id bypass the power pup and head straight for dp-tuner or tony wildman for tuning. You can get 3 tunes from either vendor, make more power and be much happier.

If you are interested in Dp-Tuner or to check pricing, I highly recommend ITP. Click Me for ITP Diesel Click me for Tony Wildman

Raul (who posted before me) can hook you up with a good exhaust for a good price as well.

Dont forget when you start looking at chips, you'll need some sort of MAP fooler as boost levels above 22 or so will throw an SES code. (Dont also forget gauges before installing any tunes)

Yea I was reading your mod list and saw your ITP mod and went back to check it out.. I will ask them what all i need when I order the chip, I dont want to push the motor and tranny to hard but still want good power... Gauges are a necessity.. other that exhaust temp what do you recommend on a triple pillar pod?

The most common triple is EGT, Boost, and Tranny temp. Myself, I have this as well and feel it lets me monitor what I need for now.

And I would definatly stay away from the Power Pup. The only thing that I liked about mine was the difference from stock; however, I didn't like how it shifted no matter what I did to it...just made me uncomfortable.

Now if I go with the ID-tuner do I need the super lift re calibrator or is it like a car.. where you tell tuner you have a certain size tire and rear end gear he can add that to the tune.
