Waiting is messed up for me too.

It's like being a kid near Christmas, but knowing you can't open the present.

Keep us up-to-date on the PHP and how much it wakes up your Excursion!!!

What 6 tunes did you go with? Do you have a tuner now? I am really wanting to order one but I already have a superchip. Let us know what you think of it.

Well it won't be coming in a big brown truck. They ship USPS Priority.

Took me about 3 weeks to get it though cause they have a big back log.

Who knew this little thing could make someone smile so much.

Yeah I saw that on my invoice yesterday, I though I read on the PHP forum they used UPS but oh well Looks like mine will be shipping next friday, man that's forever away.

As far as the tunes go I went with 1: stock 2: smoke 3: whisper 4: 80DD 5: 100perf 6: 120race

My hopes are to use the 80 DD most of the time, but possibly step up depending on in town drivability (I've heard some struggle with the touchy throttle when trying to granny along).

93Stang, I haven't had tunes on a diesel yet so I'm looking forward to it. I debated for a while getting one anyway but when I read on here that PHP was having a sale I just had to go ahead and go for it. Now how long with my original 194k mile 4R100 last is the question.

On a side note got any pictures of that Stang? I have an 89 myself.

I think they use whichever shipper is cheaper. They used UPS (Both times) with my chip.

I have been wanting to order the PHP for awhile, hopefully soon!

The purple 93 I built for my wife, 347 with a S-trim just over 500hp. Mine is a 92 with a 408 and a bit of N2O.

Those are sweet. Mines nothing special just an 89 GT I freshend up with new carpet, paint and then swapped out the AOD for a T5.

I was already considering the Phoenix when they were at the higher price and I would have had to pay for each additional tune so why not go ahead and spring for it with the new lowered price. I would have been kicking my own arse if the price would have went back up.

I have had my 7.3 EX since 2000 and always wondered about longivety with chips. Is there anyone out there who chipped and then kept their machine another 50 - 100K miles without issues?
