Re: finally did it

I have had mine deleted for a week now and have to say I wish I hadn't waited so long. Its been great so far on fuel economy and the way the truck runs just seems so smooth. And it sounds awesome. Great choice so far and I don't regret it a bit!

I would recommend following the defeuling guidelines as prescribed in the manual though. I kind of scared me when I took it for the first test drive and the boost gauge jumped to 30 psi in a split second. Just be careful and enjoy!

^^^^^^


I understand the whole defueling thing but I run mine on stock or no power and my boost always gets that high when I get into it.

Cool thanks a lot guys. I am going to get the defuel parmeters on there. If I ran the mild tune and kept it on there would I risk damaging anything?

I'm sure you already know of the risk by putting the delete and added HP from the tuner anyway, so I'm not sure its a absolute guarantee that nothing will go wrong. But I would say if you drive somewhat reasonably and not try to drag race from light to light you will be safe. But every truck is different and that's the risk we all took when we decided to allow our trucks to breathe better and be more efficient.

Yeah your right, but I heard the fuel milage is better if you run the tuner on hot vs no power or mild. Is this true?

With 35's on stock tune I'm getting 16. No bad for what it is. Haven't tried hot tune but I think that's what most run on and it's supposed to be better.

Re: finally did it

I can't say for sure the difference in the power settings yet since I have only had it deleted for a week. What I can say is there is a huge difference, in my case, in just the delete pipe. I'm still on my first tank so I haven't hand calculated the mpg's yet, but the truck says 20.1 mpg. That's about 4-5 mpg better so far driving the same route and same style as before. The meter on the truck has always been fairly accurate so I'm excited to see how much the difference will be.

Cool thanks for the info guys. Yeah I don't plan on drag racing all the time. But every once in a while shouldn't be bad. Hey that's why we put these programmers on for, and to improve the longevity of our engines also.
