ok im new to the deisel thing, im a hot rod guy, with that said is this a stupid question lol whats the difference between a programmer and a chip? a local guy here said i can stack the plug in banks 6level chip with my edge cs programmer. Is that safe or can it damage anything?
the waste gate is blocked to allow higher boost,that way the pcm doesntr read the boost level and defuel.

so in my programming for the juice i should turn defueling off? i think a lot of this chip not giving me the results i want is do to me not knowing what the f im doing lol. and not tunning this right. I was under the impression that if the waist gate is left open it would push the heads off this thing.
hey, im going to change my t case oil, any suggestions or instruction. roughly how many quarts and whats the best to use. 2000 f350 with 7.3L believe its a 4 speed auto, dash say 1 2 and 3 with overdrive around 3. lol if that makes since
The t-case takes about 2 quarts of ATF. You should use a good quality ATF or even synthetic ATF.
Be careful when you pull the lower plug out to drain it. It's aimed toward the back of the truck and will spurt out about 2' before it hits the ground. Make sure you have your drain pan positioned correctly. (Don't ask how I know that ).
The manual and automatic trannies use basically the same t-case.
lol so you werent lying aboyt the 2 foot thing. almost got me lol thanks for the help, previous owner didnt change or upkeep anything, oil was black and there was maybe a quart. same with the rear diff, low and nasty, trans was black and filter looked like it had gelish gew on it. air filter was so plugged and dirty that it was half collapsed. thing is runnung awesome now that all the fluids and filters are done, added the edge chip and banks exhaust with down pipe, ive gained 7 miles to the gallon and everyhting shifts perfect and runs excellent... im pumped. thanks everyone for the help......
Good to hear that you have turned a sick and ailing truck and get it well again.
It does show the NEED for the changes that you listed.

It riles them to believe

And keep on thinking free
yes indeed, todays project was the rear driverside calliper and rotor, the rotor was worn so bad that the smooth part was gone and it wore into the center splines of the rotor, no smooth surface left. it almost looked as if someone put it back together without a pad. unbelievable, it ripped the back piston right out of the calliper, dumped the brake fluid and lost brakes while i was backing my flat bed into the driveway, just ten minutes before that i was towing an extended cab 3/4 ton chevy in the snow threw the hills with the family in the truck. imagine if it would have blown then. kind of scary... on a good note my new profile picture i tool today before the tow would make a ford commercial as the chev sits on my trailer like a rock lol
