Sorry, but I'm new to the whole "chip" thing

I bought a 99 f-250 last week with a chip in it, I have no idea which brand it is. It definitely works, but I don't like the way it draws out the shift into second gear (truck is auto) the tranny is somewhat new (40,000 miles)
My question to you guys is, will I be able to tell which brand it is, when I get it out? From what I've read in older posts, I'm ASSUMING my truck will run with out it.
I'm sorry to sound stupid, this is my first chip, but not my first 7.3. Any help would be great.
Thanks

The truck will still run without it.
Pretty good chance it will be a TS style chip, which you can then send to Hucorey to have custom tunes loaded onto.

Thanks for such a quick response, I'm not sure when I'll even get a chance to pull the PCM, my stupid job keeps getting in the way of the fun stuff:-)

IF you pull the chip, make sure your keys are in your pocket, NO WHERE NEAR the ignition.

As was said above, more then likely its a TS chip, beyond that, you cant tell what tunes are on it, so send it somewhere and get it retuned.

Why what?

If the keys are in the ignition when you remove the chip, 9 times out of 10 the PCM will be fried.

As to the chip, a TS chip is a TS chip, it can be tuned by 20+ tuners out there, and it is very difficult if not imposable to read whats on it after its been burned. Not to say it can not be reburned but.

Unless you know what tunes are in which position it won't be near as useful as knowing where they are on your switch. Do you have a knob mounted somewhere to switch between tunes? That's what they mean by a ts style chip. If not your PCM may be flashed or you may have a tune loaded from a programmer if there is no visible chip on the PCM or switch in view.
