I've decided to purchase my first chip soon and it's pretty obvious people here prefer DP/TW chips. I've already picked out my tunes from both chips and just stuck on which one i'm going to get. But as far as the DP chip goes i have a few quick questions...
My truck's engine is entirely stock btw
Both the DP and TW are good. I think more guys go with TW though. You should also look into the SCT with tunes from Innovative Diesel.
Would running the 140hp Aggressive/Extreme tune damage my engine since it is entirely stock? If i were to run it say...ten minutes at a time tops. Maybe a couple times a week just to show off.
Do you have guages? You could really do some damage if your EGT"s get too high! You also run the risk of blowing a head gasket because the stock head studas are not gonna stand up to jarring down on a tune.
Does the 120hp Race tune smoke like crazy? It may be childish but i'm definitely looking to throw ALOT of coal around whenever i'm in the mood.
What the heck is a lope idol tune?
Kinda makes it sound like a gasser with a big cam.
And does the 80hp Econo tune really increase horsepower and MPG? Seems great but i'm not really sure how that works.
You will get better mileage from the higher horsepower tunes. You just have to learn to keep your foot out of it.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
