Programmer issue??????

I have a 2000 F-250 with a Bully dog programmer (6 position), 5 inch exhaust and K&N set-up. The last few times I have driven the truck (all in the last 3 days), if I run 2 through 5 positions on the programmer the truck will barely pull itself. Number 1 position is susposed to be stock (6 is just a high idle). After the truck has been driven for 15 to 20 minutes, it will run fine in the 2 and 3 position (noticable power increase). Until then, only the number 1 position will allow the truck to run more than 20 mph. The 4 and 5 position never did seem to do anything more than 2 or 3 do. Any ideas?

OK, I was considering the Edge Attitude. I dont run the truck hard and really am more interested in fuel economy than anything. The next one is going to be the hot rod.

Just because I'm cheap. I would sent it to Raul @ Stealth Automotive or directly to Tony Wildman @ TDP . He can determine if your chip is in fact bad, and if it's ok, he can re-burn it for you at a much lower cost with custom tunes than buying another setup. Wildman tunes are great for the 7.3 you will not be disappointed. If it can't be fixed it won't cost you anything other than the postage!

Edge dosen't tune the tranny , TW tunes will. With fewer downshifts and earlier lock up, you can use all that 7.3 tourque, fewer downshifts, less high RPM, better economy.

Best of luck,


Jason

I definitely recommend custom tunes anything off the shell is no match for custom. They will give more mpg and more power
