I like the tune so much I bought a second CRD, in a matter weeks

I like my CRD alot more with the tune.
Now that I got a second CRD, it was fun to drive but the novelty has worn off, now I go directly to the GDE tuned CRD, and let my wife drive the stocker I will be getting the tune on the new CRD shortly. The tuned one feels as if the drive shaft is connected directly to the engine, and it runs so much smoother.

Good Job GDE
On the VW TID it is a butterfly built into the EGR, on when you turn the key off, vacuum closed the butterfly for smooth shut down, and to prevent a run away engine. Does the CRD EGR have this on it?

So, what you are saying is that the anti shudder valve is still enabled and the EGR is never enabled?
Just got mine with the ECO tune. So far so good. The engine starts much quicker then it ever has, sounds more powerful even at idle. I notice it does not smoke up the garage like it used to. The EVIC is reporting 3 more MPG, and I only drove it around locally, all the while punching the accelerator I can feel it is much more responsive and more powerful. I have never got so much gratification out of spending $550 dollars, and I got so much more power and torque, with out even getting my hands dirty. Another thing I notice is the response is instant when you press the accelerator at a cruising speed, no lag or hesitation, sort of like speeding up an electric motor with a potentiometer. The GDE is sweet

The euro TC part number is: 68037142AA. It is our understanding that this converter can be ordered through a dealer or mopar online (less $$$). The converter is on back order until 13 September at this point in time.


It is pretty cheap, less then $200

I got a new scan tool, and I wanted to see how it was with CRD codes. So I unplugged the MAF and the vacuum line to the turbo. Took it for a ride, it ran a little rougher, but I could not get a CEL. Exactly what kinds of problems does this mod ignore? What can I do to get a CEL now?
