Thanks Guys, I'll start looking into those thing ya mentioned, I did notice, there' quite a big difference in the "Bully Dog" power levels, in the performance mode the truck runs great with alot of quickness, in the extreme mode the tuck jumps a live with quick pedal response, rolls a little coal too, Just don't want to blow anything up, So I'm going to take it slow with the mods, any make sure everything's going to work together before I get in trouble, Thanks Again for all the info

Diesels are expensive and addictive. Just a forewarning

Do yourself a favor and don't run the bully dog turned up. The stock trans will not have a happy life there.

leave the stock filter and leave the tuner under 60hp or you will be building that trans sooner than later

Default Lb7 Air Intake

Thanks, I'll keep it tuned down, is it because the stock tranny can't handle the extra HP, and what tranny mods would ya have to do, to be able to crank it up

It is 100% because of the stock 5spd trans. If you wanted to make more than say 60-90hp extra you'd need a built trans (better clutches, better converter, pressure mods, valve body mods etc).
