5.4 chip?

hey guys, doing a little research to help my buddy out. hes got an 03 5.4 superduty and he asked me what to go with for chips.. im not familiar with gas chips.. i know on diesels its custom or nothing basically, but i don't think its anywhere close on the gas models.

anybody have any insight on which chips are decent, and just basic tips on them.. hes obviously looking for performance, and MPG is a plus if at all possible.

maybe a reference for a 5.4 specific forum? im not sure of any specific sites for them.


thanks guys

There arent any real gains from chipping a gasser. Programming alone all you will get is a 15 hp gain max. Maybe a half mile per gallon fuel economy increase

LOL, now you know better than to ask diesel guys about chip'n a gasser. but seriously a super charger and custom tuning is the only way to make a fifty four speak up.
