    Also is there a way to take the VIN number and find out if it which ECM type if has CM2250 or CM2350? I don't know the difference but I'm reading on them as we speak. Or, take VIN and check for Recalls minus going to the dealer? Ive done a RigDig on it already...

    Alternative sources? Do you mean a "tune"? The ISX seems to have to most info out there as far as that is concerned...

    Probably referring to Incite, the Cummins software to plug your laptop into the ECM.

    forgive my ignorance..... like I said Ive been a Detroit man for 20 years. I can actually plug it into my laptop? Would I have to buy the program like DDL Detroit? Thats pretty expensive....

    I would stay away from cummins ISX, second one I bought now its burning 2 gallons every 10000 miles currently dropping the dpf to see if its collecting soot in there. Try X15 or in my opinion D13 with manual might be a good option.
    just my 2 cents
     
    nikmirbre Thanks this.

    Too many owners don't realize that the emission systems require routine maintenance, just like everything else on a truck. They don't give it a 2nd thought until that little yellow light on the dash comes on.

    Yes I’m just try to go through a lot and see what exactly would require routine maintenance.

    I plan on getting whatever the highest version of insite I can get also
