99.5 zf6 swap/ using original pcm with burnt chip

So I've got a late 99 that I'm doing the ZF6 swap on I currently have a NVK3 PCM, and run a TS chip My question is can I keep my NVK3 PCM and just get the TS reburnt as if I had a DAC3 PCM, I could have used the one from the donor truck but it was early 99 and from what I've been told those wont support the new stuff? And they don't have the umph the late 99's do. Either way I know I was looking at a re-burn of my chip at the least, as far as I understand you can use any of the late PCM's you wish because once you install the chip it takes over anyway..right? Also just getting the chip re-burned would be easy, cheap, and fast because I live about 15 minutes from , Thoroughbred diesel and they can do it while I wait in about 10 minutes to run of the mill DAC3 tunes. Just needing someone with more experience than me to point me straight. TIA!!!

Well I was hoping not at first but when I put it all together using my NVK3 and TS burnt for it, I'm getting REALLY bad lag till around 1500ish rpms then it finally decides to take off and was told it was due to shift points in the automatic

Sounds like a stock zf6 truck to me. You just have to learn to drive it different.

01 f-250, Standard
Rev tech 4" lift, 37" military wrangler Mt tires
KC diy 66, Full force 160/100 and custom tunes from PHP
Banks intercooler and full 4" exhaust, Diy S&B intake
Diy quad feed, Hydra, Isspro boost, pyro, and fuel pressure
3/0 battery cables with military style terminals

And it will be laggy until over 2000 rpm when the turbo really gets to going.

Depends on budget.

But try shifting close to 3k rpms.

Well I've got fresh stock AD injectors, gtp38r ,the chip, bellowed up pipe kit, 5in exhaust factory down pipe, factory air intake with a k&n, but that's all I've done to it. What kind of tuning should I do? Not trying to through a ton of power at it, just want it to run well like it should but overkill isn't what I'm after, with that being said if I ever do want to put my foot in it I would like it to wake up. Not really trying to go over 5k would like to keep it between 3-5

Ditch the k&n.
Talk to 1023 diesel, cncfab, etc. See who you get ahold of first.
