You should at least ge an EGT guage installed to monitor you temps and keep it in a somewhat safe range.

im with scott.. you need at least a EGT gauge.. but i would just install a full set of gauges because the stock trans gauge is useless and very inaccurate.

your stock intake will flow more than enough air for up to 400rear HP before it becomes too restrictive... so i would go with an exhaust before i did an intake... any 4" TB straight piped will drop your egt's significantly

let us know if you have any other questions

More smoke equals higher egts as well.

Don't do it without an EGR gauge or your looking at problems that cost big $.
EGT is simple to do it yourself. The reason people add the exhaust and intake is to help lower the EGT with the chip but you can get by without if you have an egt gauge.

I know a few people who run pretty stable egts on a chip with the stock intake, and a home-made cat and muffler delete on their stock exhaust. I would deffinitely spend the money on a 4" turbo back for insurance though. Until then, I'd keep it on the tow setting.

to answer your question, no but it will hurt your transmission.

what's wrong with the exhaust and intake, I know it costs some money, but really... it's totally worth it in the end
oh- and an SCT as well, you don't know power until those three letters are lined up in your alphabet :nate:

I chipped my truck at 50 hp setting and have no problems.I service my transmission
every 30,000 and I have a transmission cooler.I find myself putting less pressure on the
pedal with the chip than in stock mode.I bought it off a guy who had it on f250 and
he got 18-20 mpg driving it normal.He kept his 7.3 to well over 200,000 and just bought
new 6.4 .I asked him how he like it and he said he wanted his old truck back!
