    Upgrade Install Question

    I have an Exhaust, Tuner, and EGR upgrade kit.

    I have a school auto tech class that the teacher asked me to allow his students to install the exhaust.

    I am fine with them installing it but am curious to know if I would be okay driving my truck back to my house that afternoon to complete the EGR upgrade and tuner install?

    I live about 15 mins (city street) with traffic from where the class is to where my house is.

    You want to install the tuner first then hard parts.

    That’s what I figured.

    Would I be safe driving home with the EGR still factory?

    They turn that off.

    All you need to do is the exhaust.

    Really appreciate it. The shop teacher wants me to drop it off with him that morning.

    I will just make sure the tuner is wired up first.

    Thanks.

    You want to install the tuner first before disconnecting the exhaust wiring and components.

    Do the install for the tune and then use the drive to school to do the relearn on the trans. You can then enjoy the drive home from work.

    Got the tuner installed this morning and exhaust installed by the high school seniors in the Autotech class.

    Overall very happy with the results. My truck is alive again and oh the smell of diesel exhaust in the air!

    One gripe, I have a high pitched ‘whine’ at idle.

    My 2010 didn’t have this when it was deleted the same way.

    As soon as I tap the gas it goes away. I’m assuming turbo?

    Is there anyone else that has this?
