chip and tuner

Hey I drive a 96 psd with a zf5 with a ts 6 position chip. I was wondering if you can piggy back it with a edge evolution tuner?

why would you do that? the chip is way better than the programmer... just get some custom tunes put onto it and you will be far happier... oh and some gauges if you dont already have some

Listen to them.... The chip is way better than a programmer, if you get custom tunes on it you will love it.

I went from a programmer to a custom tuned chip and it was night and day.
