Well i posting this cause i'm looking for all the input i can get. I'm currently looking at a tony wildman chip And was curious if any one can give me input on these and if there might be a better chip to put in my truck. Or in fact tell me about all the options from all company's like which ones are good bad harmful to your engine, transmission so far there are no upgrades to my truck as of yet i dont need prices or where to find them just some info on them.

the TW chip is a custom tuned chip which will be the best for your truck.. you should be running gauges at the min for any tuner or chip...

what dont you like about the chip?

ah k... well i have a TW chip and i got it before i actually offered them on my site... owning one is what actually sold me on becoming one of his vendors.. i think its by far one of the best chips out for the 7.3L and the best thing i have ever tried on my 7.3L

He sells the TW on his site, so naturally he will say good things about it. He will also chime in here ina bit and tell you the DP is just as good. Both tuners are GREAT with the 7.3.

I ran a superchips 1705 for a long time, they can be had for cheap on E-bay, nice little chip, kinda rough on the tranny though. I run a TW now, and am sold on custom tunes, it blows the superchip outa the water. From everything I've read DPs are also great chips to. But yea at the very least buy a Pyrometer Gauge if your gonna chip your truck.
And yes I know superchip isn't a chip before it gets said again
