hey guys first time diesel owner here, ok built a few gassers and well you know the drill more power= less gas mileage, well how come all the tuners claim that by adding power there fuel mileage goes up? i mean i was doing a little searching and cant thing of the name but DP or something like that has an 80 hp economy setting???? haha if i added 80 hp to my srt i would lose 2-3 MPG, what gives on a diesel? and while i am on the topic....
i have a 97 4X4 ex cab auto bla bla bla... all stock except the superchips micro tuner ok here is the deal i did not buy the truck to race, i have a 10 sec bike for that lol... but i do want to "tweak" it just a little my plans are 3" (or the largest that fits) DP, and a set of twin 6" stacks, some kind of intake and maybe a few other things nothing major its just really a daily driver, and a toy hauler (quads, bikes, and the srt to track everyonce in a while)
what do you guys reccomend for my truck? i want to add a little power but really care more about its reliability than its power i would also like to be able to make a little black smoke every once in a while.....ok a lot haha!
i was thinking that 6 pos. chip that is advertised on here there are like 9 options, i was thinking
2) high idle (since i dont have a block heater
the 140 sounds good but will a stock motor handle this?
