OK guys gettin my new toy on FRI. I have a stock tranny stock exhaust (I think) (no cat) and K&N FIPK intake. Unfortunatly my guages won't be in until after the hollidays. What should I look out for? What level should I keep it at?
I got the Standard... the one with 5 tunes. I talked to Dan at ppe and he said EGTs don't become a problem untill stage 4 or 5 which is also the same point you would want to worry about a stock tranny.
Dan said not to tow with it and if I did keep it on level 1 and keep my foot out of it. My opinion... DON'T TOW. What I wanted to know is what others are seeing as far as EGT temps in levels 1.2.3. that have a similar set up as mine.
So everyone thinks it will be ok to run level 3 without guages? I was thinking that I should probably use level 2 while I am on vacation in the smokey mountains. If I remember correctly the steepest grade over there is like 12% but most grades are long distance.
The programmer should be here any time now and I will let all of you know how it goes. Thanks for all the help from everyone. And a Big Thanks to Dan over at PPE. I purchaced the programmer on Tuesday and got 3 day shipping because I am leaving on saturday. Well for some reason the item didn't ship out on their tuesday pick up with UPS so he sent it 2 day air for the same price!!! Thanks again
Got it in and set it to level to and I am pretty impressed with the seat of the pants feel. I can't wait to get some guages and to a tranny rebuild cause if I am this impressed with it then it only makes me want to put lvl 5 on. Maybe I should let my wife hide the programmer from me. lol
