Not sure that I would try to do that. If you can find someone with the program on a laptop thats the way to go.

i would like to access the ecm the same way you can access the ecm on a passenger vehicle using tuner pro, c.a.t., or moaites for pulling info, changing parameters and analyzing info. instead of going to the dealer and being run over the coals each time. anyone out there think they can help?

Going into the ECM with a laptop and an ebay bought program wont get it done. That justs let you set the user/driver controls and reads and troubleshoots codes the the ECM has set. Anything to do with turning up the fuel/horsepower has to have a password from CAT.

Try looking at this link and see if someone there can help you.

We use a program to program those. By you changing something my mess things up. i would suggest against it. And any changes you are going to be held reliable and your warrent (if you have one) wont be valid anymore. so think about that before. if you bought it from cat contact someone. I will not tell you the program name that is confidential thru cat. but again doing this will void any warrenty. no promises there but just telling ya.

you need to set the torque not so much horsepower though torque is where you get the pulling power you want or need.
