The link below contains the work around for allowing windows 8 pc to recognize the flash scan console driver.


Blocking the EGR system mechanically will negate the turbo overboost bleed function regardless if you block it near the intake manifold or next to exhaust manifold. The turbo bleed function is also part of the base software, we did not change this function. After an accel and then tip-out of the throttle you should be able to hear the turbo make a whoosh, whoosh, whoosh sort of sound. This is bad for turbo life. The sound will vary a bit depending on the rate of change in reducing the engine load.
The CCV is a "dumb" system and the engine tune will have no effect on it. The core issue with having the CCV plumbed to the clean air duct is the oil being recirculated through the engine and contaminating the rubber boost hoses. The stock hoses weaken with exposure to oil over time and they will eventually rupture. We opted for installing SAMCO boost hoses that have silicon in them to prevent oil bleed through. With strong hoses the oil harmlessly flows through the engine. With a stock tune the oil will still mix with EGR soot in the intake manifold and cause more sludge buildup. However, with a GDE tune the soot no longer enters the intake manifold and the oil now coming through acts as a detergent to slowly break down the soot currently inthe manifold. Do not expect it to clean the manifold, but at least will will not worsen. Thanks, GDE
Has anyone used the flash tool recently on Windows 7 64bit? We would like to hear your feedback on how this worked out.

Windows 7 32 bit seems to work, but are there any tricks to make it easier? We are running XP and not familiar with the other systems.

Hope your CRDs are still running well!
We have only been running without the mechanical fan during the winter months. It helps to counteract the fuel economy drop from winterized fuel. No issues to report when running without the fan, just do not tow much in this configuration.
A larger turbo frameset will most likely be too big for the 2.8l engine. With the higher inertia, the lag in building low end boost will increase. No need for extra air flow at the higher rpm range as the cylinder head is flow limited above 3600rpm. A port job would help this out, but the wall thickness would be reduced too much and potentially lead to premature head cracks. With the limitation in cylinder head flow, the smaller frame turbo GT1756 provides quicker response at low rpm and more flow at higher rpm as the bearings can handle an extra 30,000rpm over the stock turbo.

We are out of turbo kits and prior to building the next batch of 10 we will need 7 pre-orders or intent to buy before the kits are built. Sorry about this but the carrying cost of inventory is not worthwhile. Please call us or email to discuss your timing needs for the turbo. May be a good opportunity to plan for winter maintenance or even for next year.

Your CRD has the earliest version of code for the 2006 CRD. We can tune it as is, but you do not have all the Chrysler logic features with the old code. It would be beneficial to have the ECM updated by the dealer prior to reading the original file off the CRD. After the dealer update you can read the original file and send to us for tuning. This would also prevent the dealer from inadvertently updating your software in the future as you would already have the latest they offer.

Thanks, GDE
Our newest tune offering focuses on improving the Grand Cherokee CRD fuel economy and part/full throttle performance.

The average fuel economy gain is roughly 3-5mpg depending on driving style and average speed. This is accomplished by optimizing the fuel combustion through changes in injection timing, fuel pressure, boost pressure, pilot injection events. EGR issues are eliminated and the smoke emissions are reduced substantially. For vehicles equipped with a DPF (particulate filter), the regeneration frequency is less and backpressure tends to be lower further improving the fuel economy. In normal driving the exhaust temps are 50-100 F lower than stock to improve engine and turbo life.

Off the line performance is improved through improved combustion and an optimized turbo vane position. The 0-60 mph results show the GDE tune to be about 1 second faster than stock. This equates to about a 40hp gain at 4000rpm. Torque is increased from 1800-4000rpm linearly by about 40 ft*lb.

This tune can cause sensory overload when the go pedal is hammered! The fuel economy improvement is icing on the cake, especially considering the high price of diesel fuel.
Below is a link showing the GDE Fuel Economy Trans Tune shift schedule.


Here is a link showing the GDE Towing Trans Tune shift schedule.


The primary difference is the towing tune will hold 4th gear until 70mph (2280 engine rpm) and then upshift to 5th gear. Using 4th gear between 50-70mph while towing loads over 2500lb. is beneficial for holding gear while traversing hills and it also keeps the engine rpm in the most efficient torque zone to reduce the tendency for gear hunting.

In extreme towing conditions it is still recommended to turn off the O/D and tow in 3rd gear. This will keep the engine rpm higher to maximize coolant flow through the radiator and spinning the mechanical fan faster to increase the air flow across the radiator.
Unfortunately, we are out of belts at the moment. Not sure about getting more in. The part numbers for timing belt replacement ar as follows:

Timing belt 5142579AA
Idler pulley 5142573AA (2 required)
Tensioner 5142798AA

Good luck with the upcoming job!
There is a transmission issue. Most likely the torque converter is on the way out, but it could also be a fluid contamination issue or something the valve body. Have you noticed any strange shifting behavior prior to the code?

Send me an email and we can discuss. When you open PWGConsole you can change the language to English with one of the menu buttons. Since the tool only holds 3 tunes, I am not aware of how to delete the uploaded tunes without requiring flashing the CRD back to stock, then erasing the tool. I beleive we will need a new original file read. Thanks.
A variable idle speed based on cruise control is not possible on the KJ CRD application. The logic you are referring to is a variant of an all-speed governor unit. To do this on the CRD would require new logic inside the engine controller and massive investment from Bosch to write the code.
