DP Tuner

I love the DP tuner i bought, so much that i don't want to take it off the 120 setting. I got the BTS valve bodies. Should i be worried for my tranny's sake or the injectors if i am driving around on that setting all the time? Thanks

Nope...if Jody knew you had a BTS valve body...then coding for that is already built into Jody's tunes.

Now...if you are getting sideways at each green lights...and racing everything that moves under the sun...then yeah...you could have tranny issues later down the road.

The injectors don't care, they just deliver whatever fuel they are asked to. The transmission should be fine. My stock box with the dreaded "diode" is holding up ok. I build a VB and a few other do-dads and put a good converter in it.

i'm worried about my tranny temp gauge, takes it awhile to warm up. Sits at 100 for the first 5-10 min, even after i let the truck warm up for a few. Is that normal?

That just might be the tranny fluid warming up also. In the winter my tranny gauge barely moves. During the summer when its good and warm the tranny warms up quick and my gauge comes to life quick.

You'll take it off soon enough - when you have to replace the tires

They are fantastic additions to the truck, though, aren't they!!!
