6 position chip

Hey all! I am looking to purchase a chip for my 1995 F250, i am particularly looking at a 6 position. I have really been looking at the Tony Wildman chip! but i also saw the TS chip? Which is better/preferred? And also on the TS website it says the 75HP option doesn't necessarily work for stock injectors(which I have) Any thoughts on that? I am looking to upgrade to new injectors in the future though and I know that Tony Wildman chips have a lifetime re-burn guarantee! Any thoughts/suggestions are much appreciated!
Thank you!

-Charlie

I'm in the same boat and been looking at tony wildman and power hungry performance question is is it worth the extra $150+ now for the TW and what the wait times are like for getting a chip from them I found my PCM code today and I'm ready to buy one of the two

Power hungry performance is "the" chip

And for $295 (I think) no one can beat their price, not even a generic TS chip.

Generic is $250

PHP at 295 is before adding tunes I think, for all 6 positions it is like $475 ish.

The cheapest custom tunes out there for 6 positions is TW

A PHP chip is $295 with all the tunes for a lightly modded truck, like exhaust and intakes and the such

Power Hungry Performance - Phoenix™ Chip

I don't know where you have seen generic TS chips for $250, but the last time I looked they were going for about $325. Hell I bought my generic TS for $250 4 years ago.

Irregardless, the PHP chip is far superior to a generic TS, while still being cheaper then a TW, or anyone else for that matter. Bill at PHP has been tuning 7.3 longer then ANYONE else.

We'll say this. Custom tunes on a TS style chip are better than Edge/TS/Bully Dog/generic tunes. You pick your tuner. Beans, Swamps, Gearhead, Tyrant, TW, PHP, and BTS are a few.
