vibration problem

I have a 2000 f-250 7.3 with a dp-tuner f5 chip and gauges. every thing else is completely stock. i noticed the other nite driving in the 80 hp econ mode i accelerated hard from 50 to 75 and i could fell a vibration thru the fuel pedal and floor boards. I tried the same thing in the stock mode and the vibration was gone . any help would be great...

I don't have your answer, but I have felt similar shakes in my truck. I think the range of possibilities goes all the way from tires to tranny to driveshaft. here's a bump up for you. I did notice recently that some of my "shakes" from dead stop went away when i put on new weels and tires. i'm still at basically stock size.

Early 99 (7/98) F-350 CC 4X4 AT 7.3L 200K mi - 4" turbo back w/muffler - AFE Stage 2 - PMT1 ECM - DP 40T/DECEL/80E - dual trans coolers - HPX - Fuel CCK - Auto Meter Trans/EGT/Boost - 3.73 - stock tires
