So my motor just let go this evening on the way home from work! Half throttle in my dd setting. Nothing dramatic, just a small pop, then sorta fluttering sound and the truck shut off. Somehow i knew what i would find when i jumped out. Oil pouring from several nice holes in the oil pan and block. 266,000 miles. Mods in sig.

I had 3 settings, tow, dd, and hot. Don't think the dd was the 80e. But the dp tuner definitely made the truck noisier than beans tunes. I had done all the work last fall got it running about exactly a year ago and ran beans tunes for bout 2 months. Yery smooth an nice to drive. Then decided to try th dp. Had a little more power, but along with crazy smoke an egt. And jumpy throttle response so bad you could hardly use the cruise. Thats my experience with the different tuners, but i do think my truck had other issues. I started losing oil pressure at idle. Mechanical gauge showed 6 psi. It would jump up when you gave it throttle, but when you got on it pretty good the pressure would head south several psi. Sorta felt more relaxed with the mechanical gauge on there. But obviously now there was a deeper issue.

was just checking to make sure you weren't running 5 year old tunes written for stock sticks etc.

oil issues could be a bad thing for sure,
gettin a new block, have you thought of going to 200 nozzels?
seems like a good time since you prob will be swapping or selling parts.

Sorry to hear about this. Not sure when you got your chip reburned. We have searched our system and can not find tunes done for a '96 with 275/100 injectors from BDP with a '96. Assuming you got the tunes redone for your mods, do you remember sending it in for a reburn to a dealer of ours? When and who? Let us know, 828-221-0076.

Thanks

Diane

just out of Curiosity, how many of those 266k miles were modded? Are you the original owner? How many miles with BDP Tunes, and how many miles with DP Tunes?

Second one in a week? Ever look at all the 7.3 to 5.9 conversions? Who tuned the majority of those?
Yes, about a week ago juniort444e blew a rod out of the block running the same tunes as the op.
