Best Chip

Im buying a 01 7.3 and was wondering what the best chip would be to get. If I went with the 6 pos chip who has best tunes and where is the best place to buy. How does a bully dog or edge work for these. I know what to do for the 6.0 but not 7.3.

Don't get a BD or Edge. Go with your first idea.
Beans, Swamps, BTS, Innovative, Gearhead, Tony Wildman, and PHP all have great ones.

You can, but no need to.
Flash tunes are best for a 6.0 because of the TCM module.
No such thing on these, it's all in the PCM. That's why the on the fly chips are popular on 7.3s and not 6.0s

Just got through this process. There are TS Chips (6 position) with many different vendors supplying their own tune. Bruce's suggestions are solid, reputable tuners of the TS Chips.

A second option is DP tuner which is relatively similar, but use a different chip.

I originally purchased a TS Chip from PHP which was a big mistake. I cannot recommend PHP to anyone. Their price was the least expensive but the customer service is atrocious. Instead, i gave DP a try with VERY positive results.

The MOST important thing in purchasing a tuner (for me) is customer service. I want to know how responsive the vendor is to my inquiries, reburns, and returns (if required). Do your research, pick a vendor and contact them via the phone. Ask the vendor a couple questions. You'll find most will not answer. Pick from those who do respond quickly and in detail.

I'm totally happy with the PHP Phoenix I got.

PHP is a small mom & pop kind of shop. They don't have lots of staff.

Agreed. What they do have are lots of excuses. Like i said, just give them a call and ask a few questions. No harm in that.
