I will look into one my only thing is I dont wanna spend ridiculos amont of money for one I would like to stay under 500 if I can and correct me if im wrong but the stock clutch on a manual PSD can with stand 300hp with out upgrading it at some point I would like to get a southbend clutch rated for 500hp and 900ft dont need that much power but a heavier clutch would be nice with towing.

With a HEUI you want someone who knows what they are doing. PHP, Swamps, Beans etc all make good flip chips for the 7.3 and have been for years. You should be able to get a pyro and a boost gauge and a PHP or beans chip for under $500.

I've already got my pyro and boost gauges and I looked up the php chip looks good think I might go with there new one the 17postion Hydra chip found one for under 400 I like that they already have programmes that you can download. Im not lookin for big power out this truck until I have another one so just over 300hp for towing and off roading will fine but I might look into one with less postions I dont see why anyone would need 17 postions unless there racing lol.

I ran a super chips tuner for 10 years. Put the hydra in a couple weeks ago and cleaned the dash off the first time I stepped on it. . There was quite a difference from tuner to chip. Stock to chip will surprise you.

I use the edge juice w/ attitude on my 02 7.3 with an auto and 124K. It is nice. It is adjustable on the fly, and gives me the digital readout of boost, EGT, rpm, and backdown, which is the failsafe in case egt's get too high it automatically defuels. It is a little older model, but it works great and I have no complaints so far.
