New Member. Just bought a 97' CC SB. A couple questions.
First diesel. Just bought a 97' with 160K miles, Edge tuner, mostly stock from what I can tell. Wheel bearings, upper and lower ball joints, and water pump were all replaced withing the last 6 months. Tranny rebuilt 1 yr ago with another 2 yrs on transferrable warranty. Tranny cooler added with temp gauge. Checked blades on turbo and they look clean. Metal bolts on air filter, not plastic. Block heater, 4.10 gears. 2 yr old tall cap on bed with 2 yr old Meyers quick release plow. (Only used for his driveway and parking lot of his office. Looks brand new.) I really love this truck so far. I have read about the last 10 pages of posts and researched the Egde tuner a bit.
Questions:I have heard the Edge tuner is not good for your tranny. Should I take it off and put on a DP tuner or leave it since it is already there? I see down pipes are a very popular mod as well as eliminating the cat and muffler. Does this make a noticeable difference? I am not interested in making this a "performance" truck or making it louder. Just want to keep it reliable and set up in the best way to tow my 12,000lb boat.
Great site and I hope to be able to contribute once I learn more about this rig.
