I have a 2010 Navion RV which is on a 2008 Sprinter chassis. I bought the unit used with 8,441 miles on it two years ago and have added 6,000 or so miles since then. I currently own a Chevy Silverado with a diesel and have had some EGR issues with that in the past, so when I read some reviews of the Green Diesel Tune on the Winnebago's Skinnie-Winnies Forum I was interested. I wasn’t sure it was something I needed this early in the life of my Navion with my main thought of avoiding EGR and swirl valve problems down the line. I exchanged information with a few people who had installed the tune and the reviews were all positive. I decided to install the tune now rather than wait till I was having problems. I installed the tune before a recent trip. The process was quite easy and the support from Green Diesel Engineering was quite good. After placing an order, they send you a tool to read your system through the OBDII port. You email that “package” of data to them. They send you back an updated “package” of data to upload to the sprinter, using the same tool. You keep the tool and have your original programming along with the tuned program, so if you ever want or need to switch back you can. After taking the trip, my impressions are that the Sprinter has more power. I have a scan gauge connected to my OBDII port and my LOD readings are definitely lower compared with before on known things like hills. Subjectively it also feels like it has more power. I was hoping for a slight increase in mileage, but weather and wind conditions did not let me evaluate that fully. I’m happy with my tune. I’ve immediately gained some power, and perhaps will avoid some limp time with an EGR or swirl valve problem in the future.
