A lot depends on how the chip was set up, built trans, more fuel, etc.

You'll want to have the same PCM code as the chip was tuned for.

If none of this matches your set up, you'll have to send it off to have it tuned for your vehicle.

These are instructions on how to install, but the # is on the side of the pcm. You have to take it out to read them.

If you take a mirror, you can actually read the PCM code pretty easily. Look on the fender side of the connector, under the hood below the Master Cylinder, with a flashlight reflected into the mirror. No need to disconnect anything.

It's in the largest font, 4 characters, mostly letters (my '02 is VDH4)

Plan on getting custom tunes made specifically for your truck(mods/pcm) then.
