eh i think you can use them both but with our stock injectors and fuel system, it wont do a whole lot more. you NEED INJECTORS!!!!!!! i know i aint got em either but its one of the most crucial steps. you can do the rosewood diy injectors for what $300??? and they go from 90cc to 160cc!!!!!!

Get the tw chip and you won't need the 18k mod. Also get gauges as well. Also in my opinion the 18k mod is not worth doing same for the 10k mod. Spend the money and get the custom tunes from TW.

I have just the 18k mod and I was told that a chip is pointless untill I get larger injectors. I was also told that the 18k mod will add more power stacked with a chip as soon as I get the injectors.

the 18k mode can in no way compete with the TW chip.... get the TW chip and you will be very satisfied with it... later one when you do upgarde injectors you can send us the chip back and we will reburn it for free for your new mods

I aggree, get the chip, loose the 18k mod and be happy. Trust me I hear more and more people loosing the 18k mod and getting chips everyday. Especially once they ride in a truck that is equipped with a custom tune chip.

I Purchased the TW chip, but I overheated my exhaust pulling a 30 ft fifth wheel. I used the heavier tow setting. I have a 1996 OBS F350 7.3, and 3" DP and 4" exhaust. Also K&N factory style filter. What is next for my truck? One Mod seems to lead to another. I'm thinking intercooler, but is there a easier way, or do I need to send My TW chip back to get it checked out?

what do you mean you overheated your exhaust? what were our EGT's at? a IC should def be your next upgrade... it can drop the egt's by more than 200 degress
