So, my buddy and I took it out this morning.. finally! To my pleasant surprise the truck ran really strong and it smoked LESS. Which is awesome, more fuel to burn and less to waste. I think because the guy had a 0 in it before and then he put the 5 in, and he didn't tune the afc (when he put the 5 in) and left it hot so when I took it completely out, it was a great pair up. Anyways, here's a video. I'm so flippin happy. I gained so much more low end power and a pretty decent difference in high end as well.

What is the down side of taking fuel plate out?

The downside is enough power to roast your stock TC or clutch. :hehe:

Haha that's true! The downside is if your truck can't handle it.. :rof

Luckily you got that built trans.. what kind of TC & valvebody do you have in there?
Either way if it's "built", I'm sure it can handle it. ;)

Good chit, I remember when I yanked mine out I got on the 101 on ramp and watched the EGTs fly to 1400 pretty damn quick LOL! Definitely get some 4K governor springs in soon, they made 3X as much difference as my #8 to no plate swap.

How much difference is there between no plate and the #100 that I have in there now? Not much right?

There's definitely a noticeable difference between any plate and no plate. Even a 0 plate full-forward doesn't allow full travel. Some people say it does, but I don't think it's really up for debate.

The proof is in the pudding... take it out and see.

I usually dont even continue listening to people at that point.....The plate has one purpose in life, limit rack travel. If the plate in question doesnt limit rack travel..........why is it even in there. I keep a 0 plate in my truck for the sole purpose of being able to cut the fuel down when I have to pull a decent sized trailer....but other than that I have no use for a plate.
