You do realize that the db scale is logarithmic so the increase is almost double the noise perceived by a person ears?

Is that at Brazils? I should have had them run ours when we were there a couple years ago.

I was amazed to see that at the wheel hp was so low. Hp ratings are a little misleading

andycamper: Do you have a pyrometer to check the exhaust temps? Where did you have the work done. Is the module adjustable? What is the full name of that module and who is the MFR.?

Killer update for a programmer.


HP - Its perspective.

The diff between the crank HP and the rears wheel HP is always dramatic with such heavy gear sets.

I think an F150 is something like 20%.

No EGT Sensor yet. Working on that. While test where being done we monitor exhaust system temp an with the new areal 5050XL it was cooler than he thought

Diesel up LLC. / power systems. 877-686-3326. They. Build the module. Them self. To match ur motor an needs he told me that he used to make the mp8.

At one there were 4-5 engineers an techs. Working on mine. While is was there. They also warranty it for lifetime they said dyno is the only way to no if ur engine will respond to any upgrades. Good luck all headed out for three weeks Can't wait to see how it pulls. I will take it easy but. Was told. Should see fuel savings.

Ninos,

Is your programmer a MP-8 or one from Diesel Up?

Andycamp,

Did Diesel Up tell you they made the module they installed? A Google search seems to show that it is made by Agricultural Diesel Solutions and Diesel Up is one of many retail outlets for their products.
