Flashpaq

Hey everyone, I just bought and installed the flashpaq 1805 using the economy program. My question is, what are my chances of having head gasket failure or like issues? The truck is bone stock, and I don't really hammer on the truck. Any feedback is really appreciated! Thanks!

Derek

i would say using the truck like you say you are...your no more likely to blow a gasket than a bone stock truck (but it Can happen stock too) ....you should be fine! ive got intake, exhaust, run high perf. files and even spray propane every now and then on stock bolts and gaskets

Cool, thanks for the input. That makes me feel better about having it installed. I definitely notice a big difference even in the low rpm range where I feel it was most needed. Thanks again!

On another note, has anyone noticed having extra hard cold starts (struggles to stay running for a min) with the flashpaq installed? It seems to happen in the colder temps under 30 deg F. Just curious if this is just me or a common issue. Thanks again for everyones imput.
