as long as you go with a custom tune you should be good....try to avoid canned tunes.

one of the main guys is tony wildman. Try a search there are several more out there who do custom tunes but I cannot think of them off the top of my head.

TS with Tony Wildman, Gearhead, Swamps, Beans, etc are all great.
PHP's new Hydra chip is a nice piece if you think you want more than 6 tunes.

Never had much use for "stock" setting myself when I normally live in Daily Driver. At least one of the guys in Backwoods' list will not burn a heavy tow without an intercooler installed. I would like to recommend that you consider in what order you get your tunes as much as what tunes you get. I prefer a U shaped setup where the lowest power setting is in the middle and you run left or right depending on what you are doing. Example, I run my tunes like this:

1: High Idle
2: Heavy Tow
3: Light Tow
4: Eco Drive
5: Daily Driver
6: Extreme

I tow a little less then I DD and in this layout I have a loaded truck side of the switch and an unloaded truck side of the switch.

Side note: Beans is emailing tunes again and selling a TS Burner.

In cold climates its usually a good idea to start your truck on stock when COLD... or a very low HP tune. But other wise i agree with ya Matt

Thanks Frank, I easily forget that I live somewhere that 80% of the rest of the nation doesn't get my weather. OP, Frank is right on wanting the lowest to no gain in HP for cold starts.

Re: Best chip for a stock power stroke

I'll keep all this in mind when I order will I get any smoke from any of the settings? Don't care if I do it not just wondering

Danger Will Robinson, DANGER! (Did I just age myself )

Hoyboy, you'll get smoke when you mash the skinny pedal but no one will burn a smoke setting. Our turbos are designed with mid to high RPM flow that on the low RPMs will smoke a bit. Not at cruising, you have to force it.


OK, lips zipped..
