Thanks that helps alot Im a truck(semi) mechanic by trade so I hope everything should go pretty smooth. The only thing that conserns me is not having a step by step to go by I work better that way. Is the oil cooler an upgrade that has to be done at the same time as the studs. I havnt exactly bought a truck yet but am really looking at an 07 with a manual and he is throwing in an exhaust kit and egr delete at the same time. Is there a manual that you used to follow? Sorry for bugging you so much but just want to be clear.
Yes you can read the ECU strategy. I wasn't sure about the TCM, but I just tried reading and had no success.
To check ECM strategy: After you are hooked up to truck, on the top/left of the screen you will click on "vehicle", then in the drop down list click on "vehicle info". A pop up will appear that shows a drop down list, look for "+ ECU" and click, this will cause another drop down showing "+ CAL", click on "+CAL" and your strategy will show.
Depending on the year ECM, the first three letters will either be VXA for '03, VXB for '04, and VXC for '05-'07.
