VA 180HP 1st impression

I plugged in the new 180Hp VA I recieved today from Dominator Performance Diesel. I had the PPE Hot already loaded on max(always is). So this review about the PPE Hot/VA Hot stack.

Regular driving: can't tell the difference between the 130hp and the 180hp. Same engine sounds and tranny shifts the same.

W.O.T: WOW there is more power!!! Feels like alot more than the 50hp that the numbers state, I'd say closer to 100hp(a guess though), at least on my truck. My boost also went up. With the carter pump running I had no bursting or shifting problems. Feels just like the 130hp program but with more power.

For you guys stacking and have a tranny upgrade, I think this is a great step forward for the LLY. Might be a good N2O/aftermarket turbo tune, sure runs great on my truck.

I'll try it alone in the next couple of days, might be hard for me to reduce the stack though

I'd like to get mine upgraded, but if there is going to be a 200+ tune, I would wait. Can the release of a 200+ tune be confirmed?

This 180HP fuels hard. Doing some more stacked PPE/VA 180 driving during the day, and I'm not cleaning up the smoke at 45psi. The old stack PPE/VA stack cleaned up with no smoke at all. Looks like some studs and turning up the boost are in order.

Installed it tonight....runs good alone....31psi all by itself without my cold air intake. I'll know more tomorrow. The 6" of snow isn't going to help much!
