Just installed my baby swamps and tunes :-)

All I can say is why didn't I do this sooner! Unbelievable difference in power over the stock 300k mile injectors. While I was in there I did valve cover gaskets UVCH's and glow plugs. The truck runs so smooth and is an animal!

Im really happy with the swamps tunes low smoke and egts are perfect. I went from barely making 15 psi boost to easily making 30. My hpop seems fine atm no cel at wot. Fuel pressure at idle is 60psi. Overall im pumped.

Hearing stuff like this keeps pushing my closer and closer to doing mine. I'm just doing the basics and still gaining more power. With mine being tuned I keep getting more and more out of it with replacing sensors and giving it some TLC.

I've been on the fence about getting these and I think I might spring on them now. I assume you had stock TS tunes before swamps, how do they compare?

No I had a superchips micro tuner (garbage) The difference in the truck is night and day, literally no comparison at all. Im very happy with the swamps tunes, they are all clean except the last tune which is an all out tune. I highly highly recommend this upgrade to anyone whos on the fence about it. Even with stock fuel turbo and hpop im EXTREMELY happy with the results.

I'm extremely happy with my baby swamps. I have a Dp f5 chip instead of swamps tunes because of the shifting I wanted for towing on extreme mountain grades but after the injector install and then custom chip install it is a completely different truck. The funny thing is a buddy of mine is using my gold superchip until he gets the money for a custom chip and had a (iirc) hypermax program flashed in and says the superchip made his like a totally different truck.

your buddy is in for a pleasant surprise when he makes the change! I feel confident that my truck will make some of the local guys who think their trucks all that look silly. Rusted fenders and all!

I just installed the baby swamps. I ran the truck to besure the installation went well. After it quit smoking an bucking around, wow the truck idled smoother and quiter. I installed the chip and well it idles ruff and I have a check engine light. I plan on pulling the chip and recleaning the contacts. Looking forward to the results.
