PPE?

PPE users. Good, Bad, Other. Anything you can tell me. I know everybody loves the SCT. PPE is the tuner I ordered so what ever you can tell me about it?

I think thats the tuner that claims really high HP & torque at the flywheel not the rear wheels. Haven't heard much about it on this site but heres a bump for ya.

i installed sevaral PPE's on 6.0L PSD's and the only complaint yet is the back tires don't wear very good..LOL.most guys gain roughly 2.3MPG and the hp #'s are rated at the crank but you should see mid 400's if not uptowards 475RWHP with the right amount of fuel and air on the high setting..

I think any programer if they wanted too could pump those numbers out, but the key is doing it relatively safely.

like i said with the right amount of fuel and air...
for instance my LBZ duramax has the PPE and here about 4 months ago i dynoed it with a 350HP at the crank tune and could only get 425rwhp with the only mod the PPE and exhaust but since then i installed a turbo booster and lift pumps(ya it's tons faster)and now i feel confident i have somewhere around 470 to 490RWHP range(if not more but i doupt it since my tranny is still stock)but i don't have real dyno #'s to back it up..

that is something to consider too. i have seen a few sigantures of members here with quite a bit of money invested into thier trucks and they arent laying down that much, or not much more than 475rwhp. thats all i'm saying.

i do know that a PPE tuned 6.0L with the lift pumps made my LBZ work a little to beat him so i was highly impressed by the smooth power all thru out the gears..

PPE has a chip avalible for the 01 thru 03 7.3L PSD.
