I love mine as well. Had it for about a year now and have had no problems with it. Great power and good shifts. For the 250 bucks or whatever it costs, it is definitely worth it.

Only way to go, may want to look at php I think there's is $250-300 and it gets you custom tunes which will have a little better shifting.

Not to hijack your thread but I had a few questions as well and dont see any reason to start a new topic. Ok I'm on my third powerstroke. My first auto. I had the 6 position on my 97 5 speed but it also had bigger injectors, hpop, and an aftermarket impeller. I had a 2000 7.3 mostly stock with exhaust, air filter, and a TS 75HP chip (non-selectible) and a 6 speed. I now have a 2002 F250 CCSB auto. Currently all it has is a 5" turbo back exhaust with muffler delete and a cold air intake. I didnt realize how ""mild" a mostly stock powerstroke was until I got this truck. Id like to get another TS performance chip to get a little more oomph and also because I've had great experience with them. Anyway, I was looking at getting the 6 position again but a buddy of mine said he heard its hard on the auto tranny. Totally opposite from what TS advertises. I guess what I'm trying to ask, is te TS 6 Position okay for a mostly stock 7.3? I have gauges so I can monitor the egts and stuff. I just want to make sure I'm not going to be asking too much from my truck with the chip since its mostly stock. Keep in mind I'm just looking for a little more power and fuel mileage, I'm not trying to drag race or "roll coal" or anything like that. I just like the adjustability of the 6 position. I would probably leave it on the 50 or 75 since I had good results in my last 7.3. If I were to try it on the 100 or 140 setting am I looking at possible problems? Are the higher settings reserved for the 7.3 with other performance parts such as bigger injectors and stuff like that?

Hard....I wouldn't say its hard on the trans but custom tunes are much better with auto's.

HP settings are marketing..what you want is the best performance for the usage..

Example of TW's:

Stock
Economy
Daily
Tow
Heavy tow
Street
Extreme
Smoke
High Idle
Sled pull
These programs are custom built specifically to your truck and modifications.
Economy is designed to increase your fuel mileage.
Daily is a slightly more powerful version of the economy program that adjusts shift points for driving around town.
Tow is going to be approximately 50hp increase for the 94-97 models and 65ish for 99-03 models.
Heavy tow will have shift points adjusted and an increase in power over the regular tow program.
Street Race is for those pesky imports with the coffee can exhausts.
Extreme is for the track.
Sled pull will have shift parameters adjusted to allow the truck to be in drive and not shift out of 2nd gear
Hi Idle is for the cold days to keep the truck warm and the hot days to keep the truck cool.

Just put mine in and I am running Beans tunes. I couldn't be happier with it. Plently of power and smooth shifts through every gear. Can't believe I waited so long.
