If you did do it, I'd do a 5k resistor.

You can always pull the resistor out in a matter of 30 seconds and then install the chip. I've heard that you could and I've heard that you can't so I really don't know.

You'll proly just mess up your icp and the pigtail for it. waste of time imo. its cool off the bat, but gets old quick. The more resistance you have (i.e. the smaller the number on the resistors) the greater the injection pressure becomes. However! The catch is when it starts high, it has nowhere to go. the truck will fall flat on its face at higher rpms. It also affects the timeing (hence the lope), which is BAD on a stock diesel's components. It also doesnt tune the trans for the hp and timing, which is bad on the torque convert and clutches. All in all the resistor mod is bad for the truck. Messes up pigtails, sensors, trans, timing.... It's cool for a very short period, then you begin to realise the toll its taking on the truck.
