Chip or programmer

I have a 2000 Ford f250 7.3 powerstroke with a banks six gun, I wasn't sure if I should stack a chip or programmer or take it off and out one on it. If so whats less hard on a transmission but is good.

ah well most if not everybody will tell you to ditch the banks and get a tw or dp or php chip, stacking will not help, don't get a programmer i made that mistake, programmers mess up the tranny, so 6 position chip and you'll be good

Well it depends on your supporting mods for that tw, php, or any other chip you decide to go with??

But i would definitely not get a programmer, just doesnt allow your truck to run to its full potential like a chip will do for ya.

Cannot agree more, The TW tunes woke it way up from the stock Canned TS Tunes.

Ditch the k&n and put on a 6637, that k&n does not flow enough for our trucks and will dust your turbo
