DP vs. TW

well guys im trying to decide between the DP tuner and TW chip.
I really like the TW it has all the exact levels i want for my truck. but i really like
the DP is because they have the cool remote switch that shows you which level your on. i wish i could use the dp switch with the tw haha.

any of you guys have any suggestions that could help me

when i was trying to decide there was one major factor. with the DP F6 chip i never have to unplug my chip. jody sends me tunes through email. One time i ordered a tune and i called jody and told him i had a truck pull in two days and would like the tune if possible. well the next day at 8 in the morning i had the tune. thats just one story and i know tony has many good ones as well.
both great tuners! cant go wrong with either. . . good luck

soon to go?:
2000 f-250

soon to come?:
6.4 and spartan

I also have the F6 and while I didnt have the money to get all the tunes I want, it sure will be nice to not have to pull the chip while I wait on tunes! But yes it is twice as much--- good luck!

IMO go with TW. That way if you ever decided you want to try any one else tuning all you do is send the chip to ANYONE else that tunes and they can reburn it with there tunes.

With a DP you are stuck with them.

Good point

It is not hard to learn the 6 positons and if it is you can always count the clicks or mark them out some how. I prefer the knob i can put it any where. As to the guage switch DP uses it is just to tempting for others to play with.

I could care less how the postions are selected. I have TW and love it. If I ever tried someone else, DP would be my last choice. To many stories about people blowing motors with DP (even low hp motors). You cant tow with Jodys 80e tune without risking engine failure. Every single one of Tonys tunes has tow safe timing. I have also seen trucks that say their 80e from Jody dynos more power than his 140race

I know many people are happy with Jody. I never plan to use other tunes besides Tonys, and if I did I would be going straight to PHP

Yeah DP tunes the tranny also. Tony tunes shift points, shift timing, shift firmness, line pressure and Im not sure what all else.
