Tuning the John Deere 5100E tractor

2019 John Deere 5E Series

5100E – 4.5L – Turbo Diesel – Phoenix I33 ECU

The Challenge

In this article, we will explore how tuning the John Deere 5100E can unlock the hidden potential of its ECU and address problems related to the emissions systems.

Utility tractors like the John Deere 5100E are known for their practicality and versatility. This particular model features a 4.5L turbo diesel engine that can produce up to 100 horsepower, making it suitable for a wide range of farm tasks. One of its versatile features is the category 2 three-point hitch, allowing you to use various attachments with the tractor. However, the 5100E comes equipped with both EGR and DPF emissions systems, which can lead to issues that result in time and money being wasted.

The Solution

You can significantly enhance your tractor’s power and efficiency with a customized tune from Alt Tune. By adjusting different parameters in the 5100E’s Phoenix I33 ECU using Alientech KESS3, we can tap into its hidden power and optimize the engine’s performance to better suit your specific needs. This means that instead of investing in a more powerful tractor, you can achieve the desired performance with your tuned 5100E, saving you a considerable amount of money.

Furthermore, our emissions system solution can be integrated into the tune, eliminating the need for expensive trips to mechanics to resolve emissions system issues for your 5100E. In overview, a custom tune from Alt Tune proves to be a cost-effective choice in multiple aspects.
