TW chip question

got a couple questions.
I have a TS 6pos chip, i am wanting to get it reburned with TW tunes. the thing that is bothering me is that the TS makes my trans feel and shift sloppy and really hard durring heavy footing. my question is will the TW tunes fix this problem. I know its not the trans, its new. do the TW tunes firm up the trans any or make it shift better. I really dont like anything about the TS except the fact that its on the fly. I guess i really expected it to do well with my injectors and it fell short. my 1705 Super had a lot more power but made the truck run strange but it shifted good. Are the TW tunes really that much better than TS? Im just doin a little asking around before i spend the 150 bucks to get the TS reburned. any info is much appreciated

TW tunes rock. I think you will be much happier. You should call him to discuss your goals.

yeah i may have to do that. was just hoping that someone with the same set up could let me know the diffrence they saw between the TS tunes and the TW tunes. I am just hoping the TW tunes are much hotter than the TS tunes. kinda got my hopes up a little, but as of now i like my 1705 superchip better.

There is variation in the TW files as well really depends on what you want. My latest files I really like how it shifts as the shift points seem to be higher and will actually downshift too...which the previous files did not seem too. Speak with TW or his dealers...

I was wonding if I got a ts chip then sent it in to tony for a reburn are the reburns on a ts free as well cause it seems to be a bit cheaper to go that route.

Naw, don't recall ever charging anyone for another reburn once my programs are on the chip.

Just for thought, thinking about doing a sale...6 position for 400.00 shipped (ground). What do ya'll think?

That would be great for people! About your trans. if it slips with the TS then TW tunes will probably fix a little bit of it. How much hotter are you wanting the tunes? They can only go so high with a stock truck.

2000 F-250 216k- smoke much?

well if i had a stock truck i could see that. trans doesnt slip, shift points suck with the TS. i just dont think the stock TS tunes are that great for trucks with mod injectors and so on. just wanted a little info from people that run moded trucks with TW tunes, see what TW tunes do for them. any info is appreciated.
