ECM?

I have a friend that has a early 1999 7.3 Powerstroke. He is wondering if he can do a early 2003 7.3 flash burn on his ECM to get a better tuned engine with better preformance? Let me know what you think and if you have done this.

The early 99 is missing hardware to work with the late99-03 programing. You need to get a new PCM. I got mine for $100 delivered from car-parts.com and then had DP tuner reflash it.

Keep Strokin'

If it is an automatic from all the people that I have talked to plus the genus above (he knows everything about early 99s) the ecm with PMT1 or 2 will make your tranny shift so much better and I got mine off of car-parts.com for $115 shipped to my door and the PMT code ecm will have the best tuning. I put mine in last night and it made the world of difference.

If I buy a new computer for around $115 like yall did will it come flashed and ready to run? Is it a direct swap? Will I have to have my chip reburned to work with it? I would really like to get my tranny to shift better. Is it really worth it?
Thanks for the info

It all depends on the PCM you buy. Of you have a Buddie that has a 01-02, take the numbers off of the PCM. From there you can get the exact replacement PCM for that year of truck. However you will need the chip re-flashed.
