Can you guys tell me if this is right??

I found a truck that I am lookin into here near omaha ne. I asked the guy if it had a chip n his response was

" there is a defuser chip, does not work well for the fact that the map sensor on fords make it defuel which actually causes you to lose alot of power. you can only turn the chip up a quarter of the way to run good and quick."



Can you all help me out idk muck about diesels im just startin to get into them thanks alot

PS im a new member to the club..my name is Luke S.um........im a Volunteer firefighter in Ft Calhoun.........I am goin to school for arch. engineering

first off welcome to the Org

Dfuser does sell a simple chip... it defuels once you hit around 25psi....

is he running gauges with it? if not thats a big NO NO... i would never buy a truck that i didn know the owner that has a tuner or chip in it.... you never know how hard it was used....
