Ok Im about to be home and open my new Superchips programmer. Ive seen some guys on here that have the programmer and most of them have a different thermostat. Am I going to have to get another thermostat when I reprogram my truck? If so which one? and which one do I have now?

You don't have to change your t-stat out (stock 203 deg.) aslong as you run the right octane gas with the program ie. 89 octane for 87 setting......91+ for towing and performance. That said, running a lower temp t-stat is some extra peace of mind. jmho.

That's right. In general, it's a good idea to run 89 octane if you're stock. No different with the SC on the 87 octane setting, although I don't normally have a problem in Houston using 87 octane fuel. Just read the manual and it will become clear. :)
