well i'm probably not going to be the only one to tell you this, but you shoud get rid of the diablo and get the 6 position chip. They are a lot easier on your tranny and that one is tunned specifically to your computer if i remember correctly.

for a 6 pos chip you are looking at $475. a Great price for a custom tuned chip. Talk to Raul at Stealth and he will hook you up.

Yes you can install it yourself. There is even a video link (Raul can tell you the exact link) of how to install the chip. I did it myself in about 1 hour taking my time.

Do it... TW all the way.

Agreed I have many superduty buddies that have run superships and bunch of other programmers and everyone that has gotten the TW chip have had nothing but positive things to say about the way there truck performed compared to the other programers/chips.
Also put in every mod that you have done to your truck when ordering the chip so that Tony can customize your chip exactly to your trucks mods!!!

any custom chip will be better then that, but its just depends on your budget. Some other chips are more and a few are less.

I wouldn't erase DP off the list either. Put it this was, 7 years ago when I was researching tunes I couldn't find one person who used a generic tune and a custom tuned and said they liked the generic tune better. That should speak volumes to you, it did me. And in the last 7 years I still haven't found a single person who prefered generic over custom!!
