Automatic or manual trans? Never done this either way so not sure.
also if im driving and shift to nuetral it revs up then goes back down. Guess it's an auto cause mine does this. No big deal. Not sure why.
truck came with a hypertech tuner havent installed it yet but was wondering what the difference between a tuner chip is as far as installation power gains mpg how they work and what they do to the computer Don't use it. A lot of them do roughly the same thing. Some just fool the computer but some actually tune it. Change timing, ICP pressures (read up on the HEUI system that you have for firing your injectors and it'll make sense.) Get a custome tuned chip that is tuned for exactly what is on your truck and what you want your truck to do. Much safer.
and i hear about ulsd possibly not having proper lubrication additives what can i add to it to ensure proper lubrication
i wouldnt mind blowing a little extra smoke either
Has less sulfur and other stuff. You can run most any fuel additive to help. I don't and I've got 317k miles but if you want it won't hurt at all. A lot of ppl run powerservice dieselkleen. Smoke is not cool. It's hurting our image. Now, if you make 500HP then you're gonna blow smoke. But if you make stock HP and blow smoke, you're dumb.
what is an egr and what does it do and what are the pros and cons to deleting it
You don't have one. It's the same as an EGR on a gas engine only dumberer.
pros and cons to using a bov and is it possible?
Yea possible, no one hardly has one.
and what is surge?
Around 1800-2100 RPMs (don't remember what boost pressures) and under load, the turbo is trying to compress more and more air but the way the compressor wheel is designed, it can't and air is being pushed in but also escaping out backwards. If it's really bad, it can damage your compressor wheel. A wicked wheel can help fix it if you want to.
like i said im new to this so any info helps even if it aint about the stuff i asked
You're gonna love this truck.
If you wanna chip it, I'd do a better intake and free-er flowing exhuast, gauges to monitor your trans temp, boost pressure, and exhaust gas temps, THEN chip it to make sure you don't hurt anything.
