ts performance 6 position chip ??'s

I have a 99 f350 w/ bully dog 4" turbo back exhaust straight piped, afe stage I intake along w/ tranny, boost and egt gauges. My question is do I have to have anything else in order to be safe w/ this chip? Also can I run the 140 hp setting w/ out worrying? I just want to be safe and this is my first diesel so better ask here.... oh and the settings I am looking to order are: stock, 50, 75, 100, 140, and high idle... what do you think??

thanks

You have all the necessary modifications for the new chip. One thing you may have to add down the road is a SunCoast torque converter & shift kit if you run your truck in the higher settings most of the time. If you have any questions, please let us know.

You need to do something with the tranny... they dont like anything above stock...

What is it? an early 99 or a late? Look at the y pipe just after the turbo, if it has a device that has wires coming out of it (two) heading to a Glow plug relay it is a later 99... more on that after we find out.

You can get the torque converter and Transgo shift kit direct from SunCoast
www.suncoastconverters.com or just give them a call at 800-868-0053. Ask for Ron or Joe.
