- Truck Year
Hello. New to the group but I've been reading many post. My 2014 ram 1500 ecodiesel is currently at the dealer getting a new intake manifold replaced due to faulty swirl valve. I assume due to all the soot problems. They also said I need to replace the ECM due to bank 1 faulty reading code (the o2 sensor was already replaced) My truck has 160,000 miles so I am not worried about warranty issues. I opted out of replacing the ECM with the idea that a GDE tune would be better at this point. I thought from the reading here that the GDE tunes bypass the egr. I contacted GDE and they stated that was illegal and thier product "does not" do this. Am I missing something? Did I ask them a question they felt was an EPA test? Would I be right to switch to the GDE tune at this point rather than a dealer installed ECM? Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.
