    So have you found anyone to turn it up?
    Did you get a bully dog or other even tuners?

    Dealer should be able to update it to 485 or 510 depending on the year and s/n. Some dealers do not like to go higher torque then the drivetrain was rated for. Others do but make you sign so if you blow up the driveline its on you. Try another dealer

    If you don’t mind me asking how has the tune been working out for you? Have you had any issues with turbos going out or engine problems?

    I keep thinking about doing a delete on my truck. I have a 2012 T-660 with an EPA 2010 Paccar MX13 and it is frustrating to have to keep dealing with emissions check engine lights and downtime. Has your truck been running fine since?
