gauges, muffler delete and an intake mod or cold air intake.
also when putting in the chip make sure u clean the contacts on the pcm really really good with alcohol and q-tips. many people have had problems with chips just because they didnt clen the contacts well

when I installed my chip I unhooked both batteries and had the keys in the house. I wasn't taking any chances. I also made sure to ground myself so there was no static electricity.

Fill out your sig so we know what you have done. If you still have the stock intake dont use the 140hp setting or youll be pulling your air filter out of your turbo. Trust me Iv seen it dont twice its not cool but sounds cool when it happens. Also if you dont have guages dont run the chip because you might have problems and never know untill its too late. Also atleast strait pipe the stock Exh if thats what you have or the chip will actually make your truck slugish and the turbo will spool slow and you will actually lose power on some trucks.

Doesn't everyone connect a jumper cable to their big toe when they are working on their truck.LOL LOL

In all honesty I was paranoid about static electricity frying my chip so I kept touching my running board with my hand. I wasn't taking any chances.

Sure you could, but it's sure not very smart...you're still fueling over the stock settings. DON'T DO IT!!!! Get your gauges first...

All you need is one boost leak on the 80E and it wont like the extra fuel and you wont know it till ya melt something. Id wait for guages. I know it sucks but buying guages is better than buying a new turbo then buying guages and thinking that was stupid.
