Chip or no chip 97 7.3 PSD
Hey guys I'm new here as you can see but I do know some stuff about powerstrokes 7.3's, so I'm thinking of chipping my truck its an 97 f450 7.3 psd pretty much bone stock I do have a afe cold air intake and a 3" downpipe to a 3" stack I will be upgrading exhaust 3" downpipe to 5", would a ts performance 6 position chip hurt the motor and overheat it, I'd like to know what the cons of having a chip and the pros and what the best chip/tuner I should get and the difficulty of installing it and is it something I can do myself or something very difficult,
to make a long story short is it bad to chip it, I would like the extra power though. thanks guys would really appreciate it.
