TW chip guys - chime in please!

I just installed my chip today - the positions are econo, daily, tow, street, extreme, and smoke. I have read all of the reviews & comments on this chip, thats why I chose to go with Tony, but I am sad to say that I am a little disappointed with the performance gains? My main complaint is, it doesn't matter which tune I am on, this thing wont spin the tires unless I ride the brakes! Granted I have 35" tires with stock gearing, but I think quite a few of you have the same size tire & are always talking about lighting them up at will?
Is there something else wrong with my truck? I do have a JW valve body that I will be installing tomorrow, but I don't think that it will help that much.
Now the positives, I also installed my single 6" miter today, and that, along with the smoke tune looks cool as $hit!
I did manage to get up to about 34 lbs. of boost in the extreme setting, but ended up blowing the rubber boot off of the intake tube, and that makes me nervous with my stock turbo (it was cool as hell though)
The truck definently has alot more ***, just not as much as I would have hoped for - I hear these kill stories all the time about smoking tuner cars, and I don't know if my truck is slower than it should be, or if the tuner cars in my area are fast as hell, but I wouldn't even think about messing with these guys! I'd be looking like a chump a$$ hillbilly with a loud a$$ truck thats slower than VW Rabbit - HELP a brotha out, what should I do?

I have 01 EX and I can't spin mine without the brakes... I do have the extra weight of the ex and fuel, plus i got about 300lbs of extra equipment in the back.

I thought I would be able to spin my tires too but I'm still happy with my chip

Do you have any idea's?
As long as I got you here, do I have to have my chip reburned for the valve body?

I have thought about that, but I don't want to get too serous (yet), this is my daily driver / company truck, and it HAS to be reliable.

I hear ya, a BB turbo, stage 2's, and water meth, are definently on my list, but before all that, I want to get some forged rods, head studs, and a BTS tranny & TC. Then I'll feel much better about putting some power to her!

So - if you are still around Tony, what about the reburn, is it required with the VB?
