I tried searching for this information but came up with nothing... Im new to the whole P-Pumped 24 valve conversion idea and I was wondering if after I put a P-pump on my 24 valve could i still program it with say an Edge Juice w/ Attitude? :confused013: OR would i then have to treat my engine like a 12 valve and continue to add power by doing things such as delivery valves and tuning the P-pump like a 12 valve? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you search for it and come up with nothing... pretty good possibility it can't be done. Probably best to sit back and read a lot more about these pumps and the process of changing them out before asking any more questions. P-Pump is strictly mechanical. You have to understand how to tune them. No plug an play with them at all.

TH147,

I don't see why not. I used an old style Smartchips programmer on mine.
It did a fine job of calibrating the speedometer for the tire size on my 98.5.

Shainer was dead on-Sit back and read more.

My answer was a little tongue in cheek but you can still program the ECM. It just won't affect the P7100 operation.

I took it as he wanted to program an Auto truck with a p-pump swap so it would shift better/properly or adjust other minor things, turn off the MIL light etc.

Let me ask this..... If I did a P-Pump conversion could I use a smarty because it functions through the ECM? Or would that be pointless?

The P7100 is a mechanical pump. no programmer will effect its operation. The VP44 is an electronic pump that can be programmed.

Once ppumpef the only use a programer will have is to calibrate speedo. You CANNOT gain ANY power from a programmer with a ppump.

there are none that will do any thing to adjust the trans, short of a PCS controller. also none will turn off the MIL light. easiest way........pull the bulb. lol

With chevys and fords you can do those types of things. I should remember were dealing with stupid chrysler stuff.

I don't care what y'all say. I still think I can put a programer on my p-pump.

Well than you must know magic! the VP44 which was designed for a 3 liter engine is electronic and mechanical, connected to vehicle ECM, The P7100 is 100% mechanical, unless your going to make little arms and solenoids to hook to ecm, it CAN'T be programmed!
