i would think 95 and 97 would be the same chip anyway?

A chip programmed for an OBS will NOT work on a superduty and vice versa.

The chip can be reprogrammed to work for the superduty though.

just so you know, stacking doesn't do anything on Fords, just save your money and get a custom tuned chip, such as a TW, DPtuner, php....they will out perform any canned tune chip
