Which programmer

I am sure that this has been debated 1000 times over, but I am new to the powerstroke family, and am trying to compile a list of first mods, and one is the programmer. Since there are so many I was curious on what you were running and what you recommend

I am looking for MPG and power. I dont want to make 1000HP by any means, but I would like to get some more power out of it while ideal getting 20-25 MPG freeway.

2003 6.0L with 130K

Most people on here will tell you non that you listed. Your money is best spent on PHP or TW tunes, or custom tunes. I am in the same boat as you. I want more power, but also want MPG's. I am torn between the TW and PHP 6 position chips.

When I get the rest of the supporting mods done, I was going to get one of the two chips. Since my truck is a working truck, I was not looking for hte 120 or 140 HP settings. I am thinking stock, e80, 25t ,40t, 80t, High idle. But then again, it would be nice to kill a ricer in a 10k lbs truck

I had a buddy test a SCT 1705 high performance setting on my truck and I could feel a differnce!! But then I do not have a pyro or other guages to monitor it. It was fun for the 2 miles I drive it!!!!!!!!!

good luck with chip / programer hunting

For the 6.0 pretty much everyone is going to say custom tuned SCT. The real debate is what person to tune it.
