Got my DP F8 chip

Going to install it today hopefully. Its snowing right now so i got to convince my dad to pull his Lightning out of the garage and let me pull my truck in haha.
A little nervous about doing this, i don't wanna screw up my computer and i am hoping my truck likes being tuned and i get better MPG. I am gonna try hiding the switch but still have it accessible.

i took brillo pad and scuffed the PCM down to bare metal. The only way i think you can ,ess it up is breaking it i guess, other than that its very simple to install, the bolts are a pain to reach but its easy...jsut takes a bit of itme

I got my chip in. It wouldn't start at first which scared me. Seems to be working except my check engine light is on I guess I am going to call dp tomorrow and see what's up.
Also when I had it in the 120 race position and I was in 5th gear and punched it my turbo kinda coughed and coughed, I read somewhere that it'll do that but I don't remember the fix
