A throttle position sensor (TPS) is required for any transmission controller to work properly (see more information below). There are several options available. If your Cummins has a sensor on it already this works the best. All 98.5 and newer engines will have one. Earlier engines may have one if the engine was in a Dodge pickup with an automatic transmission originally. Instructions will be included with your controller that will direct you on how to do the wiring.

If your truck is equipped with a 5R110 automatic transmission please see below for more information and other options.

DCS does not included a tuning package with a Quick 4 module.  A laptop computer is NOT necessary but it does streamline the tuning process.  You can download the software at US Shift's website.  The download contains numerous "pre-set" tunes.  The Shiftware software is easy to use so we recommend you take a look at tuning the transmission yourself.  If you don't want to do the tuning or don't feel comfortable please let us know.  We charge a very reasonable fee for tuning assistance.

Ford 5R110

Currently there are no aftermarket transmission control modules available (09/01/2016).  This may change in the future but these are not "user friendly" as a transmission swap at any rate.  We currently offer transmission tuning for the 6.0L & 6.4L diesel trucks for what we call Stock Tuning.  Click HERE for more information.

Throttle Position Sensor Options

1989-1993 12 Valve Cummins with Bosch VE rotary injection pump

If you are installing this engine into a 1967-2002 Ford, or a Chevy, the best tps option for you is a universal cable operated tps. These are available through us from either PCS or Compushift for their advertised price. If installing this engine in a 2003-2010 Ford Diesel, we have pedal bracket kits available to allow the stock pedal to be used for the throttle position sensor. If you happen to have this Cummins and it has the stock OEM tps,it is usable, but they are very expensive to replace.

1994-1998 12 Valve Cummins with Bosch P-7100 inline injection pump

If you are installing this engine into a 1967-2002 Ford, or a Chevy, the best tps option for you is the Dodge Cummins tps (as long as you have the Dodge Cummins throttle linkage- industrial versions of this engine do not have this linkage).

1998.5-Present 24 Valve Cummins
These engine always have a tps, and you can share the tps signal with the transmission controller according to our wiring instructions.
E4OD, 4R100, 4L60E, 4L80E only at this time
