Re: best tuner/chip for 02 7.3?

My advise is to call some sponsors and see what they can offer you and choose one from there. You will get nothing but arguing if you ask in a thread like this. On that note I have a chip from Truck Source Diesel and could not be happier.

There are lots of great custom tuners on here. 99% of them use the TS Style 6-position chip and put there custom tunes on it.

Here is a list of them. I really like Matt out of the few I have tried but they are all great.

I'm not trying to pick nits or try to sound like a jerk, but only one company/product you mentioned actually sells "chips".

pretty sure you are wrong on that one
all of them burn chips, and pretty sure most of them sell chips as well.
now the chip might say ts on it but will have their tunes. but I know TW has his own labeled ts chip, and a fewothers do as well.

a custum loaded sct tuner will work well but no shift on the fly tunes like a chip.
but it is easy to load the tunes with.

Re: best tuner/chip for 02 7.3?

I've only had experience with Jody @ DP Tuner, and I love what he's done for my truck. I have also heard great things about Bill and Tony too. I guess its personal preference, and for some of these guys on here, trying different products.

Spartan- not sure who they use, but I have read posts that they do burn chips.
