HELP new guy pick programmer - please!
Hey there y'all!
I just bought my first diesel truck- a '07 F350 King Ranch FX4 SRW- and I'm considering putting a chip or programmer in it. Currently the truck is all stock except for a Ranch Hand front bumper. But I'm TOTALLY new to diesels and I've never had a chip an any of my vehicles. So, I need help picking the right one for me!
My #1 concern is improved fuel economy! I would love for it to have some more 'git up and go' but I figure all of the chips/programers will give me some more of that. I don't do a whole lot of heavy towing and I think tge truck can handle what I DO tow (16' flatbed & 25' stock trailer) the way it is- I live in South Texas and we don't have a lot of hills.
Can someone explain what "custom tunes" are and where you get them?
I'd like a programmer that would allow me to change from fuel economy to performance (for added passing ability) IF that's a possibility. But it's not a requirement.
Can I get some recommendations, both budget-conscious and 'moneys no object,' on what chip/programmer will give mr the BEST fuel economy along with the option to boost HP/torque?
