Best tuner for e99 pcm

I can't find a later model pcm that I can afford right now and I'm not really looking to make any crazy power in the future, so looking for tunes for the e99 computer .

Thanks

I have a e99 f350 and have been doing research on the PCM to fix shifting problems I am looking at dp. I have a hypertech programmer but it won't let me use it on my truck

Php also does e99 tunes. But I would go through a dealer instead. Bill is very busy with lots of other stuff that customer service gets neglected at times. I believe Wild man does e99 also.

Fyi, you can buy an unflashed Dpc-402 pcm from autozone for half of anyone else. Thats what I did so I could get PMT1 programming from Gearhead.

Yea I just got my truck recently and having a weird problem the trans shifts great through all the gears when it gets to overdrive it shifts fine then it's like the torque coverter locks or unlocks and the rpms jump up a couple hundred all my research points to the PCM programming I changed the filter and fluid and it looked great it has to be the PCM I'm going to pull it Tomorow to see what code it is. I was shocked to see PCM prices I just want a update I wonder how much the dealer cost to reflash with updates

With DP Jody will tell you that he has mastered the E99 programming and there is no reason to "upgrade" tot he newer PCM. I would tend to agree with him based on my experience. I need to get off my *** and sent it down to get reburned for my DAC3 PCM now. Really missing that high idle tune

Is this what your having happen? (23 seconds is the first blip there is 4 or 5 more afterwards)

Turned out it had nothing to do with the tunes, just a failing torque convertor.

Good lol...

If you get somebody with an AE you can check the input vs output speed of your transmission, and torque convertor slip. That's how I figured out my issue.

$50 to flash a pcm at a dealer. But if you get a TS style chip you dont need to flash it. Just plug in your chip and it takes over anyway. E99 pcm iirc is a DPC-422. Most tuners use the DPC-402 to run the PMT1, or 2 software files due to better transmission shifting.

Jody may have a very good reputation, but if you dont like his tunes you are stuck with the chip. You cannot send it to someone else for reburns.

Here's lots of info.

I think I will go to the dealer Friday and see about having the PCM updated I have a hypertech 3 programmer I had for years it has one setting and firmer shifts it does just enough to where I didn't feel like it was tearing my last truck up but when I tried to install it came up with calibration not found error 6D so I checked hypertech and it says the factory program is not recognized so I am going to try the dealer then use my programmer and hope it solves my problems
