x2, your safe with TW, PHP, Beans, etc. Tony's tunes are liked. You might have to wait a while to get the tunes though. check with Raul at stealth automotive and see what his TW time table is like.

you may already be aware, but be sure to get guages so you dont melt things with your new hp. an aftermarket down pipe is also highly advised. (if you have the flat stocker)

Asking who's chip to use is like asking who makes the best beer. Here's what info I can add. Tony makes good tunes, but can be hard to get a hold of. DP Turner makes good tunes but some complain about the amount of timing Jody puts in the tunes. PHP- Bills one of the innovators in making tunes for PSD's I can't say anything about Beans or anyone else's tunes.

thanks guys and my truck has an aftermarket down pipe already and I'm working on getting the gauges so i can watch that stuff. So with the TW, i know i have to select the tunes i want but when i order the tuner with the tunes i want does it come with them programmed into it or how does that work? sorry if that's a stupid question or not but I'm new to the diesel scene and want to learn all i can about it. Oh and another question, how do i find out if my truck already has a chip in it?

If you get the TW 6 Pos Chip ( http://www.totaldieselperformance.co...ctCode=TDP%5F6 ) It has 6 different positions you can change on the fly. you custom order it to your liking and it comes to your door loaded with the "tunes." See this: Diesel Movies - I install a DPTuner F5 chip in my buddies truck. Positions were Stock hi idle 60tow 80econo 120 race 140smoke. for instructions on how to install it. if your truck doesnt smoke and isnt fast, it is most likely not chipped.
