Hot Unlock does not need much of anything.. As long as you are basicaly stock then it will work fine.. If you upgrade the injectors or somethign that will cause it to fuel even more then I would be more worried with egt temps... But for now you are good..

i'd do a dpf delete, you're probably gonna plug the filter, and if you do the dpf might as well do the egr as well.

You will be close to needing a new clutch. Mine does not hold my motor with the edge even on 3 and MP-8 on 100%. Might hold the hot unlock by itself though. I have not tried it.

Well i just got back from puttin in the hot code. It makes my truck smoke constant while on it. it never cleared up. I also hit 1500 right at about 60mph. This is with the mp cranked though too. But on level 5 i only hit about 1350 and it stops smoking right after i take off.

It is noticabley stronger then 5....i might be sucking some air in my fuel making it so much hotter!

Just keep an eye on those egt's!!

I would not use the Hot Unlock unless you have the DPF deleted. You will just plug the filter up. Also start looking for a clutch. Mine would barely hold the Edge on 5.
