Want Chip.. Which one though?

Looking for a chip for my 1996 F250 ZF-5 Trans. I was looking at chips, heard the best about Tony Wildman but whats your guys input? TS seems reasonably priced and if i'm not mistaken you can have new tunes burned on? I don't really want to spend over $400. Also with a Tuner, Intake and Exhaust will my stock clutch hold up to the power? I don't plan on doing any burnouts, just want the extra power. Thanks, Pete

TS is the "cheap way out". Spend the money, and go to someone like Tony or PHP. You will be happy.

Id go with a 6pos. chip and not DP tuner.

Some tuners to choose from are

Diesel Innovations
PHP
Tony Wildman
BTS
Beans
Swamps
WOP
Gearhead Automotive

Id look more to who's closest to you. They are all good tuners and there is nothing wrong with any of them. It just somes down to preference. I have tried PHP and gearhead and its about to go to Diesel Innovations and i have nothing bad to say about any of the two that i tried, I just want to try all of them out.

1997 Single Cab Dually, S366 w/ Irate mount and plenums, EFuel, Intercooler, P.I.S 175/80s, Corbeau seats w 08 console, 19.5s, 6637, Black Interior with swede headliner and visors, Custom badges, Flight Fab Traction Bars.

Not trying to hijack a thread here but on php website it says something to the effect that dp tunes are a trademark to php. Is dp just reselling php tunes or what?
