Looking for a Chip

Okay guys, you know what kind of truck I have. Me and Dad got to talking tonight at dinner. We have decided to get a chip for the 250 so we can increase some mpg. What would you suggest for the best chip for the best price to raise MPGs?

You should get a custom chip from either Jody and Diane Tipton at DP Tuner or Tony Wildman(total diesel performance). Without a doubt they are both the best tuners for the 7.3l

Here's Jody and Diane's site.

DP-Tuner



Raul sells tony's chips. Here is his site.



Stealth Automotive Inc




Or here is Tony's site.

Jonathon or John Although technically i have a list of nicknames the length of I-95, so call me what ya like

may have to do a little exhaust work, and add a couple of gauges, these are necessary if you don't want to hurt anything

Definitely need gauges. A EGT gauge at the very minimum.

Runing a chip or programmer without them is a VERY VERY bad idea.

Throw you a DIY Tymar style intake on there too. Cheap probably 60 bucks tops.

On the DP site, which one would be a good tune for smoke?

Okay I might go with some gauges to run down the side rail of the cab.
