18K mod ok on tranny/towing?

I would like to add some power, but don't need a ton. So I was thinking the 18K defuser would be a good way to go. However I have my doubts about this type of power adder because it dose nothing as far as tranny shift points and what not.

I have a 02 F-350 7.3PSD and tow my rockcrawler to events once a month. Do you guys think I should just hold out for a DP tune?

If you're planning a dp tuner call them I think you can get single tunes for under 100bucks could be wrong but worth a call for much more performance

Thanks for the reply...

I went to radio shack and bought a 10K resistor (didn't have 18K) only to find the gain was small. Now this may be due to 38's as they are heavy, but it only makes me want to call DP tuner that much more :

The 18K is capable up to 85hp Gains with intake and exhaust done. Its Dyno proven. Do not be fooled by the name and assume adding an 18K resistor will do the job. We have very good luck with them so far. No tranny issues even when towing. The 18K does not add massive Torque but the just the right amount to wake your engine up.

Do not get me worng. There is nothing better than a custom program to fit your needs. But if you are on a Budget, the 18K coupled with MAP Max and Boost tube wiil be more than enough for most people. They are on special for all 3 pieces for $100.00 shipped.

Gimme a shout if intersted. I'll gladly go over what they can do for you, and if its what you really need. We are not in the business just to sell!

I have intake and 4'' exhaust with the 10K :shrug: IDK maybe the 38x15 tires are killing me, or the 18K is that much better???
