Product Details

Product Name: Motor Ops DSP4 Auto Cal Tuning - (Switch Is Included)
Manufacturer: Motor Ops
Manufacturer Part #: 28ACDSP4/ER
Thoroughbred Diesel Part #: MTO28ACDSP4/ER
Fitment Notes: 2016-2017 Canyon/Colorado 2.8L

The 2.8L Duramax in its factory trim is rated at 180 HP by General Motors. Complimenting the new power plant is the 6L50 transmission. Both the engine and transmission use existing powertrain control modules which have allowed the Motor Ops team to quickly gain access to more power.

After hundreds of revisions, the 2.8L Duramax and 6L50 transmission now meet Motor Ops stringent quality standards. We are confident our new product will significantly outperform the factory calibration in power, driveability, and mileage. By working through the engine and transmission calibrations together, we significantly widened and raised the factory torque curve, settling on a peak of 460ft-lbs which is very close to the rated capacity of the transmission. With a wider torque curve, we're able to shift the truck sooner and engage torque converter lockup earlier without the truck bogging. The outcome is a truck that operates at lower RPMs, resulting in improved fuel economy.

Tuning on the 2.8L Duramax includes 4 power levels that are switchable on the fly. They are as follows:

Canyon/Colorado (2.8L Duramax 2016-2017)

  • Optimized Stock (+10 HP): For towing at or over max GVWR. Also useful when the truck is driven by those who do not need the extra power and torque.
  • Tow Tune (+32HP/30ft-lbs): This tune is designed to incorporate appropriate power and torque gains for towing. It greatly improves your ability to get the load up to speed, and maintain it on grades or while passing.
  • Sport Economy Tune (+45HP/60ft-lbs): A very fun tune that is recommended for daily driving use in unloaded scenarios. This tune has a little bit too much mustard for extended high output pulls such as those you'd encounter while towing.
  • Performance Tune (+52HP/80ft-lbs): No explanation needed. This is edge of performance balanced with long term reliability. Enjoy!

*DPF/Emissions Delete - Race Use Only. This product does support emissions removal for trucks that are intended to be used for race use only. It is the responsibility of the customer to know their local laws and adhere to them. Motor Ops is not responsible for the unlawful use of this product.
**Beware competitors HP ratings. Ours gains are verified at the rear wheels using the factory turbocharger and factory high pressure pump. They're not flywheel estimates or potential gains with additional parts upgrades.

  • After placing your order one of our Duramax specialist will call you to ask questions about your truck such as VIN #, tire size and turbo/injector/engine information. Feel free to call us at 866-737-4966 with any questions.

  • Does the autocal tuner for the 2016 2.8 duramax come with a trans tune or just the engine tune?

    It does not, transmission tuning is separate.
