Solid Tuner for a 7.3

I know all about the 6.4's, but my buddy is looking at getting a tuner for his 97 7.3. I have been looking through the forum, and just wan't sure what the TD and TW were. Any help would be great. I didn't want him to make the same mistake as I did, and buy three different tuners before he found one that he likes.

TD im not sure i've heard of that one. The main 2 i'd say is probably Tw=Tony Wildman and DP tuner. They are custom chips that help the truck out a lot. There is others like Swamps and PHP. I run a TS and I actually like it. Any more questions?

I've ran DP Tuner and Swamps. I do not have a very good comparison between the two because I went from stock injectors to 238 hybrids with DP and then to 300's with swamps.

DP Was a very good daily driver and good fuel economy. I'm still trying to keep my truck on the road with the 300's for enough time to judge.

Tony Wildman at www.totaldieselperformance.com or Bill Cohron at Power Hungry Performance - Feed your hunger for POWER! Check out our Gryphon Programmer for Ford vehicles!

Those 2 are my favorite tuners. I have an assortment of TS, Bully Dog, and a DP-Tuner f5 sitting in my garage. I've used a few tuners before.

Maybe. Offer a reasonable price and I just may sell it. You will need to send it to Jody for tunes. It is setup for hybrids. She put out over 420hp with the 60hp tow tune.
