DP Tuner With HID's

Hey everyone,

Looking to order my Dp Tuner very soon..... so i've been doing lots of research on the tuner and ran into the problem with the HID's.

My first question is.... Anyone running a DP Tuner with HID's not experience this problem? Or is it on every single truck with this set up

My second question is... I was reading about the solution to this problem by putting some kind of electronic reducer in your wires somewhere in order to by pass the surge from the HID's..... SO what is the part called, where do I install it etc...

Any help would be awesome........ Saying no HID's isn't an option lol

thanks in advance.

I don't think All their products are effected, the problem was with earlier hardware. I'm not sure it's even an issue anymore....

Have you looked in to PHP? I've never used DP but I have used PHP and they haven't had problems like this. Jay is really active on here if you want more info on their company or how they can help you, also he's been super helpful to me.

It's not a problem I've heard anymore, that is going back a little while.

Before you order though, if you want to see the colours of the two companies I suggest you take the time to go read the DP and PHP chip thread that is very big in the performance section right now.

The type of responses in there may surprise you, and they touch on this issue

leave that out of this thread...it dosent answer the OP's question.

and the problem is with the older F5 units, the new ones are fine both the F8 (I think its called) and the infinity.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

The answer to the OP's question from DP IS in that thread.

And since PHP has already been suggested twice in this thread, it doesn't seem like a bad idea to show the OP where to go to form his own opinions if he is so inclined
