My truck SUCKS!

You read that right. I have been driving my truck for a few days without my chip. It's almost unbearable to drive without it. It's really bad when you're stopped at a light next to (insert brand here) and you don't think you can beat them to the lane merg . Or for those times when you need to accelerate for "merging" purposes onto the interstate and you can't out accelerate those ricers. I miss my Wildman chip. I can't wait to get it back, it was good before without being tuned for big oil, so I can't wait to see the difference with it being tuned for it. Go ahead I dare you to pull your chip, and experience STOCK

Go ahead I dare you to pull your chip, and experience STOCK thats priceless...at least you didn't have to pull it cause you thought it was causing all the problems...so there is a potential of it being the problem meaning you don't get to put it back in....and yeah they are dogs stock.

When I took my truck in for them to diagnose and rebuild the tranny recently, I went to the trouble of dumping the program back to stock to eliminate the tranny shift mods, so they could see what it was doing pure... I guess it did a little too much- they called and said the tranny was fine, the truck just had no power! I asked if they would reprogram it with the 100hp boost and try again... they called back later that day and said it was doing what I said, and that the power was back...
I can't imagine having to go stock... I had to use the shop's 07 250, which was not bad, but I miss my 7.3...

I remind myself every once in a while and switch my ts to stock. Can't believe the difference with just the 50 setting.

If you haven't had a PPE, you should try it out. You would say bye bye to your sct.
