TUNERS

I am soon to be in the market for a tuner. I want one that will be mounted in the cab and give me on the fly adjustment. I seen a painless-stryker in a jegs catalog that caught my eye. Is anyone using one and if so what are they pro-cons, are does anyone have a suggestion of another brand. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks Jerry

A custom tuned flip chip from Tony Wildman or DP tuner would be my choice for a 7.3L. Add a set of gauges to keep everything safe.

I answered on you're pulling thread. For the 7.3 their are only 2 and that is TW and DP. They are the best don't ask which is better just go to their sites and research and decide which suits You best.

dont go with any of the off the shelf tuners... most of them are crap...

do yourself a favor and get a custom tuned chip like this: Tony Wildman Chip

you will need gauges as well at a min... but intake and exhaust is recommended... let me know if you have any questions
