First of all thanks so much for the response, fast too!
Okay so gauges first, right i was pretty sure i would need to get them and get the EGT, boost, and trans, my friend that used to have a chip did not use gauges at all but when i seemed interested he told me i should get them. Any idea what type of gauges i should get? is there some good cheap ones so i dont have to drop a ton on just gauges?
So i can put off the exhaust and the intake for a while? or i don't need to get them before i get the chip? What does this really mean, ive herd that you can screw things up if you use the chip without them, or just tear away at the life of your engine without them.
Thanks for the info on the exhaust and the intakes i think ill go with a AFE intake and im really not sure about exhaust yet ill have to shop around. Any ideas on how much install would be on a new intake or exhaust or is it something i could get near doing? i know the exhaust would be something i probably could not touch.
So the tranny, ouch, so i would have to get my tranny entirely rebuilt? that sounds expppeeeennnssiiiveee, hehe, but i might be able to handle it if it was that necessary. I don't believe my friend had his tranny rebuilt but i could be easily wrong because he is loaded, and that procedure would be pocket change for him, unfortunatly though im not as fortunate =P
Hypothetically if i only used the high chip settings sparingly could i keep my stock tranny or only rebuild a certain area, it just seems hard to justify spending so much to rebuild the tranny just for black smoke =P
I don't normally tow very often maybe once a month or a little more. So i would probably get no tow or only 1 tow setting, if i did get no tow setting on a DP could i ever send it back with 50$ and ask for one to be added?
Alot more questions lol, thanks so much in advance to anyone that attempts to help me out!
