I can confirm why you are looking at OLD threads, this is not a good mod, If you have a manual trans it isnt so bad but your auto probably wont shift good and it will probably cook your ICP.
When people first started doing it, it was cool, the thing to do, easy shot in the pants feel, then they had the after effect of the mod
well ive been searching around forever for a how to post that actually gives a real in depth explanation, and STILL cant find one. honestly im starting to think this is a little absurd that someone has to put this much research into this. there are dozens of people CONSTANTLY asking about 10k mods / clamp mods and all of the variants, but out of ALL the diesel forums, and all the posts that people ask question, there is no good CLEAR how to.
im not saying your wrong, but ive come across dozens of posts with people saying they have been using them for years with no problems. ive also come across dozens of posts of people confused cause there is no decent how to ANYWHERE.
i even found a site sellling a pre-packaged kit for like $80 for this exact set up. i honestly cant understand how there is no sticky post on this mod, with all the variants, explaining everything and showing people how to make and install one. theres a tread on every friggin page of people asking and there is no explanation.. this is completely frustrating cause you dont even know what to listen to when you really start searching. everyone THINKS its something different, half the people that have a 10k are so misinformed they think that all these things act the same way. i cant even get a solid answer on how to wire a clamp mod in porperly without someone leaving out details.
you have half the group in here saying it makes no difference. other people saying "oh it depends on the individual truck" which is retarded, and a small group that actally get the things hooked up correct. someone saying " it works on some trucks but not on others" is like me telling someone else " this $500 tuner may or may not work on your truck, even though it was made for it and it works on mine.
sorry for ranting and raving - but its so frustrating im about to throw my laptop. the last thread i read somebody posted a wiring diagram that said one thing, but then told someone to do it completely different.. two people spent 3 days trying to hook one up and finally gave up cause they couldnt get ANYTHING to work. honestly this should be as complicated as frying an egg but too many people are oblivious and yet still insist on giving advice.
