It would be good to know what type of truck you have, but IMO you need to see what's going on with a set of gauges even if you're takin it easy with the truck.. you never know what can come up

I'm pretty sure that any body on the org would say that it's not a good idea to run a programmer without any gauges, better to be safe then messing your truck up.

So, I decided to get gauges first, and then play around with my trucks hp.

Thanks for the advice.
