looking for a tuner

so i have a 95 F350 with a 7.3L factory turbo and auto tranny. i have a moto blue 4in S/S exhaust on the truck now. i have a K&N cold air intake on the way. i am wondering what turner/chip would be the best for my truck. the truck is a daily driver so has to be reliable but would like to have tons of power too... i know thats alot to ask for but hey gotta try right? but ya any opinions would be great thanks....

Big mistake going for the K&N, send it back and get your money and put it towards an AFE, or if your on a budget you can always make a DIY setup with a napa filter. Also get gauges before you chip the truck, need to be checking your temps. And like mentioned before me, A six position flip chip from tony would be the best.

i agree with canadian stroker, the K&N was a mistake. definently send it back and get an airaid or afe. the K&N lets in a lot of air but it also lets in a lot of dirt. thats a big NO NO! i have a dp-tuner and i love it. just talk to jody and he will set u up with what ever u want. if u want smoke with low power he can do it, smoke and high power he can do it, no smoke and power he can do it, fuel milage he can do it.

96 F250 powerstroke ext auto converted to 5 speed, 4 inch lift, DP-tunes, 260k, its been swamped....

First off your going to need gauges, get them befor you get a chip. Also, as mentioned send the K&N back and get either a AFE or do like me and many others have and make your own with a 4" SS elbo, and a napa filter.

As far as a chip. I have a DPTuner from Jody and Diane Tipton

Go here:

If you have any questions call and talk to them their customer service is top notch!
