A programmer flashes its program on to the PCM, exchanging the stock program into the programmer.

A chip plugs on to the PCM and causes it to use the program on the chip instead of what's on the PCM.

I don't think you can "stack" a chip with a programmer, because the chip's program will replace what the programmer has installed on the PCM.

You can stack either a chip or a programmer with some of the devices that install in the sensor (such as ICP) wiring. They change the signal going to the PCM.

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.

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.

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.

I would NEVER lie about something like that. Glad you got it squared away without having to clean up a mess.

Thumbs up

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
