I have an 06 big horn cummins with a Bully Dog PMT. I finally got the chip to work and it puts down so much power that the rpm's just fly up because the clutch is spinning. The rig only has 54,000 miles and dosent slip when its on the tow mode. When on performance or extreme modes I can only give about a third to half throttle or else the clutch cant hold it. I think that the motor is putting out between 400 to 450 hp on the high settings. Any ideas about what to do?
Thanks everyone! :93C_peelo

the G56 clutches wont hold much more than stock, time to upgrade to a better clutch.

Its all part of making more power, figure out what kinda future mods your going to do to the truck and find a clutch that suits your needs. Southbend makes some great clutches, check em out.

I think that it was probably an installation issue. Or you got one too small or slipped it way to much. Peter should work with you and get it to work right
