Cant speak for TS. But i have a TW, and LOVE it. I actually just met up with Tony a month ago or so to switch some tunes and do a little live tuning. I had a tire blow out on the way and was about 2 hours late. Tony still took the time to do some live tuning and switch some tunes, couldnt ask for a nicer guy.

My 7.3 even impresses some of those stuck up Cummins owners, and its because of the tunes

Thanks, leaning real hard on the TW...I just dont need (dont have the transmission for the extreme or high HP levels..but I guess room for growth is always good.

I ahve a 99.5 with 83,000 miles on it and I really want it to last a long time....I have a Superchips 1705 for sale if anyone wants it. I will put my saved stock program back in the truck and the 1705 comes with 2 levels , the tow safe setting or the HP setting which is advertised for no more than 4000lbs. both tune the trans as well.

a note of interest...I have a factory high idle for cold wx...will that still work with TW tunes? My truck will automatically start an 1100 rpm high idle for the cold (after proper conditions are met) and I need that.

Raul beat me to it. TS is just generic tunes. Many, many tuners use the TS 6 position chip because it's easy to burn tunes to.

Tony's tunes are hard to beat, but if you order a chip from him, for God's sake have some patience, there's way too many people out there who order and expect their custom burned chip to show up within a few days.

PHP (Power Hungry Performance) has been putting out some excellent tunes lately and everyone seems to be impressed with them.

DP-Tuner. which doesn't use a TS chip, has a huge range of tunes available and they are all excellent, but be prepared to pay. The upside is Jody frequently goes out and does live tunes for people.
