Well...You can't turn up the fuel on a 24v as you can on a 12v, due to the VP44 being electroinc fuel injected, not mechanical. To "turn up the fuel" he will need to buy a "box" such as an Edge Comp, or BlueChip, or TST, or Quadzilla, something that Taps the pump. If you want smoke you can get a programmer, some people see quite a but out of them, but not everyone. However if he plans to get more fuel to the truck, he'll deffinitly want to buy some gauges! Fuel Pressure in these trucks is crucial!

yes, i would get gauge's first. I only had a superchip on 70hp and i pulled heavy loads w/o gauges and when i got the gauges i was really supprised that i didn;t melt something down before. But yes its all electronical, just make sure you get gauges or one that reads it for u like the edge juice.

Our trucks are completely electronic and require some sort of programmer and/or enhancement box to get more fuel.

But get gauges first! This is protect the engine from getting burned up!

Then open it up so it can breathe!

Then update you fuel system so you don't starve you VP44...

Now you can add on your fuel safely and know that you truck can hanlde it!

Edge Comp is a really good box it has done some really good wonders for my truck... (HP/TQ -> 381/826 and 379/831) :Thumbup:
