Super chips (2)

Which setting would get me better fuel mpg, Setting 1, 2, or 3.
I think there called tow safe, tow performance, or high perfomance. My truck is stock. But the high perfomance setting is only 70hp, and 140torque. Would it be ok to run my truck on that since it is stock.

i would not think it will hurt anything as long as you are not hot rodding around. my edge ez is only a 60 horse box and i didn't have any problems with it when my truck was stock.

Those are figures that you may have to find out by testing mpg in all settings, with the same driving style. A friend had an 02 with the superchips on it, on the top setting it would fly and suck fuel at the same time.

You may want to get a pusher pump like a holley blue or the one BD sells, cause more fuel can reak havoc on your stock injection pump, if your lift pump isnt putting out the right pressures.

BTW-where is sw VA are you, I am from Galax.
