Programmers,chips,e.t.c!

I'm new to the diesel truck world. I traded my 05 Z71 truck for a 01 f-350 dullay. It's 2wd and crew cab. I am wondering what upgrades are good. Like programmers and chips and turbos. I don't know anything so if you will please put good brands with them as well.

It all depends on what your plans are for the truck. Daily Driving, fun or both?

Basically this order:
Intake (DIY is popular), free flowing exhaust, gauges to not melt anything, then a custom burnt chip from Tony Wildman, Beans, Swamps, Gearhead, Innovative, PHP, DP, and others.

What do you want? Goals? Use for the truck?

1. Never a "programmer". Always a chip. beans and tony wildman are the best for these 7.3's.
2. you can do a LOT with the stock turbo... why do you need a turbo.

What what is the difference in programmers and chips? What do they do? And I don't need a turbo, what all can you do to it. It has a wicked wheel in it.

Programmer is bland, just ups fuel, causes high egt's, beats up the tranny, and lower output than chip. also, cant adapt for turbo or fuel.

chip physically takes over the ECU and gives the truck all new "brains".

The WW just stops surge. Actually flows less than stock.

Until YOU actually see with YOUR eyes what the tuning on the myriad of flash programming devices actually DOES, please quit telling people those lies.

I'm not a jerk, I just tell it like it is.

So you are telling us that edge/superchips/the likes are good for your vehicle and produce optimal results?

There are plenty of people on here with blown trannies due to such "programmers" and nearly everybody running the programmers has higher EGT's than those with custom tunes.

I think you two have different definitions.
A programmer just overwrites the pcm with a tune, CUSTOM OR GENERIC, and is no hardware is left in the truck.
A chip overrides the pcm with a physical piece of hardware. The tunes can be CUSTOM OR GENERIC as well.
Clear?

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
