Got the ts chip and it killed the truck. No Start

I put the chip in and it the truck would not start. I pulled the chip back out and put my Banks chip back in and she fired right up. The guy I bought it from said it came out of a early 99 7.3 truck and said it would plug right in and run. Now I'm looking at a complete reburn, Right? Who does the reburn on these chips without charging a small fortune. Already have 220.00 in the chip already.

an early 99 has a completely different pcm/wiring system than an obs, so yes your looking at a whole new reburn

That figures. When it pours it rains!! So my great deal is now going to cost me more than it would have to buy a new Chip from ts. Are there any place that can reburn it that don't cost over $100.00?

I just got off the phone with TS Performance and they will reburn the chip for $50.00 for my truck with the tunes in the position I want. So my good deal is still less than a new chip would cost. Just won't have it in the truck for another two weeks . At least it will be the correct tune this time.

Jim

Hopefully this is me in two weeks!!

The cheapest I can get a custom tune for it is 150.00. I want to wait till I upgrade the injectors and the turbo to a WW2 then I will pony up for the cutom tunes.

I would do that but I'm just getting by on what I earn right now and don't have the extra money right now to pay for the tunes. Once I get a regular full time job I will defiantly get the improved tunes.

Or...wait a couple weeks, save up, and get the custom tunes. They run a lot better, especially if you have an auto. Have patience, spend a little more on some things up front, and it won't cost you more in the long run.

If you truly don't have the money why are you even trying to mod the truck?
