What is the best tuner

A friend of mine just bought a 01 7.3 and wants to put a programmer on it and do some mods. What is the best tuner and best mods for the money? He has a 01 7.3 excursion with a ts 6 position on it. Is there anything better then that? We plain to do the napa mod filter to it.

Re: What is the best tuner

yeah custom tunes on that TS chip.


alot of different tuners use TS style chips with their tunes.

Beans
Swamps
DI
Gearhead
Bts
Tony Wildman
Truck source
PHP

I believe elite uses them too.

I have a post that TARM made and have it bookmarked and have posted it in the past. has well over 50 links to different tuner threads.

I think a 4 inch exhaust and downpipe would help as well with a set of gauges.

Re: What is the best tuner

yeaaa weak rods. do a search you'll learn all kinds of things about em, pretty much that he's tuner limited. tell him to do some investing before he thinks about injectors,
