UpRev for Dummies?

Is there a thread out there showing step-by-step guide for acquiring and installing Uprev on our Titans? I have been wanting to jump on it for a while, but want to know exactly what I'm getting into.

All I am aware that is needed is the Uprev cable including their software and a Windows laptop. Do you install it with the stock tune and send them a baseline, or do you go ahead and install whatever tunes they provide, hope it works and data log it?

All I will have different from stock is an intake and true duals.

Re: UpRev for Dummies?

I'm actually in the process of ordering it now.

If I were you I would just buy Osiris standard. Since mine is used I have to buy each tune at 50 a pop. So, I am only getting one for now. When you buy new from them, you will get 5 tunes I believe and you can change them on the fly with the cruise control buttons.

Here is the email and base map info they requested...copy and pasted from their email to me!

''There is a license on the cable. You can purchase a etune and we will send you a base map. Email us the order # here and fill out the base map request form''

Re: UpRev for Dummies?

I'm still new to it, but here is what I gathered.

Send them your ECU# w/ current mods
They will send you back a base ROM
Apply the ROM, then data log what you want (0-60, cruising at 70, driving around town, etc) Logs need to be grabbed while you are doing the above
Send logs to Uprev, and they will fine tune and send you the ROM
Apply and all is well.
I have a ECU that isn't listed, so I have to dump my .bin and send in to be cracked, then start the process.

GL, it's been a process for me

Re: UpRev for Dummies?

Sorry I'm on my phone and can't post long detailed posts very coherently but I'll do my best.

Uprev is the company, Osiris is the product. It's an ecu reflash that allows your ecu to be completely retuned, eliminating the WOT restriction, calibrating the A/F ratio and timing, disabling any DTC's for good in the ecu,
Setting the rev and speed limits, etc.

It's completely software based, and has licenses,
Much like Microsoft windows. The licenses are transported on cipher cables, then flashed onto the ecu to make it tuneable. One the license is transferred onto the ecu you can reflash an update or new tune as many times as you want.

There are 3 ways to get Osiris. Buy standard
From uprev for 500 plus shipping, they mail you the cable, you datalog and email back to them the results and they modify the tune (rom file) and email it back to you. When you buy direct from them for full price you get 3 of these updates for free. I you buy it used you do not get them. Everyone else can still purchase these etunes but they're $50 each.
downside is you cannot access, modify, or even view your own tune.
2 buy Osiris tuner for 700 plus shipping. They send you a cable with special code that allows you to make as many changes
To the rom file as you want, you can completely tune the truck yourself or just make small changes. It does not include
Any etunes.
3 go to a protuner shop and get tuned. Expensive and you don't get the cable, so you can't flash back to stock later and sell used or use it on a different vehicle,but the dyno tune will always be more spot on than etunes.

At any time if you want a dyno tune you can go to a protuner and jut pay for the dyno time (usually 300 or so) since you already have the license.

Re: UpRev for Dummies?

the easiest way to verify the ecu part # is to connect the cable and load Osiris, it will automatically display it for You

May want to change #5 to 1500RPM because when the truck is cold it goes above 1000RPM and sounds funny with the truck turning on and off.

This happened to me so I changed it...

Its like an alarm when you hear your T going on and off

And how do you change the tunes via the cruise control buttons? How do you know which tune your in etc?

It's an anti-theft map.. The goal is to make the truck barely run... I'd set it even lower

So, I have this map. Let me say its not good if you forget to change the maps when you get in and start the truck ... Do what you want but just imagine your wife starting your truck and not knowing.

The truck starts bucking even when you are not moving.
