what chip

i was pretty set on getting a ts 6 position chip for my truck...until a couple of days ago. i said something to my friends and they keep swearing how it will blow my turbo b/c it happened with 2 other friends trucks. so they want me to look into a banks 6-gun. i thought i heard something on here about how guys dont like how banks work on fords?

what do you all think...TS 6-pos or Banks 6-Gun?

Banks makes good stuff, its just a bit pricy. Not sure what to tell you about the turbos, just make sure to get a set of guages to keep everything in check and it always help to get bigger exhaust and better air intake.

Personally... I say neither! DP-Tuner or Tony Wildman...!

If you search on the forums, you'll see where some have pulled the banks stuff off and made more usable, safe power. The 2 mentioned above are the best in the 7.3 industry in tuning IMHO.

I would go with the TS, DP, or T.Wildman over the Banks. More bang for your buck. Did your friends have gauges and suck so they did not melt it down. That is about the only thing I could think of that would cause problems. Intake, exhaust, gauges, and then the chip is what you need to do.

I say go with Tony... some time down the road I am going to send him my TS 6 pos. and have him put a couple of coustum burn files on there for me.... and if you don't like the files that he has burned for you.. you can send it back to him and he will reburn them for free..... Tony is on this site I would talk to him and see what he says....
