dp f5 chip questions

Ok so just got my truck and the only mods done are a 7 inch stack and an aftermarket remote start. I was looking into chips and tuners and im leaning toward the dp f-5 chip because I have seen alot of good reviews. Im sort of new to the diesel world so I was just wondering if i should do any other mods before I get the chip. I figure I would get better results from the chip if I upgrade the intake and the injectors but I dont have that kind of money right now so will I still get good results with everything else being stock or will I just be wasting my time? Also wondering if I will run into mechanical issues later on from running the chip on a stock truck?

You will want to do gauges to monitor EGT's. On a truck that is this old you will want to check the truck out prior to doing anything to it. Anything mechanically wrong will just be emphasized.

I think it's worth it to go with the F6 so that you can easily have updated or additional tunes emailed to you.

Gauges are considered a must, but even more so if you can't afford intake and exhaust yet. The restrictions there will almost for sure result in high EGT's

Check out the Hydra chip...

Power Hungry Performance Hydra Chip

Better chip, better tuning and cheaper... Not to mention anyone can send you tunes for a Hydra...

Do the math, to order a DP chip and "load it" your over $700+... You get the same thing with the Hydra for $375... and its better tuning, better options and you can run anyones tunes...
