I guess the 7.3 is a slug :(

After reading all these kill stories, i was so excited to finally get my PHP tunes in. I have exhaust, intake and gauges already, so i thought i was set. Well, i install the programmer, and even on the 140 setting, i cant even beat the other half's Ford Edge

As far as i know, everything is good with my truck, was hitting up to 22 lbs of boost prior to the programmer, now nearing 28 lbs with the programmer.

Now i will never hear the end of it from her because ive been telling her for months that once i have the programmer, i will smoke her

What kind of truck?
CC, SB, LB, dually? F250-550? A lot comes into play.
What were your EGTs?

That doesn't seem right. My wife's car is an edge, and while it's no slug, I'm pretty sure I could take her with my truck. The Edge won't set me back in my seat like the truck will.

I feel for you, but, remember, it's an 8,000 pound truck that while it may not beat her in a race, you will catch her when she runs out of gas, and you can drag it back sideways, all day long.


Wishin I was fishin.
