Can i get away with buy this chip and not have guages for awhile till i get some??? I Tow about 13,000lbs.
Your braver than I am. I check mine constantly.Not saying its a good idea, but if you listen to the motor and drive with some sense, you'll be fine.
20 passes might mean it gets hot for a few seconds. OTOH, you don't know how hot it gets so you are in ignorance. Quarter mile is less than 20 seconds. Total time is probably like 10 seconds where it is over the limit. After which it can cool off. 5 mins of 1400 degrees and it might just blow a piston. Why risk it?
Probably a good idea. They really are cheap compared to engine parts.thanx guys only reason i asked is i got a redneck guy who has a truck and put the stupid edge chip on 100hp setting and he doesnt have any guages and ran it up the 17 towards Flagstaff goin 80mph up those hill with 13,000bs behind him and his trucks still runs good. I'm just going to get guages first i guess.
