New 99 PSD

I just got my hands on a later 99 6 speed with litterally 4800 miles on it. Getting it straight piped next week and now looking to get a programmer to help mileage and add horsepower. Thinking about a bully dog gt since it has all the gauges. I read that these are hard on tranny's but with a manual i shouldn't have that problem. Whats your opinion on what i should get?

No.......but they make better performance and longetivity. And please don't get the TS chip, it has generic tunes . Get one from someone that has made a commitment to making the 7.3 run better, like Tony Wildman, or DP. The TS was better than nothing, yes. Then I rode in a wildman tuned truck....night and day difference, I have also driven a DP tuned truck. They are very comperable to one another.

I've allready done it, went for the cheaper fix, didn't listen to anyone who told me not to do it. Then had to go back and do what I was told to do in the first place. If you are as hard headed as I am, then I understand, you gotta do what you gotta do. Find some members near you, and go for test drives, prove it to yourself before you spend any money.

Most people here are more than willing to let you check it out and see what it's like in the real world.
