I would get a TS style chip over the DP-Tuner, Because you have so many choices who can burn you tunes. DI, Gearhead, TW, Swamps, etc.. vs. being stuck with one tuner.

I have the DP F5 and like it Jody has done a good job for me but thats all I have ever had in my truck. As said the TS chip can be tuned bye a number of tuners. I would like to get a TS chip and find out who's tuning I liked best

The TS chip is the way to go because if for some reason you don't like the tuning that is on it. You can always have another tuner reburn it with there tunes. With the DP you are stuck with them and there hardware.

Yep very true easy to just send it out and get it reburned with someone elses tunes.

Nope never said that. :confused:

You might be remembering us coming out with a rotary knob switch to work with our F5 or F6 chip. ;)
Yay!! What good is that if you want to use your tunes along with tunes from other tuners. None... :doh:

If that is what you want to do then you will need to use chips that allow you to do so. Our's are not set up that way.
So people are stuck with being able to use anyone's tuning but your, or yours without swapping chips. How lame... I have both a F5 and a TS, chip currently, and it sucks that your product is locked only to your tunes.

really? us 6.4 guys with spartan are stuck. ALL dodge guys are stuck. i think DP made the smart move business wise. but i believe what they did was develop a smart unit that they copyrighted, because they dont want anyone to be able to sell the f5-f6 , not because they wanted to insure you couldnt swap chips. its a matter of protecting an innovative product, as well they can encrypt their tunes, which keeps others from looking at their proprietary info. with the TS style chips, anyone can open anyone's tunes.

Its not really "there" own product......anyone can buy and tune there own using the same stuff. You just have to call Moates and ask about it. They use the TunerPro software along with Moates Quarter Horse hardware


I am really suprised other vendors hasn't started using it. From what i've heard, its pretty powerful stuff. Welcome to www.moates.net! : Moates.Net

If Jody wants to distribute his tuning on the F-5 and F-6 chips I see that as simply a choice he made to protect his work and allow better control over any chip issues. With as many members as we have any more it would not be very hard to find another member that you could borrow a chip from if you wanted to try out some alternative tuning.
