Unhappy with Performance after Emissions Recall Update

    I'll file a complaint to, but what I hate more than anything about this whole mess is if FCA would have sold this truck with the way it runs after the updated emissions they would not have sold one truck. Its sad to think FCA excepts us ECO owners to take this laying down. I think we need to...

    Unfortunately I took my yellow lab and not my fishing pole. I can't fish with him as he spends the whole time in the creek going after my fly line. Yes I do like the way it shifts now, seems to hold the first three gears a bit longer when you take off, I'm sure its part of what makes my truck...

    Alright here's the fun part road trip this was only 102.2 miles. Not really far but enough to get a feel for how the truck is going to perform. This trip is to one of my fishing holes, it includes freeway about 60 miles, mountains about 30 miles and a little off road 4x4 maybe 12 miles. Before I...

    Unhappy with Performance after Emissions Recall Update

    Alright I've settled back down I hope. After talking to Jimmy at Sofa King he explained there are two different downloads one for the engine and one for the transmission. The transmission is a piece of cake the one for the engine is a bit more complicated, myself having no computer skills it...

    Unhappy with Performance after Emissions Recall Update

    I hate to be so dramatic but this will have to be done in three posts. First I received my Sofa King Tune did all the necessary steps and sent back my trucks numbers. Received my new numbers from Sofa King congratulating me that I have been Sofa King Tuned, I down loaded this back into my truck...
