Superchip VS TS 6 pos. Chip

ok, rite now i have a superchip in my truck, and is nice, just want a little more power. superchip has a 90hp performance tune.


and i was wondering if the TS chip is any better? and would i feel a difference between my 90hp superchip and the ts on 140hp?


truck is a 96, intake, exhaust, built TC, etc.
its a cali truck so it has the split shots.



let me know soon because im planning on ordering the chip soon!

thanks!

96 7.3L, RCSB, Race truck

the superchip is ok but is a generic tune. for best power go with a 6 position TS chip custom tuned to suit your needs. look at TW, gearhead, swamps, beans, PHP.... the list keeps goin but thoes seem to be the popular ones. $295 for a PHP is the most cost efective, while gearhead and TW offer free reburns so.... what ever your after go for.. but yes you shold get a little more power out of a custom tune VS a superchip especially since yours is a Cali truck

very much so worth it, i have tw tunes on my cali model on a 6 pos chip, love it, had an edge and this not only blows that outta the water, but it runs, drives, shifts, and sound better, keeps my temps way lower, and i can change to any setting any time i want dont have to turn it off or anything, btw you could have a single tune burned on your superchip by php iirc

Yes. Think about it.
Superchips has to make a product that will work on your Cali model 7.3, a 94.5 49 state 7.3, and my 2000 7.3.
A custom tune will be just that. One that will be tuned for YOUR truck.

I just recently put in a TS 6 pos chip with PHP tunes and all i can say is holy cow, what a difference. Switch on the fly better fuel economy,it`s great you won't be dissapointed.
