All this talk about tunes and programmers

Ok guys, all this talk about tunes and programmers and im still confused. Im looking to buy a programmer, and have read many many pages but i still have questions.

I have read about TW, Beans, and may others, but i havent been able to figure out where exactly to buy them from?

What kind of tunes or programmers do you guys run, and where did you get it?

Dp tuner . com is one that is widely used.

Google search "custom tunes of the 7.3 powerstroke"

Go to Swamps diesel website or beans diesel performance website

PHP tune .com

Bottom line is if you are just starting into the power game, take your pick and you will be satisfied with how it wakes up your truck. A lot of guys who get a programmer switch to custom tunes very quickly so just skip that step.

Call the tuners and visit with them, they will be glad to talk to you about your needs for your truck.
