I know there is already a million threads on this topic but I just wanted to get some opinion specific to my truck. I have heard allot about programmers and what makes the most power but I'm just not sure, I don't want something so crazy that it will shread my stock auto tranny so I figured the smarty sounded like a good idea. I am not looking to burn tires or blow smoke I would just like a little more power for towing and the occasionally screwing around lol. Now I know the lift pump is an issue to think about when running a programmer I bought my truck from the original owner/good friend and he told me the injection pump was replaced about 30xxx miles ago along with the lift pump it now has a FASS pump on it but I'm not sure how big it is where would I look to tell how big this lift pump is and what size should it be to handle a smarty programmer? Oh and he said the injection pump was replaced with a better one so I'm thinking maybe blue chip? Where on the injection pump is that information located? Any help is very appreciated I am fairy new to the performance world of diesels and just want to make sure I do it right and pray to god nothing blows up!!!
