changing from chip to prorammer.

Hey guys,
new to this forum and to power strokes.
here is my question.
i bought my 1999 7.3 a few weeks back. it has an 80 hp towing chip plugged into the PCM, (or at least i think that is where the chip is) if i ere to switch to a programmer. can i just remove the chip out of the pcm? and have it return to stock settings? or would i have to get a stock chip to put in there. there is no screen or anything from the chip i guess its just plugged in there.

thanks a lot! and sorry if i sound like an idiot
-will

Re: changing from chip to prorammer.

Check and see if maybe it's plugged into the ICP sensor. And why are you wanting to go to a programmer?

Remove the chip from the CPU and it will go back to stock.
Best option is a chip with selectable programs on the fly..I sell TW's chips, If I can help PM me.

Re: changing from chip to prorammer.

Like said before , ign OFF, keys in your POCKET. Unplug the chip from the pcm and you will be stock. The custom tunes do much more than a programmer. Trans controls, etc. I used to run a hypertech and my DPTuner puts out more usable power in the 20 tow than the 100 hp on the hypertech. Night & day diff and safer also.

6 pos chip will be a lot better than a programmer..you dont have to plug it in every time you want to change the power levels...its on the fly..id refer tony wildman at totaldieselperformance.com

Definately a 6 position... I don't think an SCT holds 6 tunes does it?
