i have a few questions about my truck. first- when i go wot the rpms get close to the redline. will this cause the service engine light to come on or is there something else. second-when i bought the truck it had a superchips and an edge juice already installed. but the guy took out the edge pyro and put in an analog gauge. will this cause the edge to not perform the best. and finally-when i stomp on the throttle the egt's almost instantly climb to 11-1200. what would be a cheap and easy way to lower the egt's. thanks in advance. :confused:

Sell the Edge and the Superchips, and get a custom chip from one of the sponcers.

Your truck will thank you.

Not really cheap, but you may come close to breaking even.

Buy a custom chip from someone here. If you can sell the JUNK that's on it that will be a blessing. But even if you keep one to read codes only get a custom tune. It just might save your eng & trans.

Get some guages first. This is a MUST have.

most chips 140hp max. usually... not to many can tune more than that.. need a few suporting mods to make that much more hp.

all i have is a cold air intake and the superchips and edge. im just starting the build up. i want around 500 for now until i can get a new block and build it the way i want it. i would eventually like to break 1000 with the fully build motor.

I would call up one of the sponsors on here and talk to them about your hp goals and they'll get you set up. Any one of them are great companies to deal and will steer you in the right direction. Its gonna cost a decent amount to get to 500hp.
