Can't stack chips.
Superchips Max 1705 Vinlock means the tuner is "Vin-Locked" to another truck. You can plug it in a push buttons all day long and it isn't going to program your truck.
Buy a TS chip and have it burned with custom tunes. Both of the programmers you mentioned were written back when Cher was the #1 on the Billboard charts.
You aren't going to get where you're trying to go using either one of them.

Since you are new here, a word of caution. The fastest way to get a thread closed is to talk about smoke, rolling coal etc. A custom tune will help with power but there are other mods that can be done to help even more. Also 99% if not all of the custom chip burners will not burn a chip that will help you make smoke on purpose. There are powerstroke owners out there making much more horsepower than stock but have nothing more than a haze from the exhaust and in today's world of epa regulations that is cool.
