FROM THE DRIVER SEAT
The overall installation went very smooth with no complications. The most challenging segments of the installation, were removing the passenger-side exhaust manifold, and drilling a 7/16-inch hole, followed by tapping it with a 1/4-inch NPT tap (for the EGT coupler) and reinstalling the exhaust manifold. Once the iQ and Six Gun were installed, the Chevy Duramax was an absolute beast. Power was instantaneous and the added torque threw you back into the seat. Drivability was improved with quicker throttle response and any time more power was needed (up to 140 rwhp based on the dyno pulls), we used the touchscreen to dial it in and then held on while the iQ worked its magic.
