Running chip w/out large exhaust


Recommended Posts

I just bought a Superchip programmer and will tow about 5800lbs. probably on the first stage. I may install a temp guage to monitor the EGT. I know it depends on the pull on the truck as to the temp readings, but I am wondering if anyone can tell me how significant the temps rise or how careful I need to be in stage 1 and 2 (close to the recommended limit on 2)?? I dont need to romp on it a lot, mostly to pass. I hope this isnt to vague of a question. Im just trying to get a feel for how drastic the temps will be on this weight of a load? Thanks!!! Frank :chevy:

You'll be fine messing around with the tuner. I don't have that particular brand, but I've run two different brands and neither has really got hot enough to make me worry when I'm just hot rodding around. Now, if you're pulling a load up some long hills, well, then I'd be considering a gauge when running a tuner. That's when the heat comes on.

First, it would be nice to understand what truck and engine this programer is going on. Second anyone who goes above stock programing on a Diesel is courting BIG poroblems WITHOUT GAUGES. Most stock programs have saftey measures to prevent engine melt down. Go gain horse power you ADD FUEL more FUEL more heat, and there in lies the problem. Before using a after market programer I would GAUGE it. Outher wise you could hurt your engine. :D
