Check out DP-tuner.com before you buy anything.

IMHO, there is no equal when it comes to the quality of the product, the service, and the options.

TW, DP, or PHP.


Those are your choices, now pick one. LOL

I don't have any, but those are the only 3 worth having on a 7.3, and everyone will chime in for which one that they use.

2001 excursion 4x4, 4" Magnaflow SS exhaust, AEM Brute Force intake, 05 conversion, 6k HID's, after market tail lights, and thats it for now. More to come..

I'd say to at least look at every site. Tony Wildman, DP-tuner, and php. The DP gives you a ton of options. And his 80econo tune gave me a no bull 2 MPG increase at freeway speeds of about 80mph.
