I also assume asking too many questions about getting software will get this thread shut down.

for cummuns only stuff... an Chineese knock-off Inine-6 adapter is just fine. They are as stable and reliable as the genuine ones.

As far as Nexiq goes... the Chineese knock-offs are complete garbage. You need to use a Genuine Nexiq that costs $700+ dollars only... and buy it from a local fleet-pride or from Nexiq themselves, as there are a lot of fake one's running around on internet.


-- As far as needing an Inline or a Nexiq... An inline will get you by if all you got is cummins stuffs. .. however if you have detroit, cat, etc.. as well.. you need a Nexiq instead... a genuine Nexiq, not a chineese knock-off.

invest in BOTH is what i recommend if your working on a verity of engines... that way you have a backup device if one or the other is not working for you. A chineeseium Inline-6 and a genuine Nexiq. - this is what I own and I get by just fine for everything.

RE: Diagnostic software
So my remaining question is where to get reliable software. Are there options other than paying several thousand per year for the OEM subscription?

RE: Diagnostic software
maybe a google search or 3 of the auto tuning sites?.

Should be aware that most of them are beyond horrible places to hang out though... a lot of deception and rip-off people out to take you money for virus-prone waRez. Is also the sources of the horrible delete programming that all these shops use too.

I stay far away from them, as they all hate my site and me for pointing out their horrible ecm programming garbage and because I help others for free. Goes against their ripp-off narratives.

Personally, I don't blame anyone who owns their own equipment for trying to find alternatives to the rip-off stealersHi#ts and their severely over-priced subscription-based softwares. My personal opinion is that the stuff should come free with the engine/vehicle upon purchase in exchange for the headaches these emissions systems cause everyone and the severely under-trained certified-OEM gaggle of facilities who mostly do nothing but rip ppl off ... but that is just me.

- however, this site is about helping others with their trucks .. not how to trade/pirate softwares ... There is no glory in that and all the good info on here about helping people, advice, and assistance with repairs to their equipment, is not worth getting switched off or shut down simply because someone is looking for softwares that are already on other websites.

Let those other sites who pirate that stuffs take that risk and fight those battles... it does not belong here.

I believe you said it better than I could have. Having worked for an AG equipment dealership previously I have experience with OEM software and now I just can't stand having to pay a dealer $100 just to get them to plug a computer in and change some settings when I know I could easily do that myself if I had access to the right tools/software. For example I currently have a 2000 Mack that needs the PTO high idle rpm adjusted because we swapped the 8LL to a 13 speed which has a different PTO gearing speed thus needing the rpm setting changed and the dealer wants $100 right off to plug in.

I just ordered a NexiQ from the popular website (synonymous with fuelnotebook) and they offer free V-MAC III software and general fault code software so that will solve my problem for now and I'll see how far that will get me.

Thanks to all who shared there experience and knowledge on this subject it is very valuable to me as a young man trying to learn!

Some of us have Diamond Logic for the international, but the PACCAR stuff, no clue where you would get that, or the, Volvo or Cat... This is a question best asked of Mr Hagg or Rawze, you might want to pm one of them and see what they say, I know software discussions like this can sometimes get a thread shut down. And they are valid questions, don't get me wrong. Just letting you know software discussions can get tricky here... So please do not get offended if the thread is shut down. The answers are here, you may just have to get them via PM. Personally, I would PM Mr Hagg
i always enjoy your answers,thanks
