Nope can't say that I have but it's been some time since I've owned a diesel rig.

I like that they stated they don't make power by overfueling the engine. That is the leading cause of high exhaust gas temps and turbo failure.

I'd check them out pretty closely before buying.

Can't say that I've ever heard of them myself. I like to stick with the proven programmers like smarty Jr, H&S, etc, due to their proven gains and tunability. For the 6.7L, IMHO, the best is the miniMAXX from H&S

That's the third time I've heard approval of the H&S minMAXX. Thanks I am doing my best in comparing them all to making a good educated decision!!

I've owned my diesel truck for 6 years since new, and done tons of research on tuners, since I plan to add one to my truck once my warranty is up. In all my research, I have never heard of Diesel Tunes Performance, and I don't plan on being a guinea pig for their products.
