DP F5 or F6 opinions from experienced users
i've finally decided to go ahead and get my gauges and chip. ill be going with DP. ive emailed jody twice last week and he has got back with me right away with some good info.
i told him i dont want to build a hot-rod truck but ofcourse i want to feel a little bit of everything you guys talk about when u say these 7.3's wake right up with a good tune. i do want to improve economy and i talked with him about that. i also told him i would be towing my 9,000lb boat on occasion...but not all the time. (its for sale)
he suggested this:
- 60hp econo & 80hp econo tunes for the city and highway
- 60hp tow tune
couple of questions for u experienced guys:
- will i be able to have a little fun with the 80hp econo tune? or if i even think i want to have fun do i need to get atleast the 100hp performance tune?
- ultimately...would it be better to load up an F5 chip with tunes since it is $200.00 cheaper - or, with the F6 being available, is that pretty much the new and smart way to go so you can have ultimate control???
honestly, i dont want to hurt the trans with too much power by beating it and i want this motor to keep on going strong like it is...so, im trying to be conservative.
ive also read on here where the DP 80hp tune (i think) actually puts more to the ground than the superchips race setting...anyways, this is why im asking u guys.
specs are in the sig...(unknown if the trans has been rebuilt. i just guess that it has cuz it has pulled a fith and pushed snow prior to me buying it)
