Exclamation TS 6 Position programmer for 97 7.3 HELP!

Hey guys. I just purchased a 97 7.3 with an automatic transmission and it came equipped with a TS 6 position programmer. The gentleman I purchased it from never used it and told me the guy he bought it from installed it. I'm slowly learning the reigns of the diesel world and I know absolutely squat about this chip. I called TS and was told they can't tell me whats on the chip unless I send it in but what I'm really looking for is a general instruction manual or even one of you guys to help me out. I don't want to start fiddling around with it and screw anything up. I really don't want to take out the chip unless I have to. Any knowledge you guys have is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you want to know who's tunes than you have to send it in, but you could drive it in every setting to figure out what they are good for

I bought a new TS 6 postion chip ($300)
Got it put on last night. Can you say hello horsepower?
This is how it's programmed
1. stock settings
2. high idle for cold starts
3. 50HP/90 ft-lbs torque
4. 75HP/140 ft-lbs torque
5. 100HP/185 ft-lbs torque
6. 140+ EXTREME/260 ft-lbs torque
I have the intake and straight pipe with stock injectors
Got a 5 speed so tranny temp won't be an issue
It will put out some black smoke but not really rolling coal.
I can't believe how big of a difference even on the lower settings!
