No it does not unless you want to use the Power on Demand Option.

So if you plug it in you can read and clear codes, than set whatever power level you want than unplug it ,it will stay at whatever power level you set it at?

blujak, you might want to post this in the 3rd gen section...

https://www.dieseltruckresource.com/...play.php?f=107

Short answer... I don't think that you need to stack them, but you can always try. I do not know much about banks, but if it re-writes the ecm also, you will not be able to use it.

Do you have an aftermarket fuel pump? Tranny mods? If you turn the smarty up, a stock tranny will not last long...

I have a few Smarty questions: (1) is this going to work with my in-tank, dealer-replaced lift pump that was installed when my VP44 went down for the dirt nap, (2) will this help give me a little more power for towing my 31' TT? (3) Will this blow anything up and/or harm my engine in any way? I have an '01 with the 5 speed tranny, so I'm not too worried about that part of the equation. (4) Is the Smarty just a plug and play item, or are there permanently installed parts to it? (5) Do I need more lift pump, like an AirDog or something first?

Need advice before pulling the trigger. Thanks!
