alrighty guys, i gotta 2000 f250 and i bought a chip from tony around december and i put it on but then sent it back in january cuz he said there was a bad batch of chips that were made, but anyway i got it back in march and i use to have 4 tunes and now i have six and i dont know what they are. but one of the tunes, i guess the extreme, makes my truck shake and idle like it has a dam cam in it. the tune makes the truck wicked fast and throw alot of smoke, but the truck rattles and i dunno, it just scares me. i just wanted to know if anyone knew anything about this. o yea and also another question, does anyone know if there should be oil in your intercooler pipes that run into the turbo? i got like small puddles of it. please help me out. thanks guys!!

Sounds like the smoke tune... thats how mine is.

Extreme will do that, but the idle will clear up pretty quick.

And the oil.... you will get that unless you do the CCV mod, which reroutes your crank case vents somewhere other than through the intake.

well it does it constantly and the exhaust gets really loud, not complainin or nothing about that, and it just doesnt sound right. when i get on it, it runs great but as soon it comes back to idlin, it starts up again. i dunno if i should send it back to tony or just deal with it. is the smoke tune supossed to make it a huge gain in performance? cuz i have another tune that doesnt idle as rough but is about the same in performance. thanks for your reply

I would call tony, it should not idle like that. The extreme tune I ran from Tony, it idled fine.

My smoke and extreme tunes are different from each other.....

My old truck and cant keep up with the extreme and takes a minute to clear up the idle in EXTREME

In SMOKE it always has the lope idle deliberately.

So it sounds like the smoke tune that he is explaining....

The smoke tune I ran was the same as the extreme tune but the smoke had a lot more tip in(that amount of fuel dumped in at the beginning of the throttle movement). I thought the smoke tune was quicker since it would spool the turbo faster.
