TS 6pos Chip

Does anyone have any tips or pointers on the best/easiest way to install one of these (TS 6pos Chip.) I have a 2000 f-250 psd straight drive, 4x4. A little help before I tear into my kick panel would be nice. Thanks to everyone for the help.

The main thing is to clean the plug that plugs into your computer very well, you dont want to have to take it back out just to clean it if it does not work the first time. Other than that this is a pretty simple install, just take your time and have fun!!

Exclamation

Is it very hard to get your computer out. Do you have to take it out?

Yes the computer must come out. This is because the port where the chip plugs in is faced at the fire wall while the computer is installed. But dont worry, the computer is not hard to get out. I believe I installed mine in about 45 minutes. The only thing is getting to where the wiring harness plugs through the fire wall into the back of the computer. All this takes is a little flexability but that's all. Follow the directions that are privided by TS and it will be a breeze

I did mine without pulling the computer. The plug that the chip plugs into is by the parking brake. I just took out the 2 screws holding the black plastic case(holding the computer) and worked it out of the way. All with the computer still in the truck. And of course cutting a hole in the plastic case and cleaning the circuit board.

Talking Yeee Haw

:burnout


I just got that new TS 6pos Chip installed. Have not driven it yet but cranked it and let it run to make sure no warning lights or anything came on. Turned it to 140 and gave it alittle fuel and out came the BLACK SMOKE. This will be fun. And any of you guys who want the smoke...talk to Nate. He can fix you up. Thx Nate.
