TS Problems

Anyone had any problems with the TS tuner? I get my check engine every once and a while when it'll come on for like 15-30 minutes. Anyone had anything similar?

May be an overboost condition. You'll need a MAP fooler to keep that from happening.

You most likely are overboosting the engine. The Map Sensor is reading high boost readings and defueling your engine. You can solve the problem with a map fooler. You can make one yourself or you can buy one.
Also get those gauges installed before you play around to much. Because high egts will kill your truck in no time.

But to make sure try and pull codes from the truck.
