PHP could load "stock" tunes to the programmer instead of the "Modified" tunes most people would buy. Your diesel would be much happier with a bigger exhaust and intake first though. Getting the tunes last just means that you wouldn't have to send it back later to have it re-burned to the new mods.
Difference between a programmer and a chip is how it effects the PCM. A chip is a piggyback device that takes the signals from the sensors and the PCM and "adjusts" them on the fly to suit your driving needs as well as giving you up to 15 different "tunes" at the ready depending on the job at hand. A programmer flashes the PCM with it's program over the factories program, replacing it. This can take s e v e r a l minutes to do. The chip is as fast as let off go pedal, click the knob, step on go pedal. The big advantage of the programmer is that they have a screen that lets you monitor the sensors. Chips can't do that.
As a third option DP has the Infinity programmer that also activates a chip. All the monitoring ability (more actually as the CTS only sees so much, and the infinity you can add sensors to the programmer to see more) of a programmer with the speed of a chip. The Infinity is design and programmed to your truck. All the PIDs that Ford monitors are available on the Infinity
