Wanting to switch gears from TW to something else

So im getting kind of bored with my TW chip.. Its a great chip but it doesn't really perform like I want. Input from the guys running the PHP's and DP's would be great. My truck isn't really modded all that much, I really just want optimum performance for what I have. Not really looking to run the quarter or anything, just something to fine tune with current mods. THANKS

2002 F-250 POWERSTROKE 4X4

BANKS 4" Turbo-Back w/ Power Elbow
Converted from 3/4 to 1TON
Napa 6637 DIY Intake
6.0 Trans. Cooler
Dipricol Gauges
Warn Hubs
TW 6 Pos.

And Some Other Boring Stuff

THANK GOD FOR YOUR BLESSINGS EVERYDAY

if you have stock injectors pretty much every tuner gets the same hp out of them, about the biggest difference between them would be the shifting....

time for a vacation, ban me

i was just about to say that... there is soo much someone can do with a "stock" truck.. without bigger mods like injectors or Fuel they are all going to generally be around the same HP....

What they said.... If you are still wanting to change tuners give matt at gearhead a call. my second choice would be swamps or beans

Talk to me Raul, I really would like to see some better performance from the transmission as far as shifting goes.

Any other insight from the guys running Beans tunes or the Gearhead guys???

How old are Tony's tunes? His new ones are sweet. If yours are 2 years old have them reburned..

PM me the problems your having with the shifting... most of it can be fixed with tuning... but an aftermarket converter and upgraded valvebody will make it shift even better with the right tuning
