Ts 6 Chip Questions

So, i have been dabbing at the idea of getting the TS 6 Position chip for a while now. I think i have decided to get one heres my questions and current mods on truck.

97 ccsb powerstroke.
Intake,4' straight pipe, 3' dp,boost egt trans gauges, banks intercooler y pipe and turbo discharge pipe, custom intercooler pipes made from factory 2001 7.3 power stroke pipes. cut up and welded back together, to fit. intercooler is a factory stock 2000-2003 intercooler.

SO, what is the best place to get the tunes from. I have been reading a lot about people saying Beans, or Swamps? Are the stock tunes when you purchase just the chip that terrible?

heres links to where i think i found the best prices.

1. Stock Chip
TS Performance 6 Position Chip

2. Beans

3. Swamps
TS Performance Chips for Ford 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel Better Fuel Mileage More Power Swamp's Program Chips More Power - Better Mileage




Any input would be greatly appreciated!!

I would go with the beans tunes. I have heard nothing, but good things about there tunes. I have swamps tunes with stage 1 injectors and they arent bad. I will be going with beans tunes soon though.

I have a TS 6 Position in my truck, which is pretty close to what you have, I think minus the intercooler, and I HATE the way the trans shifts. My superchip was a better shift than the the TS. GET A CUSTOM TUNE from just about anyone and you should be happy

I had a TS 6 position in my 95 and it pretty much sucked.I had TW reburn it and it was a drastic improvement in performance and especially fuel economy.I would definately recommend TW!
