Chip to use with GTP38R?

Hey guys.

Recently the stock turbo on my 02 F350 nuked itself, and in the search for an upgrade I ended up going with the GTP38R kit (Power Stroke Upgrade).

I was just wondering what chip/programmer I could use to get the most out of this setup?

Also.. I was told by the dealer that my truck may have been chipped already, is there any way to see if they were telling the truth or not?

Thanks in advance.

My opinion is DP Tuner is the best out there. I've tried most...his stuff is the most bang for the buck.

Check out Bill at PHP or Tony at Total Diesel Performance also. Being that you have pmr's, I wouldn't push that motor over 400hp.

powder metal rod

They are weaker than forged rods. Go too far over 400hp, and you'll have a nice new window in the side of that block. 94.5-late 2000 builds and a few 01's had forged rods. Anything later had pmr's.

Ah, ok then. And after some research looks like a DP-Tuner is what I'm looking for and in my price range. This friggin turbo set me back a pretty penny :X
