My buddy just got a 97 powerstroke and was wondering what the best chip for it was? Thanks for any help

It's best to do the whole exhaust/gauges/intake first of course

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

Most guys will agree that a TS-6 chip is the best but it will turn into a fist fight when you start asking who's tunes for said chip are the best lol.

And as stated, supporting mods after.

Oh and tell him to get off his duff and get on the org himself. We OBS boys are always headhunting new blood
