You should have gauges on a diesel to monitor EGT to avoid turbo meltdown at the very least. Boost pressure is another good one to be monitoring.

My buddies run a diablo sport predator on a 60 hp tune for atleast 3 years now with out gauges in his 06 and another running a predator with 160 hp stacker tune in his 03 without guages. Its definitly one of the best tuners for your truck. As long as your not hammering on it for an hour and a half straight your not gonna cook your turbo. When your pouring out black smoke, your EGTs will go way up just ease up on the truck a little and you'll be safe.
What transmission do you have in your truck? Stock manual I wouldn't run more then the 60 hp tune cause your stock clutch will slip like nothing. Stock auto you can probably run the 100 hp/160hp occasionaley but I wouldnt recomend it all the time (you might be ok with the 100hp economy tune all the time, try it out and see how your transmission handles it)

Theres no telling how your truck was treated before you had it so having it checked out cant hurt.
Play with the tunes to see what you and your truck like, the more power you add the more you have to baby your transmission. 60-100hp will be fine.

Very nice Mod line-up. I bought an Edge programmer before I bought my DSP and I use the Edge now as a guage monitor on my dash. It shows my 1/4 mile and 0-60 times when I am playing but I normally have tach, speed, coolant temp, and tranny temp displayed when just driving.

IMHO after owning 3 Dodge diesels and doing mod's to all of them I would NEVER mod a diesel without putting gauges on the truck first. Boost, Trans temp, EGT at a minimun. Also if you have any questions about your automatic trans you might write this name down--Goerend Transmissions. They build the best after market diesel trans on the market. Nothing cheap about them but they use billet parts and their trans are bullet proof and their customer service is second to none.

installed my k&n intake the other day. took about 2 hours. kidna frustrating because i didnt have a 10mm wrench but in the end it worked out. whistle from the intake into the turbo is beyond belief. small noticable power increase. couldnt be happier with the set up. reccommend to all
