Overwhelmed by tuner/chip choices. Please help me narrow it down.
I've got a late 99 7.3, 4x4, 33" tires, SRW, crew cab, AT, Banks 6-gun, Banks Trans-Command, 4" turbo back exhaust, Big Head wastegate, 6637 filter kit & AIH plug in the mail. It's my work truck as well as my DD. It's on the heavy side weighing in at about 10.5K so it won't get out of it's own way unless I'm deep in the throttle. I'm not looking for a race car, just the most I can reliably get out of it.
I'm not happy with the Banks electronics at all & it's going to go on ebay. So I'm after the best chip/tuner I can get for my application. I don't have gauges as my 6-Gun takes care of that which I like. I was looking into the PHP/Evolution tuner so I don't have to purchase gauges. But then I hear so much about DP, TW, "Beans", etc... I have no idea WTF to go with. Would I have a better combo if I went with a chip & gauge pillar setup vs an all in one electronic tuner? Is there much difference in performance between the above mentioned? I don't want to make a bad purchase as I did with my Banks stuff. As I'm sure everyone is, I'm looking for max fuel milage when I want it, max power when I want it, drivetrain longevity, & a smoke setting to hose down the booming rapper homeboy guys at the stoplights. Please give me your .02. Thanks a bunch.
