Use photobucket to host your pix(FREE) and copy/past the img code to post em. And glad I could help you with the tuner. You will want to buy the tranny tuning so you can adjust shift points and turn down torque mgmt. The superchips has better trans tuning than my diablosport tho. It will cost you $40. Its well worth it.

You can turn off the ECO light by using the controls on your steering wheel.
It drove me more crazy than I already was. It's sure nice to have both MDS and ECO light turned off.

Do you think disabling the MDS will hurt the engine in the longrun?

I don't think it will cause any problems, much more simple, not switching back and forth for 4 to 8 cylinder. Truck is much more responsive without MDS and I don't see any loose of fuel saving driving around town. Have not been on any extended trips since to compare fuel savings since disconnecting MDS.
