Chip questions

Greetings! I'd like to know what CSPers have to say about power chips. I've been reading up on DP, TS, PHP, Gearhead,Swamps, Beans, etc. and would like to hear your thoughts. I've got an EDGE evolution programmer which I'm using now. My non-towing mileage is better than without it, but I've been reading that I should get a chip instead. I don't have any internal mods on my truck (injectors/etc.). It's got almost 170K mile and I believe it still has the original stock transmission. I'm pulling an 11,000 fifth wheel in the summer through I70 and I80 Colorado/Wyoming and my fuel economy really sucks. If the tranny will hold out for a while, I'd like to bullet proof it some time late next summer. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I've seen good things about TW with his 7.3 tunes, I run his tunes on my 6.0 and I like em. Hopefully Pat or someone else will chime in.

Tw, Cale's, gear head (hit or miss depending on your preferences), elite (ones I had but others say they're not the best). If I'd do it again I'd do tw cause of his background/back story (Google Morgan Wildland for more on that).

I was just at that page. Thanks to all for the input. If I'm going to spend money, I can't think of a more worthy cause.
