Ok guys bought my truck with a quadzilla on it and I'm not a big fan of it. How can I remove it from the truck? Can I just unplug it from the map sensor and then all the other wires or do I need to take it and have it refreshed? I'm assuming the VP44 wire has been tapped but haven't looked?

Be the biggest mistake you'll make, unless you want bone stock gutless truck.

I should add with a good injectors turbo combo you'll be ok but you'll never see full potential and perks.

 

So very true. I'm also got a Quadzilla Adrenaline been running it now for 5 years. If you want to disable the Quadzilla just set it for level ZERO and it stock once again and you can drive on that and realize that you lost quite a bit of power. I've gone from the 235 HP/460 TQ to somewhere around 500 HP now and still capable of reaching 21 MPG.

My quadzilla I think has some issue's I think?! Went through 2 IAT sensors within 2 weeks and both times it threw that code I switched to power level 7. Now just recently I've got map sensor issues some my plan is to replace the map sensor, go to a stock tune throw in some 275RV injectors and probably a BHAF or K&N replacement filter, only other mods are a Flo pro 4in straight pipe to 5in tip and a Fass Ddrp lift pump. I'm not looking for a race truck really its alot more truck then I need but I was needing to get rid of my 2011 ram 1500 (flattened cam lobe) and got a good deal on this 02 Cummins. Most I tow and haul is Atvs mowers and coal truck parts.

Quadzilla does not use IAT signal in any part of the tunes. Be aware that using level zero you return back to ECM software and then the IAT signal is used.

Don't use a K&N filter good way to dust out an engine. Every time you wash the filter the media is being broke down and bigger and more particulates will pass through the filter. True test is K&N filter run up a dirt road and then white glove the turbo. I'm pretty sure you'll chuck that K&N in the trash. Also if you are a big washable filter fan there is washable oil filters but I don't know anyone crazy enough to use it.

 

MAP sensor on the Quadzilla does not always show accurate numbers. Like on mine my ISSPro boost gauge shows a max boost of 47 to 49 PSI. Then Quadzilla will record a max boost of 69 PSI. I don't worry about the MAP sensor because the 0 to 30 PSI is OK. Close enough being that's all the Quadzilla uses for the CANBus fueling.

That's surprising to me. Didn't even OBD1 cars use IAT to figure fueling and timing? Or, does the ECM still see it and make adjustments so the Quad doesn't need to make changes?

No, I believe quadzilla relies on end user's knowledge of tuning for a particular situation, that's why you could save up to tunes. :2cents:

Iat doesnt play a big role on normal operation.  Left it out because stock didnt appear to use it.
