Get a TS chip with one of sponsor/vendors custom tunes on it (Swamps, Diesel innovations, gearhead, beans, and the list goes on). Then you can choose the tunes for all your needs.

Use the search function, there are many threads with many opinions. If you like something you read look into that sponsor, or give them a call. There are so many options!

I'm getting my new tunes from matt at gearhead tommorrow, can't wait. I've heard great things about him, and expect no less when it gets installed.

I love my tunes from Matt at Gearhead but there are LOTS of great tuners here for the TS Chips. I'm sure you would be happy with any of them.

I've been running my TS chip for a few years now and it works great. The power is awesome. I get around 17-18 MPG with my truck if I behave.:pullover:LOL As for soot it will let some loose but you won't leave a huge cloud behind. Definately get one from one of the vendors here.:D

Custom tunes beat shelf tunes any day of the week. If your getting a TS chip make sure you get it from a sponsor/vendor and have there tunes put on it.

My tunes come from Diesel Performance Plus (sponsor) but the tunes were written by Bill Cohron. I like them very much and it does'nt smoke much compared to some of my buddies trucks.

Just got my new TS chip today but need to get it reprogrammed. Thinking of going with the TS Tunes but I am open for suggestions for an OBS 97' F350 CC, Longbed with 4" lift and running 35's. Any help is greatly appreciated. My son drives an 02' with Banks and is waiting for my results to switch over.

Dont get TS tunes, like they have said before. Browse through the sponsors. Any of them will be waaaay better than shelf tunes (TS).

And tell your son he does'nt need to see your results to switch from banks. There tunes are very conservative and weak. Custom tunes on and SCT or even better IMO custom tunes on a TS chip will be all you ever need as far as tunes.

Any suggestions "Sponsors" where to start looking for good 97' OBS tunes since I have read chips on the 97' don't make much of a difference.

Tunes on a 97 will wake it up. Although a lot more can be had with some more mods like 17* hpop, CAC, turbo, etc. the list can go on forever.

For an OBS, Tony Wildman is the boss. The good thing about a TS chip, is once you own it, if you decide to change tuners for some reason, they can all tune them.

I got a TS tuned chip awhile back, the tunes were ok but the trans sucked, I sent it out to TWILDMAN and had him tune it, to be honest my first round of tuning wasnt good, trans was good but the truck wouldnt get any more than 18psi of boost, the TS tunes would get 30 pounds on the 100hp setting... sending it back to Tony to have him rework it....Im sure he will get it worked out he has a great reputation....

Whoever said you wont see that much of a difference with a chip on a obs is wrong, I saw a big enough jump....about a 60-80hp as 80hp is the max a obs will make one stock injectors.


We carry Tony wildman and Swamps tuned TS chips. Shoot me a pm if you want some prices.
