I just installed the DP Tuner thats in my signature. It makes great, push you back into the seat, power and does smoke some on the 140 extreme setting. I would tell your friend to get some gauges because egt's rise fairly quickly on the higher settings. I also found out that a weak single disc clutch is no match for the improved performance I am having to run stock setting until I get time to install a new clutch rated for more power and torque than stock.

First I gotta do something about this clutch. It's killing me not to be able to use this chip. I keep spending money on this truck and I'm going to have to hire a security guard to keep the wife from burning it down. lol. She thinks new kitchen cabinets are better than mods. I lost the new furnace argument, maybe if it had been closer to summer......

LOL...

DP Tuner all the way...

I spent 200 on tunes in the past... now that I'm stepping up injectors it's costing a bit more for custom files... still less then 400 for 3 tunes and a new F5 chip.

I was about to hunt a 2nd job for more mod coin but I got a call friday evening thats most likely going to be good for me and not so good for the other mechanic. Lots of things I want to do and having the keys and the use of the big truck shop will be nice.
