Cool Dr. Performance?

Alright, I just heard of a brand of chip called Dr. Performance. I have never heard of it a buddy of mine has it on his 2000 6.0. He says it hasnt given him any problems and he has about 100,000 miles with the chip installed. Is this a good chip or what?

Oh and I am lookin to buy some gauges anybody know of a good brand on a college students budget?

I read up on that one when I first got my '05. It sounds good. I couldn't find anybody that knew of it or who could furnish feedback.
Well, I ended up buying a Quadzilla module instead.

Hey Welcome.....There are numerous chips out there with different tunes. The chips are pretty much generic, it has EVERYTHING to do with the tuning. There are tuners out there like Tadd (Elite Diesel), Jody's (DJ Performance), TS Performance, Tony Wildmann, Innovative Diesel, etc.
I have the 6 position chip with Tadd's tunes. The tunes are AWESOME! Elite's customer service sucks tho. All the tuners are REALLY good. There are alot of opinions like Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge. Alot is personal preference. Some tune specific to the use of your truck (towing, street, sleds, etc). But they'll all blow your mind.
I like the Quadzilla Commander I've got it is a digital guage setup that does EGT's, boost, oil temp, tranny temp, etc. Larry or Patrick @ Discount Power Parts are the guys to talk to. They won't be beat on price.
