F-650 with 7.3. Can I add chip/programmer?

I just purchased a 2003 F650 with the 7.3 / 6 speed manual in it. Can I add a chip or programmer to it, or is the 650 a total different animal? If I can, I'm open for suggestions on which chip or tuner would work best.

I have had a bully dog adjustable on the fly setup on my 2000 f250 for years, and it really woke it up. Just hoping to do the same to the "new to me" 650.

Thanks in advance.
Kenny

Check to see if it has a similar set up for the PCM would be my first guess

Best thing to do is CAN the whole idea and sell that truck to me. Thats a good looking truck! But considering you probably wont sell it to me, PHP is looking for Navistar 7.3s to do tune testing on. Check out there website.

LOL. She has a few bumps and bruises, but I think it will work well for what I need. I will check out the PHP site. Thanks

I didn't know you could get a 7.3 in a 650. I thought the 650's only had cat or cummins as options, and the only medium duty truck with a 7.3 was International.

Your 7.3l has the same Ford PCM as the 1999 to 2003 7.3l's. Its just a different DPC family number. We tune 650's frequently. Give us a call with the PCM code and we'll get you set up. Your truck's PCM family should be a DPC-461. Check it out and let us know.
