I'm not sure I am looking to go the hydra chip route.
I don't think I am going to be doing a whole lot of modification to my truck. I currently have a 4" down to a 5" straight system. Running a 6 speed manual. Probably the most performance upgrade I could see myself doing in the future would be an intake if I think I can squeeze a little more economy out of it by doing so.
I filled out the online contact form for kT performance with some questions and had no response as of yet. I am looking to buy a chip soon. I am just not sure which tunes I should go for. I am looking for a fuel economy type tune for sure, I am only getting around 15 mpg and would like to see a bit better and I also do some towing and might like to have some higher power type tune. Why is it that the higher power tunes aren't the towing tunes? Is it because of EGTs? With my exhaust system would it be much concern doing some heavier towing with some higher HP tunes? I am open to suggestions on tunes.
If I did an intake modification in the future would that require a tuning change? What type of boost numbers would I expect to see with some of these tunes? Is the chip the only hardware needed or would I need any sort of boost fooler type device? I am guessing the hip takes care of it all in the computer
Thanks for the help, do you sell the 6 position with tunes or is it best to go with KT performance?
