Hey guys, new here. My truck is a 97 F350 7.3 4x4

Currently has a Bully Dog chip, 4" MBRP Turbo back, and I will soon be ordering a Tymar intake setup for it.

I've been wanting a better chip for a while now, been looking at the DP F5 and PHP mostly, I really like the controls for the DP, but that really isn't my first concern. Just got my tranny rebuilt with some upgrades and it will be going back in the truck this week, so now im getting a bit more anxious for a new chip. Would really appreciate some feedback on these two brands, or others that any of you have had favorable experiences with. Thanks - Nick

Oh and heres a few pics of my baby just for the hell of it

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.

dont thank me, I just saved that post from a fellow member and have been posting it.

FWIW on a stock obs there really is no need for "100+hp" tunes.... we aint got the fuel.

my highest tune is a street-race tune from Tony and its there 90% of the time.

I like my tunes from Matt a lot. :redspotdance:. He is local to me and one of the best all around good guys there is. he will answer question and help you even if you are not a customer.
But there are many good tuners. Just talk with whomever you want to, listen to them or send emails. Ask Questions. See who satisfies all your needs anf gives you the most peace of mind. Dont just go with big talk.
No matter who you go with, you will be pleased I am sure.
