Just bought truck... has chip... need help...

I recently purchased a 2001 F350 with a 7.3L. I pulled the computer out and I found a gold colored chip installed. It is a Superchips. On the inside on a small paper tag there is hand writen "PMT2_OR.E2T". The dot maybe a small case "i". The handwriting is pretty bad.

Can anyone tell me what this means and what it is doing to my truck. I am gonna leave it stock for now until I get more info. Thanks!

The rest of the truck is pretty much stock exept for a K&N stock style airfilter. The exhaust is 3 1/2 inch, which I assume is stock.

Please help out a Diesel NOOB!!!

Thanks!

The chip is an old school 60 or 80 hp chip. They work pretty well. Get the K&N out ASAP. Go back to a stock filter for the time being. 3.5 is stock. Congrats on the new rig.

Oh, and that number sounds like your PCM code.

They let way too much dirt in to blast your turbo with. They are fine for gassers, but not diesels.

Could something be damaged.....

I have already done the DIY intake. There was ALOT of oil in the intake tube that I assume is from the oiled filter cause the air box is dry.

Is it ok the leave that chip installed without gauges and bigger exhaust? (I am working on that stuff but dont have the buget right now. My 1 1/2 year old baby boy come first when it come to $$$.) Will it get too hot? Also, what kind of gas mileage difference between stock and the gold chip?

Good advice about the K&N Logan.. but it's not just the turbo. These engines have a lot more compression, plus the air that is entering the cylinders is being blown in there, not sucked, so even a little bit of dirt, sand, etc can act like a sand blaster over time.

I never had too much trouble with my gold chip. You can always go cut your muff off and weld in a piece. Make it a straight pipe. And the DIY intake is a good one. I would still get some guages ASAP.

You should be fine as long as you don't tow any really heavy loads. Gauges are great, though! If it's the 80 hp, and you have the factory down pipe, You may want to keep loads below a few thousand lbs.

What does it change?

Does the chip just change the way the engine performers or does it make changes to the trans. as well? Is there a way to tell at what HP rating it is set with those numbers (PMT2-OR.E2T)? Anybody know what changes to mileage it might make?

Thanks a ton guys!!! I am learning a lot!!!
