Know i have an 01 f350 on 37s with 430 gears and a dp chip and i can beat him by about a truck length everytime. would unlugging his waste gate help or hurt his turbo any answers....he isnt trying to make his truck a "race truck" we just dont understand what the deal is...thanks for all the help

tell him to dump that generic chip and get a custom tuned chip that will take full advantage of his mods....

he needs something that is tune dto his bigger turbo and injectors.. the TS chip is tuned for a regular truck.....

it wont matter

just tell him to stop trying to do small stuff like that and just get a DP or TW chip that is custom tuned to those mods.. make sure he tells them about the BD shift kit too so it gets tuned to that.....

but seriously... with the power hes gonna be making he should start saving up for a fully built BTS or JW trans that is gonna be in the 5k+ range
