Dangers of running a chip w/ stock exhaust?

I just got a package deal from Stealth with intake, exhaust, and TW chip. I installed the intake and chip since I was able to do that alone since I had no other help. It seems I wont be able to get around to the exhaust for a few days. Im not beating on the truck or running it hard to run EGTs high or anything like that. My question is will I be ok for now? About the most work it will get right now is towing a pig trailer(about #4000) for a few hundred miles on flat roads. I should be ok using the tow mode but just looking for some assurance.

you probably should invest in some gauges, at least a pyro. If your not running it too hard you should be ok

yeah you will be fine. just don't turn the chip up on a high setting and dog on it continually without gauges.. (even with the new exhaust)

Ive got a set of guages but like the exhaust I wont be able to get to them for about a week. Like I said the hardest it will get worked for now is towing a small loaded trailer. Other then that Im taking it easy.

Raul i now said you need guages. Did you get them. You can do all the stuff youre self in cluding exhaust. you should be ok but be easy on the throttle my egts get real hot real fast WOT of course. the stock exhaust will not shed EGT as well as a system.

If you got gauges just keep an eye on them.. Should have no problems.

I drove for 5 months on my truck with just a chip and intake(only had for 3 Months). I just tried not to run her to hard and never had a problem, but now I have 5" exhaust...and it made a big difference in power and turbo whistle

Its not so much as not being able to put everything on....Im just running short of time. So guages and exhaust will have to wait until next week or so.

if you don't have a pyro guage installed yet, i would leave the chip in the stock position if it is a selectable one. it is very easy to get excessive egt with stock exhaust without a load. to risky IMHO. with that added power and skinny pedal response it's really hard not to "play". take away the temptation and don't worry about it.
