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

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.
