I had the atlas 80 and it reeley did make my truck alot of fun to drive. The down side was the egt's. They would get hot very quickly. I did some fairly light towing with it and it became a pain to have to deal with. The throttle response was very nice. The turbo spooled up fast. Was fun until I worked the truck.

Ill complete the circle with a "what he said back", I later switched to the atlas 40 and I agree much better for working.

Run the Atlas 40 tune you should be fine...

Keep in mind the E-Series have a much smaller intercooler and radiator than the F-Series trucks... So heat can be an issue with tuning.

I've noticed heat issues in the past and had IDP adjust the tunes accordingly
When towing I'll be using a mild tune so hopefully I don't have any issues.

Stacking a FICM tune on will only increase the heat even further... fair warning.

FICM with Xtreme street

Well we will just have to see what the 80 brings, it is in a box at my diesel techs garage awaiting install.
Might be time to take a trip over to a mandrel bender and have a 5 inch exhaust installed, maybe do headers and a better flowing y pipe...
This hobby is expensive!!:icon_ford:

You'll love the 5". My diamond eye system fit like a champ too. I don't know how different it would fit on a van though...

Glad i came across this before i got an atlas 80. Think im gonna go with the 40 and hopefully not melt anyting. Already have innovative 180 hp program and a 5 inch straight pipe. Sounds like a jet taking off. Any ideas where it would be best to get the atlas from?

Ficmrepair will tune them but you have to send it in.
Or you can rent a tuner from Power Hungry Performance (PHP)
You can send your FICM to us directly if you are in the south east to save on shipping time.
If you are further north, Ed can definitely help you out with a bench flash.

Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions.
