Chip question

I have a rebuilt 7.3 with stage 1's d66 and adrenaline. My question is I have an old out of the box hypertec chip that was in my truck before the engine rebuild, can I put it back in the truck with out hurting anything? Currently I don't have the money to get a custom tuner for the truck and am running with no chip or tuner. I would like the power from the chip but don't want to hurt anything. I do have gauges now which I didn't have before the engine rebuild.

Re: Chip question

You need some custom tunes for those stage 1's. How does it run now? I wouldn't mess with a hypertech after you spent how many thousands on the rebuild?

Re: Chip question

Runs okay now. I ran it with the chip for a day and throttle response was a lot better and probably 10psi more boost but also a lot more smoke. I know I need custom tune but it's just not in the budget right now. I pulled the chip out that day because I was unsure if it would hurt something.

Re: Chip question

I figured as long as I watch the egt's it should be okay but wanted to check and see what everyone's thoughts were.
