I'm looking seriously at DP's F6 chip. Don't know who I talked with @ DP yesterday but didn't get satisfactory answer on mounting the "Switcher". I have 7 gauges in my '02 SD, 3 on top of dash, 3 in a pod below and an X-Monitor on the pillar. Sounds as tho the Switcher, required for the F5 or F6 chip needs to be mounted in a gauge pod. If so, my gauge pods are all spoken for. Can someone who has an F5 or F6 installed enlighten me a bit? Would appreciate seeing pics of same in a real truck. A simple rotary switch would make me happy but DP doesn't have that option. Thanks for ideas & help ... this is a great forum.
Hearing this, I am thinking you may have called some other company instead of us. This actually happens all the time. We have dealers that have similar company names to ours. The reason I say this is because it is only Jody (owner), Diane (owner), and myself over here at DP-Tuner. All of us have a lot of knowledge on our products and would have been able to answer your questions, to your satisfaction.
If in fact you did call us, I apologize on our behalf if we weren't able to get you the answers you were looking for.
Somehow, I never got notification of this mention. Hense, why I am just now seeing and responding to this thread.
Thanks though Jasper.
RT, thanks for the info. That settles it for me, I think. The guy I talked with yesterday at DP must be a new employee. He knew almost nothing about the chip or options. I'll try to talk to Justin Monday and get the F6 headed out here. By the way, I made a small effort to uncover my computer code but the cover didn't want to slide off after removing the 2 screws on the inside of the cab. The cover slips back 1/4" and stops. Can't see that it's hanging up on anything. Didn't think it was necessary to unhook under the hood just to look for the PCM code. Can you suggest anything? Force? Makes me nervous. I read somewhere that on '02s only the inside screws needed to be removed to uncover the PCM and see the code.
Again, I am thinking you may have called one of our dealers. If it was actually us, I do apologize.
Usually what the cover gets hung up on is the cable located above the PCM. Sometimes you have to move the cable, or wiggle the PCM/case at a different angle to get it out.
Got my F6 chip with 5 tunes 4 days ago. Installed it over the weekend and it's still in the "testing" stage but it's looking and feeling pretty good. I mounted the "Switcher" flush in the dash, right of steering column, just below the speedo. That worked out well & looks good to me. I'm happy.
Glad you are enjoying it. Sorry for the delay in response to this thread. I did not get notification of Jasper's mention, as I said above.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact me direct. All of my contact info should be in my sig. You can get a hold of me by PM, e-mail, or phone. I would be happy to help you out.
