Question TS performance vs TW chip?

i was wondering if there is much of a power difference between the TS chip and getting a custom TW chip? Right now i have an Edge programmer and EZ edge chip stacked, will either of these chips feel much stronger than my current setup?

I'll let ya know in two days, I sent in my TS chip to TW for custom burns, the canned tunes on TS sucked IMO, I didn't like the trans. shifting, and it idle ungodly high...

There is a BIG difference. I had a TS chip and it shifted the trans like crap so I sold it and got a TW and it shifted the trans great and I felt a good amount more power

i'm glad i got the heavy-tow setting on my tw, because i was hauling over 13 tons and it felt easier than before the tw, except my tranny rose to 230 degrees at one point, a little scary

UPDATE: Thought I'd give a little update on the TW chip, all I can say is Wow...this chip is amazing. You can't even compare this to the TS, its a whole different beast. I mean the power is more useable, not sloppy like on the TS, the shifting patterns are smooth, it idles perfect, I got no more CEL's. The power is crazy on Extreme, I did a 30+ ft peel out just from a start, and my EGT's aren't bad at all, they stay pretty low, even on extreme and smoke settings unless I lay down the hammer. I now see 30+ psi of boost, but I know better than to keep it up that high or i'll be getting a new turbo haha. Anyways the chip is awesome deff. recommended over anyother chip out there.
