How to update a Smarty
What does " CaTCHER " stand for?
CaTCHER stands for Clutch and Traction Challenger.
What is so special about the CaTCHER?
The CaTCHER software is a unique animal. It improves throttle response of the engine greatly. It spools up the turbo sooner. (On average 200 RPM sooner.) It deals with the injection timing. It alters the torque management, just to mention a few.
What's the difference in the CaTCHER softwares?
Mainly the throttle response, or the aggressiveness of the engine response. Since the full-blown CaTCHER develops torque instantly it can become a pain to drive it on slippery roads. Thus the need to reduce the response some. Furthermore, there are CaTCHER versions with and without added timing stored in the Smarty.
Does Smarty only have CaTCHER softwares on board?
No, Smarty offers SW# 0 that provides about HALF the power of a stock software. SW# 1 of Smarty S-03 is a Fuel Saver software. SW# 2 of Smarty S-03 deals only with fuel and boost. SW # 3 of Smarty S-03 is fuel, boost, and timing. The remaining levels can be considered full title CaTCHERs.
Does Smarty do the boost fooling function?
Yes, all the softwares in Smarty have modified boost tables in order to allow higher boost without defueling (Except SW # 0 and Stock ).
Can Smarty go from one program to another, or do you have to go back to stock, then to a program?
You can go from any software # to any SW #. No need to go back to stock.
Is Smarty ECM or VIN sensitive?
YES! Smarty only works with one truck AND one ECM at one time. 1 Smarty = One truck AND one ECM.
Is Smarty's DTC reader also VIN# Locked?
If the update is interrupted, how can I recover the ECM?
First of all DON'T PANIC! An interrupted update is a piece of cake for Smarty. Smarty will recover your truck automatically back to the STOCK software.
Can a dealer detect Smarty?
If you take your 5.9L truck back to stock software then the answer is no. On 6.7L trucks however, the Smarty is detectable
