ECM service update on the GDE website, $50 fee.
The dealer will not be able to tell it is tuned by GDE. However, they could over write the tune if FCA makes a new service release as this will change the part number. If this happens, GDE will reinstall the tune for $50.
I think you requested a new ecm anyway, but all the Ram ecms for 2014-2016 are exactly the same. ECMs rarely fail and I would expect the truck to rust out beforehand. We have a 60 day satisfaction guarantee on the tuning.
The cost to retune later on is the price of the added options (off-road is $100) plus a $50 reflash fee. This is accomplished with the 'ecm service update' tab on our website and you can do the mail in or ecm exchange with core deposit. Thanks, GDE

Good question. We are using EFI Live and HP Tuners to flash the Colorado. I think both companies have handheld units for reasonable prices to install the GDE tune. If someone already has an EFI live system, the cost is the tune and a license fee to flash modules. We are still looking at alternative solutions for this to keep the cost down. Our goal is the offer tuning in the same price range as the other vehicle lines we are currently tuning, so 695-800 range, with the flash tool included.
The replay above is accurate. Best to leave the oil cooler alone during the warranty period and there is no cam gear slip issue in the field. GDE
The baseline fuel economy tuning is coming along well. We are planning a hot test in Arizona this summer and altitude/towing trip as well. Once the confirmatory testing is complete we expect to have engine and transmission tuning ready for the market in October time frame. We may have a few options in the transmission tuning depending on customer needs and drive cycles. The engine tuning will have an ECO version and a HOT version. We are completing the development with the HOT tune as it will cover the ECO version.
Not with a good tune. There would be no risk.
This depends on how the tuner turns off egr. We turn it off in normal driving, but still leave the surge protection active to bleed off excess boost on throttle tip outs. In this manner, this is no risk to the engine or turbo.
Yes it will pass any state emission test.
No it does not work on the Ram.
We got 38 mpg on a recent city driving circuit with a 45mph average speed. Seat of the pants performance is at least 1 second quicker on a 0-60mph run. We will not have dyno data until we finish the fuel economy development. The power-torque curve is a one day job. Fuel economy and part load driving characteristics is much more time intensive.
We have several customers running various after-market intakes and none of them improve fuel economy or performance. They primarily seem to be just making more intake noise.

Don't tell them it is tuned and they will never know.
15,000 miles of buildup will most likely not necessitate a cleaning. The cleaning procedure would most likely take a day to do it completely.
