Can someone fill me in

I have 06 psd and I have straight pipe with cai I have a sct tuner and I've herd alot of horror stories about chipping these 6.0s I don't drive this truck hard at all If anything I'm easy on it would running it on street cause me any problems? Also has anyone just shut there egr off with sct and not actually blocked it off. Thanks guys

Re: Can someone fill me in

i did the same but I also monitored the EOT ECT temps and before my warranty was up I camped at the dealer until they replaced my oil cooler and EGR cooler because I had a 15 degree split
but by the time they were done I had the head gaskets done also .

the cooler wasn't the fault of the tunes and I don't think i needed head gaskets but who was I to argue ? I had them stud it and put in a bpd cooler

shutting off the egr is better than not doing it but it still lets hot exhaust into the cooler
just not into the engine intake

if you have an sct I would recommend matt from gearheads tunes

Re: Can someone fill me in

The oil cooler would be your down fall, not the tunes. Coolant filter should be one of the first things done. Plugged oil cooler is the start of lots of problems.

Re: Can someone fill me in

While custom tunes are better than canned ones, no one can tell you if your truck is going to blow up if you chip it.. You say you baby your truck, that is the worst thing for a 6.0.. IMO, it is better to use the trucks stock power and drive it normally as well as WOT it several times a week to keep the turbo and EGR system clean..

Chipping a 6.0 is like walking within striking distance of a rattle snake, you may not get bit, but chances are you will..

That could be a couple of things.. EGR valve full of soot or your turbo may need cleaning..
