chips/tuners question

I have an early 99 f350 diesel, and I was wondering what would be the best or most reasonable tuner to get. I already have a 5" exhaust and the afe intake, I just want to be able to pull my 40ft enclosed gooseneck trailer better. thanks

Keep in mind some tuners dont tune the transmission. Do you have an automatic?

Yes i have an automatic but its not stock by any means, I just spent about five thousand in it with the best you can buy stuff so, i dont think i need any special tuning for it but since im fairly new to this i could be wrong

you will have to get a custom tuned chip so that it can be tuned to your transmission.... also your going to need gauges as well...

we offer a TW chip/ gauge combo if your interested

talk to raul, he is the man to talk too about your situation
only way you need to go is w/ a custom tuned chip that tunes to your motor + tranny, such as a Tony Wildman chip

I have all the gauges that are needed, So where do you recommend me getting a chip that is tuned for my transmission. I been readin up on the diesel innovations tuners and seems like they are a great tuner. I live in arizona, since it sounds like im going to have to have my truck tuned for the tranny.

What year is your truck? If its a 7.3 you want a TW or DP. If 6.0 get SCT thru innovative probably. These are opinions.

I have run several tuners and now have a Power Hungry Performance chip. I just pulled our 33 ft 5th wheel for the first time this week with the chip. Temps were great and no surge either. Bill at PHP was great to work with. Definitley talk with them abouttheir options for you.

My truck is an early 99 f350 with the 7.3 diesel, I orginally had a bullydog 4position chip which really messed my truck all up(when cruise was on the truck surged really bad, trans shifted early then late, sometims not at all) so i tore it out and the trucks runs like it did when it was new but now i just want to do it right so i will be satified when it comes to towing my many trailers. I haul stuff all the time. so please let me know what i can do to get my ford towing strong.
