Yes you can run the 140 tune, but can you take advantage of every bit of that power???? Doubt it. That tune calls for a lot of oil, and the stock HPOP probably won't keep up. You'll know for sure when it feels like it's falling on its face at high rpm's.

Also watch the EGT's, the 140 tune can make temps climb. By the way, do you have gauges?

Early 99 have 120cc injectors vs 140cc. They also have a 15 deg. HPOP vs. the 17 deg. in the late 99 and up. It has a different turbo but not necessarily worse. The sheet metal intakes are smaller diameter like the OBS trucks have (not sure on the size 2" maybe) and the late 99 and up have 3" intakes

The biggest difference as far as power goes comes from the injectors.

The late 99 has 2 big relays on top of the engine on the passenger side and the early 99 only has 1. The reason for the difference is that the late 99 has an Intake Air Heater (IAH) which is powered by one of the relay's. The early 99 does not have an IAH so it only has the glow plug relay (GPR)

You can also look for the IAH in the intake spyder. Joe has a good pic of it, I will see if I can find it.


Found it.

Or you can look at the VIN sticker on your door for the build date. Mine is 7-12-98, signifying an early 99 model. I don't remember the exact cutoff date on them though. :grd
