Little gain with stage 3 hypertech tune

How much gain should I see with any tuner? I can feel the firm trans shifting but the power is slightly noticeble.

I'm taken the truck to Hallas Performance saturday to get looked at and just wanted some idea of what could be wrong. The truck runs smooth and smoke free.

I do not have any gauges so boost could be leaking. Some slight crakle once in awhile.

2000 7.3l all stock except for tune. I bought the tuner because my truck was so dang slow when i bought it used. Currently has 192,000 miles.

First off I would get rid of the hypertech tuner they arent very good and you will be enjoying some nice gains with a custom tuned chip, but if you did that I would highly suggest getting an intake gauges and exhuast.

I'll probally end up sending my PCM to Dp Tuners for a 80hp Tow setting or go to the Edge New Evolution tuner with PIDS.

How sluggish should the truck feel bone stock?

It wont feel fast thats for sure, also if I were you I would save up and get a custom tuned TW or DP tuner, dont get the evo they arent great and are known to kill transmissions.

I test drove a 96 f250 Powerstroke like 5 years ago and that thing flat out hauled. My truck isn't even close. Are the old generation superduties faster?

was that 96 stock? and yes your truck would be faster than a 96 if they are both stock

Unknown if the 96 PSD was stock. I test drove it off a Ford dealer lot. Could have been chipped. It definetly looked and sounded stock.

have someone check the HPOP pressure, if it's low you won't see much gains from any chip/tuner
