Chips anyone?

I have figured its about time for me to fall into the craze of chipping my rig. My only delimia is what one to choose. First off let me give you some basics besides what I have done to my truck already(listed at bottom of the post) I do not want to mess with internals i.e. bigger injectors, turbo ect. the expensive stuff. I would like to keep it moderatly stock with a little more kick,safely. Although I do plan on up grading my tranny to a BTS thats about it. So I have seen so many chips and options I am not sure what to get that best suits my truck and gives me ultimate dirvabilty and econcomy without breaking the bank. Your input would be much appricated.

Re: Chips anyone?

Matt's (gearhead) tunes are excellent. the power comes on nice and smooth, and i've noticed a HUGE jump in mpg on one of his tunes.

Re: Chips anyone?

Matt has some good tunes. Especially since you have PMR's. He gets my vote!
His user name is mattr66 incase you want to PM him. Good Luck.

Re: Chips anyone?

No matter who you get tuning from you should get a TS style chip as probably around 95% of our sponsors who tune use this style of chip so if you ever want to change who does your tuning its as easy as jsut sending the chip to them rather than buying a new chip. As far as who tunes it I would recommend either johnathan at Swamps or Matt at gearhead

early 99 F350 Supercab longbed 4x4, Diprical gauges,GTP38R, Swamps competion fuel system with bowl delete,custom intake, 4in downpipe to 6in stacks, 200/30% hybrids from swamps, tuned by swamps, head studs.main studs, WOP cryo forged rods, ceramic coated pistons,Adrenalin HPOP,DI cam. Train horns, Ranchand front bumper DMI rear, Kumho kl71

I would get gauges before doing the chip. Several vendors offer both. I currently run a chip from Bill at PHP (Sponsor) and I am very happy with how my truck performs. You might post in the vendors section looking for a package deal on tunes and guages and see what kind of response you get.

Thanks,good idea. The only reason I didnt post in the vendors is because I wanted a responce from real people with real answers, not trying to sell me something.

Re: Chips anyone?

I guess I underestimated the integrity of the vendors. my last post was in no way intended to offend anyone including the vendors. I just wasnt familiar with the way the vendors ran.
