first off my truck . 2001 ford f-250 crewcab shortbox . 7.3 with BD compressor wheel, napa 6637, 4" mbrp exhaust, rerouted crank case vent. zf6 stock clutch, 4x4, 3 inch lift, 285's.
in the new year im going to be in the market for a chip. ive done a lot of research on different chips and i think im going to go with a ts style chip, but not sure on who's tunes.
i use the truck truck for driving to work about 75/25 highway city driving, going camping in the bc interior so climbing some decent hills along the coquihalla loaded with people and gear, hauling firewood, the odd time towing car trailers with moderate loads.
the thing im concerned about is at the moment my truck has a slight clunk while im cruising if i let off the throttle . it seems like either excessive backlash in the diff or transmission gears. i greased the splines on the driveshaft it helped slightly, but its still there.
so to make a short story long, now for the question . most of my buddies 7.3's are autos. i ran into a guy who had a 6 speed in his aswell with a dp style chip. i got to talking and he said he also has the same slight clunk with his , but when he has his chip on the clunk gets real excessive, almost undriveable , like when you run a low ohm resistor with the icp mod.
im just wondering if anyone with chipped 7.3's with standards can chime in and let me know how their trucks are driveability wise, whos tunes you have , whos tunes youve tried, and why or why not you like them over someone elses.
thanks guys, kyle
