Default Timming?

I own a 2011 Dodge 2500 Diesel with a Smarty-me. I do not know about timming. Can I change it and be safe?

I didn't notice much of a difference when I changed mine other than a bit more engine rattle. I just pick a tune , set it and forget it.. I just want to hit 500000km and not make 700hp

If your not trying to make big power and adding lots of mods dont mess with it. The tunes are set to maximize power anyway and if thats all your using just leave it.

My truck is a 2011 and I have a Smarty J-67ME. I have it set at tow/haul now. I want to try Performance. It keeps
asking me about timming selection. I want the best setting but keep my head gaskets..

set timing to default witch means the programmer will choose for you. If you are worried about head gaskets and repairs why would you push the truck beyond what the factory will hold. The extra 40-60hp a programmer will add is plenty for daily driving. Put a cold air kit in you will notice a bunch more power on the higher rpm's.

My friend had a bully dog for his 5.9 and wanted economy and he got it..He also read that the programmer would go a extra 225hp. He tried it for a week . The rubber that the duely laid down was cool but the $4000.00 trany that went in it was not. The programmer was sold shortly after.

I ordered a afe momentum hd with the progaurd 7 filter for my 2012. With the off road driving I do I went for the sealed air box rather than the open filter.
