Talking TS Chip help

I bought 2001 7.3 ext cab and it had TS chip installed already...It has like a black cord with a dial knob at the end...I see like 9 positions you can dial it to but have no idea which tune is which?..I do know while cycling through them one of them raises idle but thats all...First question is is there anyone i can mail it to and they reprogram it and tell me what each will do?.. 2. How much with this cost? 3. should I take it off and will computer return to normal?/// THANKS ALOT in advance...Previous owner had no clue..he bought from a guy and didnt ask about it?...

You will not be able to see a difference till you drive in each position. Most put the tunes in ascending order. I would just play with it and get a feel of what you think you might have.
Anyone with a ts burner and software can read the chip. You can send it to any ts tuner, but not sure how much they charge to read it.

If you take the chip out, the truck will return to stock unless someone had the pcm flashed too.

Also see how it shifts. if it has harsh shifts, then it most likely has canned tunes. Even though it appears that there are 9 or so positions, only 6 can be used. there should be a washer deal with a finger to drop in one of the holes to adjust how many positions can be accessed.

Hope this helps
