Looking for a new tuner

so right now my truck has a custom tuned DP tuner and Im looking to possibly change it up and run something different. My truck is a 6 speed with 160cc single shots so its a little laggy and I get alot of smoke and heat. all my mods are in my sig

Anyone have any suggestons? was possibly looking at no limit tuning but havent seen a ton of reviews but the ones I have seen are all pretty good

15 F350 CCLB 6.7 Many mods to come.....
01 F350 CCLB 7.3 6 Speed SOLD

No limit/dynoproven will never get any of my business, they work with DP.

Get the Hydra Hucorey sells it for 375 like most other dealers, but he has Power-struck tunes which are quickly becoming one of the most reccomended tuners

Op, I've got 2 Hydra's left if you interested. I've had a few TS chips, to be unbiased as possible it really is the best chip on the market for the 7.3. I also carry Powerstruck Tuning.

The TS will get you by OK if you never plan on doing any mods. Once you start mods then your truck will be down since you have to send you chip out for reburns. So, not only do you have to wait for snail mail, $10-20 shipping fees, hoping the chip took the burn. I've had to send my old TS chips in multiple times for tuners burning incorrectly or the chip not taking the tune. So you end up with more shipping fees. So I eventually bought 2 TS chips, but that was before the Hydra came out.

The Hydra. Well, its $75 more for PHP's custom basic tuning, but when you start the mods, just call your tuner and they email them. You upload them yourself. Very easy to do.

The hydra installs once, change tuning when ever, the ts has to be removed and sent off for a reburn, I've had great luck with ts chips, and I get them with tuning already on them for what ever I've done, so I just install them and run them, the hydra would be a great investment tho

I just had the turbo off yesterday to install new up pipes and a few other things and on my test drive after my truck hit 31 lbs of boost so I'm guessing no leaks right?
