Input on which chip/programmer to choose?
The search feature is your friend, as is research. This is a vast subject, with countless differing opinions, all posted within the archives of threads here and on most other Powerstroke sites, and most all tuners have their own sites, as well.....
I see only "Zoodad" In your sig, and no mention of gauges.
Get them first. Pyrometer(EGT), Boost, and trannytemp gauge at least, then or while youre at it, upgrade the stock intake to at least the DIY Tymar/BHAF/6637 air filter, and either do a muffler delete, or get a nice aftermarket exhaust.
In simple terms, set your truck up to speak and breathe, then think about chips/programmers.

Ya I tried the whole stacking the two chips and programmer thing DOESNT WORK the one that you plug into the computer on your truck just cancels out the one plugged into the obd port and just because you have one chip say it 140 and another say it 100 hp dosent mean you get 240 added to the motor you would be blowing that motor of the frame if it was stock

Stacking is useless.
