TW Chip Post install

Howdy Fellas. Had a little G2G at my house, and CHUCK installed the TW chip on my truck, and boy what a difference. Wow, anyone holding off on a custom chip to go from canned tunes (that I was running for 2 days) boy what a difference. The power is always there, its amazing! I need to calm down though that chip will get me in trouble...spinning 35's with no problem what so ever, stopped at a light going uphill with a slight bit of moisture on the ground, I couldn't even go anywhere in street, just spun the tires! Wow is all I can say! Very happy with the tunes, very happy with the truck in general, boy this 7.3 is something! Anyway, tunes list (Econ, Daily, Heavy Tow, Street, Extreme, High Idle). Now I just have to start saving up for my built tranny haha, not sure on how long this one will last with me messing around all the time. Alrighty, so far no improvement on fuel mileage (never had it in econ, and it was idling for 4 hours or so last night) so i'll let y'all know when I drive back to Cali though.

Morning Phil! Wished I had been able to make the G2G but I didn't. I know exactly how you feel. My TW has Stock, Econo, Daily, Tow, Heavy Tow and Street. If I had it to do all over again I would have had the tranny built before I got the tune. More than likely you will be gettin' it done real soon. I could only get 12,000 miles out of a stock tranny with the chip....twice!
I keep mine on Daily until I see a challenge (another diesel) or a Prius in my sights. Then my hand naturally falls on the switch and over to street. I can't imagine what extreme would be like. I have found, as have others, that Street is best for fuel economy as long as you don't "play" with it. And brother, as you know, is hard to do! Have fun but say "bye" to the tranny.

Thanks for all the comments! Yes I understand my tranny will be soon dead. I am actually not on it very often, it was fun to test out, but I need to care for this truck, and make it last as long as I can. Next on the ToDo list is install the HID's that I have, then start the long process to save up for a built tranny. Now the reason it idled for so dang long, was we had a misshap on I85, and was trying to help a buddy out. Was running my aftermarket lights most of the time to shed some light on the situation, and really didn't feel like having a dead truck haha. I averaged it to about 4 hours, probably close to that. Anyway, if I would do it all over again, I would definately get the tunes again! Only ran it in extreme once, couldn't get traction the whole time...but I have a race against my mom's barn manager in her F150 tomorrow (bone stock) and if I win she has to buy the drinks...if she wins I have to buy her drinks...so I figure I could embarrass a fellow Ford owner (have sympathy for the gas 1/2 tons I own one as well), and no matter what happens I win! lol...I'll get a video of it too...post that sucker up here. Anyway very happy with the result!
