Re-Burn Chip?

I have this bully dog chip, can it be re-burned by tony or someone to their chip then or do I have to buy a whole new one. I didnt know if it was better to get a new one or is it cost effective to get it re-done....

Your best bet is just to buy a TW. I know it's the more expensive route, but it's a piece straight from Tony, instead of recycling tunes on a chip. I up & ditched the Banks Big Hoss module & ordered a TW. Can someone like Tony or Jody reburn chips? Is it possible?

Contact him to find out for sure, but I have heard that he only re-burns TS chips.

Nice! Those are the same exact settings I have! Do you have an ITP Overboost Annihilator? If not, you'll need one!

I am assuming I will need one? I dont want to beat the crap out of my truck because I wont have the thousands to fix it... The ses light has blinked a few times over the first position on my bully dog, but I really dont use the extra settings with the fear of a horrible explosion of the engine or transmission.....

As far as your transmission exploding, the TW has trans settings that won't harm your slushbox. Getting the ITP is optimal when getting any type of chip/programmer. Most of them have @ least one setting that pushes boost far beyond the MAP sensor's liking. What the ITP does is regulate a large amount of boost into a small amount of boost before it reaches your MAP sensor. This 'tricks' the MAP sensor into thinking you're only getting 22psi/boost, preventing it from sending a signal to your ECU to defuel. With street & extreme, I can easily reach 30psi. On better days, I've gotten 33psi in 'X'! It's 50% TW's awesome tunes, & 50% ITP Overboost Annihilator keeping the MAP sensor from being a 'narc'!

Now that right there is funny!!!!! I need the little head rolling around here!!
TW as well as DP and any quality tuner will adjust shift patterns and line pressures with their tunes, but this in no way is a guranttee that your slushbox can handle the extra power!! As I have said over and over again, There are No Crystal Balls!!!! If you have a tuned VB you need to tell the tuner this because they will leave off many of the trans variables. There are two ways to tweak the stock trans, electronically and mechanically, but in the end there is no gurantee your trans is going to last 150K, or 15 K or 15 miles for that matter. Just as there's no guranttee how long a stock trans will last. If you take advantage of the extra ponies at every stop light I promise you your trans will give up the ghost soon. The 4R100 is the weak link in our powertrain.
