Hey all,

I recently had my 2015 EcoDiesel Overland that was GDE Hot Tuned totaled in an accident (thankfully, not my fault!). Last weekend I picked up a 2014 Summit EcoDiesel that is completely stock with 80k miles. It runs well but without my GDE tune on it, I can really tell a difference..

I am looking to do a full DPF, EGR, etc. delete and tune this time around and have looked at SFT, HD Diesel, and also have contacted a few tuning shops in southern Louisiana with no luck yet, but they are "looking into what they can do for the Jeep EcoDiesel".. which scares me a bit. I am located near Houston, TX for reference - and am willing to drive (see below plz).

I am more than comfortable doing the Stage 1 ECM flash work, that is easy for me to follow some steps and remove a few screws etc... I did it with my last Jeep no problem. However, I am looking over install instructions for the EGR delete kit from HD Diesel, plus some threads on the DPF delete/exhaust install and am questioning if I have enough time/expertise to do it myself at home. Therefore, does anyone know of a shop or someone who could help? Please feel free to PM me if you have any input for someone/shop that would be willing to help, I will obviously pay and if I am allowed to help, gladly will!

I have one on the Beaumont area and went with MRTuning. I heard about them on Canadian EcoDiesel forum. They were really helpful with the whole process and the setup. No mailing your ecu in.

I recently purchased a stage 2 tune through, Ecodiesel Owners Canada. Chris is very helpful and quick to respond to all your questions and concerns. I had a few myself through out the deletion process. You purchase the tune that includes the programmer. Once you receive it you follow the simple instructions received from Chris via email. Email the file to Martin that tunes it and emails it back.

I had also purchased their Transmission tune; however, I was unable to get it to work for me. It always threw an error while trying to read the TCM and despite several attempts at a work around to no avail. Hopefully in the future I can find a dealership that will flash my TCM and I can try again.

The ECM tune and delete has been wonderful thus far (Two weeks and counting). No error codes and fuel economy is already showing a 3-5 MPG increase over stock. Though I haven't had the opportunity to hit the open road to really get an idea of total fuel economy increase.

Any possibility to get the GDE ECM out of the old one?
Oh definitely, that was done! Sold the ECM though already and went with MR Tuning in Canada for Stage 1. I have the stage 2 parts + the tune but have not found a place to install it yet for me.

Darn

Not sure where you live, but I doubt anyone in US will do it. I installed DEF back exhaust in my garage. It wasn't too bad. Hardest part was getting it off the rubber hangers. I would plan exhaust 1 day & EGR another.

I handled my own deleted myself as well. The hardest part for me was the up pipe off the exhaust manifold to the EGR. It was the last part to deal with and I decided to have a plate fabricated to block it off where it bolted to the EGR. It has since vibrated itself apart and I'm now paying somebody to remove that final piece.

There is also the T40 bolt on the back of the EGR that connects the support bracket. I, like many, took a reciprocating saw to the support bracket. Careful not to cut any injector wires.

I personally suggest removing your exhaust, then the EGR, install the plates for the EGR delete, then install new exhaust. Having the exhaust out of the way can be very handy getting to the back of the engine and EGR.

Also, if you're struggling with any bolts on the back of the EGR. I've heard letting the engine heat up can help in getting them out.
