Big G Module

Hey guys. You all are getting me into these mods on my mostly stock PS.
I was givin a Big G module to put on py 01. It is the fuel miser one. 50 hp and 150 lbs tourqe. I read some threads on here about stock head bolts and to much psi. Does this seem like a mild enough mod or should I worry about damage with 250k miles? My truck runs great and only has a open air intake for after market mods.

Thanks....Dan

Re: Big G Module

Don't even bother with it. It's just a sensor fooler for the ICP and the oil temp sensor.

Get a real chip or programmer that will do much much more.


As for power increases, your heads will be fine with whatever chip you do throw in there.

Re: Big G Module

Very good. Thank you. I guess I'll give it back to him...if he don't want it maybe ebay will help.

I can tell on here what the better chips are...yes I'll buy from a sponsor

Re: Big G Module

If it's just been given to you, run it. If you're not in a financial situation to buy anything right now, then go ahead and install it. It's not going to hurt anything. If anything, it will give you a greater appreciation for actual tuning that comes with a programmer or chip.....vs. just fooling sensor inputs.

EDIT:

Those "signal corrupting devices" DO work ok. Ok as in, they make a noticeable difference.

Re: Big G Module

Thanks guys. I will run it for now.

I checked into some mods and like the options of the Edge Attitude. I have heard their not all thier cracked up to be. I also liked the DP F5 16 position shift on the fly....and $200 ain't bad at all.

Would I be better off with the DP or is the options and info screen with the Edge better?

Re: Big G Module

dp chip will be way stronger then an edge.
