i just installed the knoedler extreme low rider in my 08 fg, mounted it directly to the floor. im on my way to the overland expo in north carolina, so far i love it. with the built in compressor all thats needed is to run a hot wire to the seat.
fuso diagnostic tool
well, if your ever close to calif i fianally broke down and got an official fuso diagnostic tool mutt 3 and computer along with the manual, at least for around year 08 but covers other years too. it has the procedure to check your codes and errase them using...
on a us fuso fg140, absolutely any changes to any variables that the ecu sees outside of a fixed set of parameters wil first cause a check engine light, if this is not corrected within a certain amount of milage, it may be alittle different between specific vehicals but...
to the best of my knowledge, there are no available performance chips, remapping or simulators available on the market currently that will work on the fuso, any year. much older fusos can be mechanically modified but not thru the electronics.
yes, the day of good old reliable trucks is gone, at least for the moment. comercial trucks are just that, made for work and constant expensive matainence and repairs which mostly only big companies can afford. and the trucks are built accordingly. a fun day to be had...
i know its been over a year, trying to do a successful dpf delete and waiting for results. i think i can officially say remapping a us version of the fuso ecu is not a option right now. chiptune nor any other company i have been able to find has been successful in...
Someone asked about the China knockoff for the mutual 3. Sorry I've haven't had the chance to see all the new postings.
My take, is you get what you pay for. I am absolutely positive the US has a few of its own requirements on trucks here.
Using a knockoff system made outside the...
Well, after 2000 miles it appears this last procedure was unsuccessful. At least I had a good time at full power while it lasted. There is a big difference in power with the dpf removed, I was impressed.
But it's not all bad, I have a much better understanding of the dpf, flashing dpf...
Hello robert, and all
I don't want to jinx myself just yet. I am currently on a road trip cross country with my camper to check things out, yay.
If all continues to go well I will have a full write up on the dpf delete soon and some very interesting findings on being in a derate mode, and...
Yes, the us emissions is a mess. Essentially if you want to travel out of the country. They are unreliable, can't handle cold weather and basically are the only problems I have had with my truck since I bought it new in 08.
After a recent exhaustive search for alternatives to clearing...
Just to clarify,
My truck is currently in limp derate mode and the dpf lights flash with the ecu reinstalled for the second time. I am working with chiptuning to try and solve this problem.
In my defence, chiptune instructions state to remove the dpf unit. The sensors are installed...
i can only speak for an 08 fuso fg with the 1st series regeneration system, dont do it. the fuel filter is completely inadequate for this year. in addition you will need to be very careful in adding or making any chance to the fuel filter system as this will lead to low rail fuel...
