TS style chip truck Swap

Ok i searched around some and i cant seem to find an answer to my questions, i have a buddy that has a 2000 F350 auto Dually. when he bought the truck there was what looks like a TS style chip in it that he knows nothing about. His dad was told at some mechanics shop that it will burn out the computer and that he should buy a bully dog instead anyway when he gets his new chip he said he would sell me his old TS style chip for $70 his loss my gain i guess anyway, i was wondering is there any way to tell if this is just a standard TS chip or if it has been custom tuned? and by who? also will it work ok on my 2000 F250 that has a manual tranny or will i have to get it re-burned?
Thanks
Cody

i had a dp and as long as it was going to a similar truck there was no issue just dont go stick to auto tranny but you can go the other way on theirs. does he know of anything else thats been done to the truck like injectors? alot of times where you buy your injector (ex. beans diesel) will build the chip to those injectors.

well as far as i know it has gauges and 4" exhaust, i think it is stock otherwise, but he bought it at a dealer so he has no history on it so who knows what has been done to it. at that price i dont feel like i can pass it up i guess, if he goes thrugh with it.

Just as long as it wasnt programmed for a truck that had injectors in it, you should be ok for awhile, i did the same thing with a friend that had a 02 and my truck is an 01. The only thing that i see that is wrong is that my water in fuel light has been once since i installed the chip cuz it wasnt programmed for my pcm but if it is reburned it will be all fine!

if its tuned for injectors it could destroy yours (i know sounds drastic) i'm not sure what all the ts chips can control but without knowing for sure the real specs on the truck i would be very weary of just tossing it in there and going.

Thanks for the info.... How can I tell if it has different injectors? Even if I take the valve cover off they don't look any different right? I have been wanting stage 2's anyway so maybe I should just go with it :-)
