What chip is best?

Hey guys got a quick question for you. I have a early 99 already running a super chips 1705 tuner. I am going to put a chip on it just not for sure which one. Thought I had it narrowed down with the dp tuner . But I have seen some good stuff from php on the forum. A buddy of mine gave me a f5 chip he had in his truck just have to get it reburned for mine. So my question is which one would y'all choose ? I am eventually going to put stage 2 injectors and upgrade the turbo. Any help would be appreciated . Thanks

I just switched from a superchip to a PHP hydra and wish I had done it a long time ago. No experience with others.

Saved up the money and bought the chip and had the 80econo install. also have no start and stock but at no cost. Soon, probably after xmas going to install 100hp tune to see my gas mpg compaired to the 80econo? Haven't been on a long trip yet so I can't really say, but my truck weights 9k alone.

This ? Has been asked a million times.

I have run both dp and ts chips. There are many that like ea. I prefer ts style chip over dp but either choice will be worlds better than superchips.
I think php tunes are awesome. Beans tunes are great as well, I just dont like the shift point into od. Tonywildmans tunes are a great option as well. I am perfectly happy working with Bill and his tunes (php).

We can get you some tunes on that F5 if you are interested. Also, when you upgrade injectors and turbo we will be able to get you tunes for that setup too.

Let me know if you have any questions.

So infrnl is there a big difference in the two chips. Im leaning towards the dp chip because I have it. But would it be worth while later on to try to get a php chip. Also at the beginning of the year I plan on getting a John wood torque converter and vb from him. I hear dp does a good job on tuning his vb. I have to get rid of this loud azz torque converter lol. It is driving me crazy.
