I have same year truck with Dp 6 position chip, AFE stage 2 intake, exhaust, and rebuilt tranny, and I am gonna do the stage 1s here very soon. Tempted to go to the 2s, but Im gonna resist. The stage 1s should put you around the 340-370 mark. That what I am banking on.

im assuming your running a pyro gauge as well right?

as far as your PMR's go... i would not run water/meth... i would run straight water if you want to lower egt's

stage 1's is as far as i would go with PMR's... plus a turbo upgrade....

ill be doing upgraded turbo, regulated return, and stage 1's....

sucks.. wish i could just go right up to stage 2's but oh well

powdered metal connecting rods man. Earlyy 99's had forged rods from the factory and a small batch in 2001 , but most PSD's have powdered metal rods. Its like having a baseball bat made out of particle board instead of solid hickory. Supposedly they are good up until 400-450 (lots of speculation) horsepower then they start lettin loose on you.
