Very happy with the Dp tuner!

Recently had my computer and IDM take a big dump due to water damage in my 2K excursion, so I said what the hey and had a DP chip installed with the 80econ, drivethrough, 80tow and stock. All I can say is What a difference!! I am very happy with the upgrade!! Ive tried out all tunes and they work great. I have been running biodiesel (veggie oil) for approx two years now and with my mods I consistantly get 17 city and 21 highway. I have the usual mods with sythetic front and rear diff fluid. Ex has 137K on it. Thanks Dp!!

It is an awesome difference.... install a John Wood Valve Body and it's as big a difference in tranny as the tuner was to motor !!

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

Yea valve body and then get the 120 tune and you won't be able to wipe the smile off your face while your getting even better MPG

Guys I was able to meet Jody at a event in TN last year.Super great guy wound up buying a DP right there on the spot.I have had very good luck with it.

The prob I do have is trying to get this big grin off my face when I'm diving my truck.

Hi Diane!I hope to get to meet you at RRE this year.I'm from over on FTE.
