Ts chip questions

Will a ts 4 position chip that came off of a 1999 7.3 fit my 1997 7.3?
What kinda power difference will I get with this chip?

Thanks

Im not 100% sure, If the ECU numbers match then Im sure it will work.

if not it probably depends on a few other things. I wouldn't count on it working though.

You are probably going to have to send it in to ts and have it re-flashed because of the differences between the new style and obs 7.3s make sure you include your manufacture date and transmission information

the short answer is no. SDs had split shot injectors, OBS (except for the cali models) had single shots. there are also other differences, as well as the fact that there are 2 different "99s" early and late and they are different as well. you are better off sending it away and getting custom tunes from tony wildman, bill at php, matt at gearhead, swamp, beans, etc. much better than canned tunes.

Cary at CT Performance will reburn it with Tony Wildman tunes for $130, including return shipping.

Biggest pain is removing the PCM. Partially removing the inner fender and bending it out of the way with a 2x4 makes things a lot easier.

you can also pull the driver's side kick panel and the e brake and do it without removing the PCM

Wouldn't recommend that method. Seen more than a few fried PCM's due to improperly cleaning the terminal.
