Just Ordered a TS 6position!

I just ordered a TS 6 position chip from xpd. I hope I can get it to the house and installed by the end of the weekend. I drive a lot for work and fuel prices are starting to kill me. I search a lot of OBS threads and I should know better by now but I went ahead and ordered the chip before ordering gauges. I know, I know.
I guess Im looking for someone to tell me that I should be alright running the 50hp setting until I at least get a pyro gauge.?? I drive like a grandpa most of the time as I don't want to thrash on the ol girl. Also, from what I've read the 75hp to 100hp settings are the best for MPG's. Unless your a hot rod. My goal is better Economy and some extra sack isn't going to be bad either.

you can't hurt that thing with just a chip.....all you get is about 50 hp over stock, unless you change injectors, as the 97's and older trucks have very small injectors.....the only place you might come close to doing any damage is towing on a hot day and running full throttle up a long hill...I wouldn't recommend towing without a pyro...and they are very easy to install...slide underneath and drill a hole right where you can GET the drill into the exhaust manifold boss and thereyago...
