New with questions.....

Hey guys. I joined here not too long ago (right after i bought my first diesel) and have a few questions for ya. I have a pretty good handle on gas engines, but this is a whole new world! I straight piped (stock size) and put in a superchips tuner. It's set on the lowest level (70hp, 100tq) but am i gonna tear anything up with it? I plan on getting gauges soon, and drive nice now till then, but still curious.

Also, does anybody know what tranny i have (or how to find out)? I don't know anything about them and want to know if it's gonna last or if it's a piece of crap. I don't plan on beating anything up, but there are those times when you get some little punk with a V6 who thinks they're cool and you have to show them they aren't!!

Thanks a bunch for ANY info.

If you have a 7.3, which from your avitar I think you do, you have a 4r100, not the best tranny, but can take some power and abuse

Be careful running a chip without guages. Those EGT's can shoot up there when running higher settings. I messed around a little with mine on a 60hp setting, and no problems, but I would NOT stay in it very long. Get you and good intake or Tymar DIY intake, exhaust from Farmboy if you want a good exhaust and a great price, and guages! Then start pickin on people. LOL

It's a 2003 7.3. How do you get all the info at the bottom of the post? I filled it out and thought it'd be there, but guess not. Like i said, i drive real nice right now due to not having any gauges. Plan on getting some soon. Also plan on gettin a new intake, but i've heard lots of bad things about using oiled filters and MAF sensors so i don't want to go that route. Rather use paper. But that's in a few months...

Got it. Thanks a bunch.

Anybody got any good ideas for gauge pods? I'm lookin at the pillar mounts, but i like the handle there and would like to mount the gauges somewhere else. I've seen the ones that go right in front of the factory cluster and those look interesting, but don't know if they would block the view of everything else down there...

There is a 3 pod cluster that goes over the rear view mirror as another option.
