Best chip or programmer for 2001 7.3

I have been looking around and the vendors say the same thing that the new edge evolution is the best for this truck. Does anyone have anymore suggestions.

I haven’t used the edge so it might be the best, I like flip chips better but here is how I rank the programmers I have tried:

1. Predator (Kick a** power and best diagnostics including trend recording of sensor data)
2. Old superchips (1701 I believe)
3. New superchips (1705)
4. Distant 4th is the Hypertech III

I recommend Tony Wildman tunes.. I had the superchips 1805 it was OK but no comparison to the flip chip.. not to mention switching tunes on the fly is awesome

I went wildman and never looked back except to see how far the competition is behind me and the black cloud I'm rolling

and down the road if you get bigger injectors, bigger oil, bigger turbo etc... to really make it all work to its potential you will need to get a custom burned chip... and I would go with Tony cause he will reburn your chip for free if you get any upgrades that I talked about

Just want a starter chip with the most bang for the buck. Not planning on replacing exhaust and changing to a cold air intake right now,but want to have some extra power to play around with and maybe get a little better mileage on a tank of fuel. I know it all depends on how much you keep your foot in it.
