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.

Matt @ Gearhead Automotive
Bill @ PHP
David @ DI
Johnathan @ Swamps
Aggie @ TSD
Tony @ TDP
Johnathan @ Beans

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.

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.

SCT= Eliminator chip
DP-F5 & F6
Spartan- not sure who they use, but I have read posts that they do burn chips.

that sct is still not a chip and same with the spartin, they are programmers not chips

I think this is somewhat confused and being one in the same product, but its not. But SCT does sells chips and they have for many years. Cale at BTS, last a have heard, sells the SCT Eliminator chip, also.
i stand corrected..... just never heard of the sct chip.

thanks

Well then, I also stand corrected. I have never seen a chip carrying tunes from any of those other companies.

I was right with the Edge Juice/Attitude bit though....it is NOT a flippin' "chip".

the edge juice is a modual (sp?) just like the banks six gun.... no matter what go with a custom tuned chip over anything else.. also dont forget to have you supporting mods too
