Looking at both the F6 chip and the TS chip for Total Diesel Proformance. Looking for help!!!
Ts can be reburned by Anyone except dp...lolF5 and F6 can only have DP tunes
TS style chip can have tunes from any tuner
Actually there have been several places that have sold backing plates for the 6 position switches over the years. i'll look when I get home, but I think I have a truck sitting there with one of Bean's backing plates installed. Not sure if they still offer them or not.I want and like the knob. One thing that could be done, and I am actually surprised it never has been, is adding a numbered back plate to it. Not like you really need it but it would still be nice as an option. One thing I have found about push buttons from more years than I can to recall in IT and AV tech. They are not as durable. No two ways about it. Not saying a rotary knob can't be made very cheap; it can. Also not that a push button can not last a long time. But in general a rotary knob will be more durable and take more abuse and rough use. Especially if you add any liquid and debris to the mix. Now give me a rotary knob with led display and there you have it. These are TRUCKS after all things should be HD. The knobs tends to blend into the panel better as well.
From what I have seen, Craig Moates was commissioned to design them for DP-Tuner. I also saw an article that ran 5 chips on a truck that was modded so there was an "apples to apples" comparison. Might not be the tuner's prefered package but it gave a better comparison of their abilities. From what I saw, they were kinda close to each other. There was some slight difference but that was that. No one tuner was head and shoulders above the others. So yes, with the obsoleted rotary dial, you have more choices but they are pretty much the same. If I were to go backwards to those switches, I would definitely want to see something more than a few HP difference. Choice is good but when the difference is slight, choice for the sake of choice isn't worth much to me.Why doesent anyone make a digital selector like DP
