I am looking at getting another 7.3L and wondering what would be the best to put on there to tune the trans aswell. I had a Edge Evolution on my last truck, but it didnt do anything for the transmission I dont believe. I have heard about Tony Wildman and TS Performance.. Whats the best guys. Man objective best fuel mileage.

I personally like Matt at Gearhead Automotive.

I have tried a few other chips and my truck and I like his tuning the best.

But there are lots of other great tuners on this site and if you pick any of them they will work with ya to get what you want out of your tunes.

Here is a list of some tuners.

Matt at Gearhead
Bill at PHP
Johnathan at Beans
Aggie at TSD
Tony at TDP
Johnathan at Swamps

Im gonna keep posting this.....

do a search.......

Thanks tarm


Some quite reading for you to research chips and what will work best FOR YOU and YOUR GOALS.

As for tuners versus chips Tunes you can not switch tunes on the fly you also will be limited to generic tunes or only one maybe two custom tuners and then you will be very limited in your choice again. In just about every way the chip is better choice. One thing that can be of confusion on here if you are somewhat new is the use of the term tuner. On here we are almsot never referring to the device called a tuner but the person that actually is writing the tunes themselves for the chips. I woudl say easily 99%+ of those on here use a chip not a tuner. One other thing is that the maker of the popular chip used by many tuners to installed there tunes on is TS chip. But that same manf also sell that chip with generic tunes on them. So you will see comments about TS style chip from one of the custom tuner you are about to learn about with some reading. This is what you are looking for.

Of the various custom tuners out there: Swamps, [email protected], Beans, BTS( Cales), PHP (Bill), DI, TDP, Tony Wildman (TW not to be confused with TS) are some of the best.

Most every question you can have about chips the tuners who's tunes are run on them should be answered in the threads linked below. Including which is best, this tuner versus that, this chip versus that, etc... If not ask and I am sure you will get answers.

I really like Diesel Innovations tunes...

You really can't go wrong with anyone. If you like the Edge setup, Bill at PowerHungryPerformance.com can put custom tunes onto one for you.

I haven't read anything that shows one tuner is a cut above the others. Seems like it is a basically a "I like the shift points or the way it shifts better". They did a shootout that had most of the tuners doing about the same, give or take a few. Since they are all reasonably competent, if you don't like the way one thing handles, you can send it back for a reburn. That is unless you have the DP-Tuner F6. Then you can download a program WITHOUT having to send it anywhere. IMO, that is what puts DP-Tuner over the top.

im pretty sure hes talking about the FU chip.... comes with a burner and you can download any of the tunes you want from their server and burn them yourself on the chip

-Raul
correct


granted DP tuner has a really sweet controller for their chip. you will have to buy a new/blank TS chip to try another tuner since DP tuner uses their own style.

F6 is $400 FU2 is $675. Would you have to remove the chip? AFAIK the F6 does not need removal.

it aint that hard to remove a chip. not like its rocket science.
It is a lot more convenient to plug something in than to have to remove the chip. When I remove the chip I have to cut the securing tape and redo it. Sure, if I just wanted to pull it out, it might be easier.

and its alot more convenient to own a chip that can be burned by say 7 different tuners then just one. . . . . . just saying.

I dont wanna muck this thread up anymore.

I said what I wanted to say and I know the higher ups dont want another tuner bash thread.
