is it a preditor chip or preditor tuner? Or is it a diablo chip?

I ran for a while. It is very agressive with the fuel and it would throw P1211 codes but it made the trans shift better than stock. Your exhaust gauge is the big thing to watch with it. You do have gauges, don't you?

fill your sig so we can tell what you have

it does not help the transmission to compensate for the added power. The 10K mod has been used for ever and it does not hurt anything as long as you watch the EGT's and keep them under 1250*. Chips like the DP and TW add line pressure to help the shift happen faster under load to compensate for the added power.

That sounds like a very good plan. You will like the added power of that chip.
