if i swap a #17 hpop pump onto my 96, do the resister mod, and the fuel pressure mod with the bb, would i notice a nice power boost.
That would do more than the combo you stated.put a good exhaust on it, intake, gauges, and a tw chip on it and it will really wake it up
No, not really.if i swap a #17 hpop pump onto my 96, do the resister mod, and the fuel pressure mod with the bb, would i notice a nice power boost.
Umm...No, not really.
- The resistor mods merely change the temperature reading for the ECM which "might" yield a little more fuel fromt he injectors but that's only in low end. Once you max out the injectors, you're done adding power.
- The HPOP won't give you any benefit unless you install bigger injectors.
- The fuel pressure mod is not what it seems like. Unlike on gasser engines where the fuel pressure actually affects the amount of fuel injected into the engine, our injectors use the high-pressure oil to do so. So no, fuel pressure increase won't give you any noticeable power boost.
- Chip vs programmer? A programmer is well suited for a stock engine and its price is very friendly ($200 nowadays). A custom chip will run you closer to a thousand and a lot of haggling with the programmer who might take several tries to tune the chip to your specific truck (mailing that thing back and forth). A chip is more benefitial if you have big upgrades to the engine (injectors and such).
Hope this answers some questions.
A HPOP will give gains even with stock injectors.
The best custom tuned chips can be had for under $500, NOT $1000. And it is not much of a hassle at all. Some tuners dont make you mail it back, they can send the new tunes in an email.
Please dont put a programmer on a 7.3lease: You may like it at first, but it will take a toll on your truck. Also, the first time you ride in a truck with custom tunes expect to rip out that programmer and get custom tunes. I know, I have used both.
What programmer is $200??? I would not trust whatever it is.
Those are generic tunes, I wouldnt get those Id go straight to custom tunes
