tony, php or dp f5?

ok my PU is pretty much stock (intake downpipe, 5inch). i know that you wont gain over 60hp without injectors but i would like to get a chip with a couple settings. i would like one for daily, econ, and one for smoke or agressive. Ive been looking a tony's chips but i havent seen anything that puts him above dp. Also i had a ts that went bad but on 140 it would smoke quite a bit, will the costom smoke settings smoke more or less then the ts tune.

i have a six speed manual so no worries about shift points and getting gauges soon.

I have only dealt with Tonys tuning and love it. You would still need guages for EGT atleast. Also never hear anything bad about PHP, DP on the other hand...no comment.

I think that if you do some pricing, you'll find that we don't need to do any "deals".

Are you serious?

My first thought when I saw this thread was, "oh cool another one, these are always fun..."

But now I see it taking a whole new direction.

Seriously, if all you wanna do is blow smoke, take the turbo off your truck and it'll smoke like crazy.

Taking the turbo off will have the added benefit of giving a true diesel enthusiast something heavy to throw at your head...

im not wanting to just blow smoke. i would like to give my pickup a little more power and the reason i was wondering about the smoke settings was because my buddys in there piece of sh** dodges think its funny to smoke me out going down the road and i just want to get them back a little.
