Re: BRAND NEW HYPERTECH FUEL CHIP FOR 6.0 ECONOLINE VAN DIESEL
Let me explain, improving performance always depends on so many conditions like:
(2) vehicle engine condition
(3) type of equipment
(4) other modifications
Its not like you go, buy a chip, and get more power and better mileage automatically. But, if:
(1) your the original owner of the vehicle, and maintain it with synthetic diesel oil changes every 5K
(2) you drive in a way that minimizes wear on your truck, i.e. minimal braking and heavy gas starts etc.
(3) add quality performance parts to compliment the chip, like 5 inch open bore exhaust, high flow cat, and cold air
Then, you will realize more power, improved fuel economy in NORMAL operating conditions meaning normal driving, as opposed to all out open throttle. This is proven and is why companies like Banks are so successful.
I have owned many diesels, and always do exhaust, cold air, and chip mod's because I enjoy the new sound and tremendous power gains. If you want to go even more extreme, you can do fuel injectors. My friend has a Dodge Ram 2500 HD 4X4 with exhaust, chip, cold air, and fuel injectors with 735 HP and it runs 12.10 quarter, its just mind boggling how much power you can get out of a diesel.
But, these mods are really unnecessary for the average Sportsmobile owner who offroads and camps. They are more suited for the type that likes highway power and speed.
