Alright I went back to stock this morning before my commute. No change in the Baro reading, it's still about 5-6inHg lower than what appears on the weather app on my phone. What I have noticed though is that what I thought was transmission/clutch rattle, particularly in 4th, 5th and 6th gears around 1600-1800RPMS is gone...I was nervous about this given it's a brand new clutch! Rail pressure on my commute is about the same, but then again I wasn't noticing anything funny with it during my commute with the Smarty loaded.
Not sure what to make of the situation. At 167K miles, my original injectors are certainly getting a little more noticeable noise wise. MPGs and starting are still just as good as they were at 120K when I bought the truck though.
I'm about to decide to just leave tuning stock and get rid of the smarty. Plenty of power at stock level, seems to run a little better, and the locomotive smoke at high elevation, which I do frequently, ain't cool. Maybe once I get some extra $$ I'll go custom tuning.
