I have seen many good shops that know what they are doing only charge $400 for these mods. Truck comes in at 180rwhp, and leaves a couple hours later at 350rwhp and running more efficiently and smoother than ever.
I called 1 of our local diesel shops about doing this and after telling them where my truck was at as far as mileage and performance they said that maybe i should leave it the way it is but they would gladly have a look and check the timing
I do know there are a couple little things that could be better

if you're looking for more power then go ahead and do the fuel plate. the best way to improve your MPG is the way you drive. i wouldn't say that doing this mod would hurt your MPG's unless you have a heavy foot.

I made a #100 for my daily driver. No major mods, I run down the highway about 100 miles a day. Major power response and it increased fuel mileage when I keep my foot out of it.

I run a 0 plate for a daily driver. With a tuned AFC, the plate won't come into play anyhow unless you have the pedal matted.

I would recommend taking the fuel plate out, soon I am purchasing a #0 fuel plate. After I took it out I got 2x the power than without it but just don't go smoking on people cause you will get a lot of hate. But hey it's still fun to do sometimes

First off welcome to DTR.

I do have a few questions though..
I do not understand your post...You recommend taking it out, but you are soon planing on putting a #0 plate in it.
So you are recommending other people pull the plate out, but you prefer to run a #0 plate?

Then you say "After I took it out I got 2x the power than WITHOUT it"???
How can you remove the fuel plate if you already where running without it?
At what point did it make 2x the power?

I can not tell what you recommend from this post you added to an almost 10 year old thread.

First off thank you, I know it's a 10 year old thread but I thought I would add to help people out. I have been running with my fuel plate in as long as I have had my truck but recently I decided to take it out. AFTER I took it out I felt that my truck gained a lot of hp. I'm not sure if it's good to run without it so I am going to purchase a #0 plate just to be safe. I hope it answers your question and hate

No hate.
I have never run a p-pumped motor with no plate, so I was unsure what you where actually saying.
I have owned many stock ones and run a few with aftermarket mild plates.

I would assume it would be safe with no plate if you could keep the EGTs down where you need them.

Did your EGTs spike after pulling the plate out?
