Your engine is controlled by an electronic management system (ECM). ECM tuning is the process of modifying that software in order to improve response, increase power, and lower fuel consumption. At the simplest level, custom ECM tuning involves pulling the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) files and optimizing them in some form.
The difference between having a custom ECM tuning and running with the stock tune for your truck is truly night and day. Not only will your truck perform better, but the long-term cost-saving advantages will become noticeable and start to add up within the first year. And perhaps the best part of all, it increases the overall lifespan of an engine.
