New to the 7.3's

Hey ya'll, I'm coming from a 12valve cummins and don't know much about these chips/tuners. Was wondering if you could stack a chip and a tuner on these trucks? If so what is the best stack for achieving around 400-450hp? Is this able to do so with keeping a stock turbo/head?

The truck is a 2001 and I will be upgrading the clutch. Are southbends as good on psd as they are on cummins?

Stacking does nothing on these trucks. To get 450 hp you are gonna need a lot more than just a chip. You'll need injectors at the minimum. Stock turbo probably wont last long at that power level. Heads will be ok though. I have heard south bend is an awesome clutch for these trucks.

Your also going to need forged rods unless your lucky enough to be one of the few 01's with forged rods. PMR's are only good for 400 hp

So there is no difference between a tuner and a chip on these trucks? Also what would be the best chip for power then?

you can not stack chips and a tuner...

just go with a custom tuned chip like a TW. DP or php....

that will only get you to around 320hp... anything above that and your going to need larger injectors, turbo, fuel system ect...

to get into the 450hp your looking at around 5k +/-

hope that helps
