The Challenge

This blog post’s purpose is to shine a light on ECU tuning and how tuning the DAF CF 85 truck can give it the extra power boost it is longing for. ECU tuning involves modifying the factory software settings of the electronic control unit (ECU), resulting in increased power and torque, providing a competitive advantage for businesses.

DAF has been manufacturing the DAF CF 85 truck since 1992, with several upgrades over the years. This blog post focuses on the 2010 DAF CF 85 equipped with a 12.6L diesel engine. The truck exhibited a lack of power when fully loaded or navigating steep hills, impacting delivery times. However, the solution doesn’t necessarily involve purchasing a new truck. At Alt Tune, we specialize in ECU tuning, offering a cost-effective alternative to enhance the efficiency of your DAF CF 85, making it a more enjoyable and beneficial asset for your business.

The Solution

In addition to the increased power and torque, tuning the DAF CF 85 enhances towing capabilities, making it easier to haul heavy loads and eliminating delays due to a heavy load. Furthermore, the tuning optimizes fuel consumption and improves throttle response, resulting in cost savings and a more enjoyable driving experience.

What sets us apart is our commitment to custom tuning all our tunes in-house. We tailor each tune to the specific vehicle, the customer’s needs, and the driving environment to ensure that our tuning is not only the best but also the safest. ECU tuning is not a one-size-fits-all scenario, as a generic tune can lead to serious problems. To prioritize safety in the tuning process, we utilize Alientech KESS3 to flash the tune.
