No but the custom tunes run so much better than the factory TS tunes!

Is it safe for me to assume you don't have gauges yet? Get those first, yes its worth it.
Also, a bigger airfilter and free flowing exhaust could/should be done first.
Read all the stickies and save up for a bit.

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I have an egt gauge and boost pillar gauge. The previous owner had a 4" coming off the turbo that switches to a 5" under the cab and into a muffler. I will check out the the stickies. Thanks a ton!!

Custom tunes are much better than the canned from TS. I recently switched to PHP tunes from the canned tunes and I'm much happier with them. I've run four different chips in this truck and so far I like these tunes the best. Stick with the TS style chip so if you want a reburn you won't have trouble finding a good vendor. TW, PHP,Gearhead,Beans all have good reviews so you really can't go wrong with any of them.

Don't get a shop to install a chip, DIY.

ts 6 position chip

The install is pretty easy. The hardest part for me was figuring out where to put the switch. Also, I have the canned tunes and will be switching to custom after my wicked wheel install.

Gotta a quick newbie ? why do they NOT want you to run the chip setting higher than 50hp while towing? I have a 2000 F350 7.3 CAI, 5 inch from turbo to 6 inch stacks. 6 speed manual

Due to the first amendment you have the right to protest our military, our freedom and the right to bear arms, but do that in my front yard and I'll bet my second amendent will stop you
