7.3 programmer question

Hey guys I have a 2001 7.3 with an auto tranny and I was wondering if an sct sf3 programmer would work on my truck. I don't want anything extremely crazy. Iwould like a programmer that plugs into the diagnostic slot, not a chip that plugs into pcm. Any suggestions? Thanks

Curious why you would rather have a programer over a chip? A chip is far better, in every way.

Just seem a little simpler and heard programmers have less of a chance of messing something up, unlessthat's not true. That's why I'm asking! Thanks

The programing on a programer is much more generic for the most part. A chip has more access to the PCM, and can be more easily tuned for your particular mods...

I would look into the Power Hungry Performance Hydra chip... Best option on the market. Take some time and read this link...

i agree with csipsd.

do some reading, a chip from a custom tuner is the way to go
