You might pull the chip back off the computer and check to make sure your mechanic took all the silicone off the connections. If your not getting good connection it might cause the chip to fluctuate from being on to not and that would cause the truck to stall.

Sounds to me like the chip was installed improperly. Like your getting a bad connection. This will cause the cut out your experincing. I suggest you remove the chip take it for a test drive. If the problem does not occur. Then you need to look at the connection of the chip and the pcm. The mechanic may have cleaned the surface to much or not enough.

If the problem occurs when your driving with the chip remove I suggest you scan for codes and have some daignostic tests done.

Disconnect the batteries remove the pcm. Look at the connection of the pcm is there a rubbery substance coating the tabs on top and bottom. If so then you need some scotch brite and remove that coating. If not are the tabs gold or silver. If they are silver then most likely the person that installed the chip cleaned the rubber coating off to much and dug into the electrical connection. This will give you a bad connection between the chip and pcm and cause your cutting out. If they are still gold then that is not your problem.

Did you buy this chip new from Bully Dog. Is it programmed for your pcm.

Our old trucks have small injectors and will not smoke that much with just a chip.

99% of the problems that develop after installing a chip are because of improper cleaning.

Ask your mechanic how he cleaned the pcm, and how many chips he has installed. You would be surprised that alot of them will just shove the chip on there. The OBS PCM boards are thicker than a super duty and because of that the chip will fit tighter and will sometimes make a connection thru the silicone, even though its a bad one. This will certainly cause the cutting out situation, especially if he didn't tape the chip in securely.
