    MP7 engine

    if you are replacing injector make sure to program new injector trim codes/files. you will need ptt program to do that. also, injector cups are common issue on those

    Mack CXU 613 2011 DPF Problems

    considering the fact that i almost got bankrupt, i just have to share the following with you, it saved me. no matter how much you invest in repairs - it won't run well. https://truckecmtunes.com/

    Derate warning

    maybe try using a program such as Norgeon JPRO - that is not bad at all. i had good luck with it. i do thing that you can reset the learned data in PTT under Engine section - and something called Aftertreatment data... (can't recall). best option is deleting it, this saved my ass big time https://truckecmtunes.com/

    Anyone doing full deletes on MP8s yet??

    Problem with the guys I use is the fact that they insist that you have diagnostic adapter and some repair experience, but I can tell you for sure that they are the best money can buy. Reason I am saying that is because I re did couple of bad delete tunings done somehwer else, and had nothing but good luck with them. Also they can do the OBD Macks and Volvos. Thumbs up for https://truckecmtunes.com/
  7. Hey dude, just read your post and visited your link. I'm having  scr engine derate to mph issues. How soon were you able to get your truck right after using those guys and how much did it cost you? Thanks

      I do have the diagnostic adapter they need and my own shop. so i only paid for tuning.

      I paid like 3200 for the tuning on the ones with def.

      took me like 2-3 days to do all the work (my self).

    EGR/DPF delete

    they performed great! no issues at all. the only thing i noticed was boost going from 35 psi to 25-26 psi, but that is normal because it is open exhaust now. i thought that it might have less power because of low boost, so i took one non deleted truck and a deleted truck (both sister trucks). hooked up same load, and used land marks to determine what kind of speed will it get on certain distance...and the speed is the same. once i prooved that to my drivers, they stopped complaining and started driving normal. then i got .5 - .7 MPG more. not hell of a lot, but still better than nothing, right! also no issues with dpf egr scr def - that saved my ass.

    it would save a ton of money & work if there was a tune that would eliminate the egr and vgt on old macks. i asked my tuners, but they don't have it. are you happy with power & mpg?
