I searched, but did not see what I was looking for. I have been seeing you can get the TS chip with TS tunes for $around $230 shipped; on my stock truck with intake and exhaust, and valve body mod, would I really see enough difference to pay double for another tuners "generic" tunes?

Yes you would. The TS tunes are VERY generic. The tunes you would get from someone like Matt at Gearhead, Bill at PHP or Swamps have been tested and twicked for the best performance for YOUR truck. Even though there not live tuned they are bast off of other trucks just like yours and if somethings not right you send it back to them and they make it right for you and make it the way you like it.

Tommy,

Just so you know, when you buy tunes from some like us or Matt, even our "generic" tunes are not generic. We still takes into consideration many of the basic factors such as tires, gears, CAI, FPR, and such in order to provide quality calibrations for your specific application. Because we spend this extra time on the tuning, our prices are a little bit more. We're not saying that fully generic tunes won't work well, just sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference in how the truck performs.

Hope this helps.

Unless something changed DP doesn't even burn tunes on TS chips anymore.

It's a public forum, he can leave a vender out if he wishes. He isn't bashing on them in here right now so let's keep it on track.

My picks for tunes- (in no special order)

Aggie
MattR66
Wildman
Powerhungry
Swamps

Reburns are usually $150 from said vendors.

Since you brought it up, there are some tuners that I wouldn't recommend. Nobody else mentioned DP-Tuner in regards to the OP's question except you and this is somehow my fault? :poke:

Thats another one, $230 shipped for a TS chip, then $150 for a reburn, but I have not seen any mentioned vendors with a loaded chip for $380. I just don't have an unlimited budget for this stuff, gotta feed and clothe the kids, and I'm not asking for a pity party, just trying to get the most for my buck...tried the used chip route with a DP, was not happy that route.

Maybe you missed it... ;)

Check the pricing chart. Loaded 6 position runs $350.00 or less. I think others are about the same price but you'll have to check with them since pricing changes frequently.

Take care.

FWIW, I recently got my hands on a TS chip. I pulled the PHP chip I am runnin and put the TS in just to see what it was like.

I pulled over on the side of the road after maybe a mile and changed the chips back. It was that bad...
