its a cheap way to up the fuel pressure, and get a little more power if you dont have a programmer.

in yor sig, you say you have a programmer, so dont waste your time with the resistors.

If you have a tuner already then you are better off!

I knew a guy that did this resistor mod with his edge tuner and completely fried his $600 tuner.

It does but it can also make the truck way to touchy on the go pedal. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. THats why I put it on a switch!

so doing this would pretty much be like a tony wildman smoke tune with alot of smoke and not much power and a very jumpy pedel and a big *** lope?

Dont do a resistor mod with a custom tuned chip, it will be completely worthless and could just mess stuff up

It messes with the ICP pressure, you can do it if you cant afford a chip cuase its a cheap way to gain a couple horsepower but if you have a chip you dont want to have it on there
