Is $229 for a TS 6-pos w/ TS tunes a good deal?

I have an opportunity to get a TS 6-pos chip with TS tunes (stock, high idle, 50hp, 75hp, 100hp, and 140 extreme) for $229. It isn't from a private seller, it's from a vendor. I'm just wondering if you guys think that is a good deal and what you think of TS's chips and tunes. I think I read that most tuners can program a TS chip, so if I hate the tunes I should be able to have Tony or somebody else write on my chip, right?

They have too much personal stuff going on. I want to be able to contact my tuner when I'm having issues. I was going to go with PHP a while back, but not anymore.

With a OBS you can't get more than 40-50HP with anyones chip on a 48 state truck as the inj's only flow 98cc's.

So get a TS chip..they come with tunes and once you deside to get larger Inj's get custom.

TW IMO best tuner for a 7.3..

I'm bias as I have only had Beans tunes. I know that there are other tuners out there and I have no degrading opinion on their work. Beans tunes work "pretty" good on the first shipment but I did have to send it back several times to get the truck running the way I wanted it. Tuners here in So.Cal are either looking to sell their own proprietary chip or are Chevy lovers. After about a month and a half of back and forth (which was patients testing as it took a week for the chip to move round trip), they had great service and I started only dealing with the Owner Ryan. So far all the re-burns have been free. When I start pushing my truck further forward I think that I will start using Cary at CT_Performance as he is a lot closer to me then most anyone else.

Truck runs REAL strong but I keep blowing up trannies and haven't gotten her on a dyno for actual numbers.
