DP tuner F5 vs F6 chip?

so my TS chip took a dump on me so im in the market for a good chip now. i wanted to wait until i get most of my mods done before i spend the money on a DP chip but after my TS experience ild rather spend a bit more and pay for what i get. not knocking TS it was great when it worked but it only lasted about a week or so. so whats the difference between the F5 chip and F6 chip? why should i spend the extra $200 on the F6?

The F5 and F6 chips function the same way and hold the same amount of tunes. The difference is that the F5 must be sent back in to us if you ever want to add tunes or update your current ones. The F6 will connect to your computer/laptop via USB and you will be able to upload the tunes onto the chip yourself without ever having to remove the chip from the truck. We just e-mail you the tunes and you put them on the chip. It is very simple and convenient.

With the F6 you can also test tunes before buying them. They will work for 10 key cycles and then they will disappear. If you like/want the tune, then you can just purchase it. If not, then no further action is needed.

Let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to help you out.

What are the physical differences between F5 and F6? My new to me truck has one but am not sure which one it is.

BTW, the truck is a complete different animal going from the stock tune to a performance tune.

Im guessin here, but the F6 probably has a USB port, where the F5 wouldn't.

That is correct. You can see in the pictures where the USB port is located.
