Question URGENT!!! Got some questions about my 7.3

How can i get better milage out of my 7.3?
Is a TS 6 pos. chip the way to go? Is it safe?
How much is too much for a automatic 4r100 transmission?

I have a 2002 f-250, the only mod as of right now is a bank's 4" turbo back w/ power elbow exhaust...

Go with a TW or DP tuner chip, or there is one other custom tuner for the 7.3, Bill at PHP or something, gotta give him some credit too. Way better than a TS.

To answer you about the trans, its a crap shoot, ive had mine chipped with a TW for a few months, im pretty rough on it and its still holdin together. Thats not to say however that yours wont go out a week later. They go out in stock form, let alone chipped.

How many miles you got on it?

What kind of mileage are you getting?

First thing is to keep the RPM's below 2000.

Hand calculated 20MPG is pretty darn good.
