  1. Has anyone done this? I have a '00 24v and I'd like to have a manual lockup, so I can lock it in 2nd as well! So I don't have to come screaming up all the hills in my area, sounding like I'm doing 120mph Pros, cons, and whatnot.
  2. Not to rub it in, but I can tell we have it nice here in Norway, and I feel kinda sorry for you guys overseas. I like to complain about high taxes, but damn it's worth it if you ever get sick or anything that requires medical attention, free healthcare and all that. @Mopar1973Man I wish you all the best, but you only get one body, take it easy and work at a pace which your body allows you to.
  3. The revo settings change the duration though, if I read into it correctly. This is why I'm getting a Quad in the near future
  4. not many other names that fit the spelling
  5. No there's not many 2nd gens around these parts, more 3rd gens. Don't think you got that name right though, I give you 10/10 for effort though, since I probably get what you meant
  6. See any more what now? I'm not all that on slang knowledge
  7. Went out and bought the girl some new shoes today, I'm completely in love with the look and the fitment, came out extremely nice! Sits about flush with the flares all around
  8. Does anyone know of a good and "reliable", for lack of a better word, VIN decoder for the Dodges? I'd like to see how my truck was configured when it was new, back in the day.
  9. Yeah that's just one of the downsides of the smarty. I've shot an email to Diesel Performance Converters, to get a new converter and prepare my truck for the Quadzilla. I've had it with the Smarty
  10. My man, this article should be pinned somewhere, great writeup! If anything, the conclusion we can draw from this thread is this: Smarty probably works, somehow, with a stock truck. Not really recommended though, so just get a Quadzilla to be sure.
  11. Very much appreciated; great article as it sheds some light on a tuner with surprisingly little research into it, despite being so common.
  12. But I'm going to shell out whatever a Quad costs. It's definitely the way to go.
  13. Aha! You see I'm getting a Quad, there's no doubt about that, but it'll be later this year as I just blew $2600 on new wheels and tires Until then, I'd love to know what the smarty is up to, especially with the timing now that I've got somewhat control of the fuelling. This, because I don't have upgraded studs as far as I know, and y'all have me worried that the OEM ones will suddenly stretch and cause me a real headache.
  14. I read up on it real quick, it's controlled by an internal timing piston coupled to a cam ring inside the pump, where the piston is moved by fuel pressure, and the amount of pressure in the piston assembly is then again controlled by an internal pump & solenoid. I'd assume this is what the Smarty fiddles with, but as I'm saying, I can't hear any difference, I've seen @Me78569's logs, and they state that it definitely fiddles with the timing. To me, it looks like it does so, extremely harsh, and just about immediately commands about 18* of timing the very instant you touch the throttle, sure, you're going to need some extra time to burn all the fuel the smarty throws at it, but to me it sounds like it would be really rough and not so good. Me and my dad once reflashed a 3500 with the common rail 5.9 (If my memory serves me right) because it ran like crap, the owner had a Smarty S-06 which we then connected and tried out, it did NOT like ANY of the tunes with the added timing, it ran like crap with those tunes and rattled so bad you could mistake it for running on gravel rather than diesel. Ran good with any other tune, but it definitely didn't enjoy any added timing by the Smarty. Shame I don't have the datalogger handy, I'd like to find out how the different timing levels behave, since it now fuels more naturally relative to the throttle position, it would be nice to find a setting where it just doesn't instantly bump the timing to 18*, but start at maybe 12 or 14* and work it's way up from there.
