TW CHIP?

Im wanting to get a TW chip for my 02 7.3. I now have the edge and all i hear is bad things about it so it has to go. My question about the TW Chip is there much of a difference between stock and economy? I know with my edge i gained nothing.

here is my suggestion on tunes then...
high idle, daily, tow, heavy tow, street, extreme

and if you wait for this weekends sale you can get a 6 position for the price of a 4 position chip

the one in a full kit only have the 3 standard gauges you need...

just FYI but that fuel pressure gauge by itself is over 200 bucks... so its not a cheap gauge

I've heard from NUMEROUS TW chip users that they get the best mileage in Extreme, and often times WORSE mileage in an economy setting. So I would just eliminate an economy tune altogether.
