I also have modified PHP tunes from yrs ago and access to the current modified library, current PHP tunes are more mellow. My beans and powerstruck tunes are also from years ago; where my 1023, SDK, GH tunes are recent.

If you are sticking with stock injectors, just get a hydra and run the PHP tunes from the library
Thanks for the advice, that's what I needed to know. Also, thanks to White Buffalo 7.3, what he said about the street tune not smoking was a help as well. I've often wondered if anyone made a decent tune that didn't plume smoke like a freight train. I'm not a tree hugger, but the soot is a pain to clean off the truck and trailer, and I'm sure the horses didn't appreciate it.

To the OP; my apologies to you, I didn't mean to hijack your thread, however, I thought my questions may help you as well.

The high performance F150's are a lot of fun to drive. I ended up with a Raptor by default. I ordered it for my wife as she always wanted one. She had Ovarian Cancer and unfortunately died four days after it came in. (July 2) She never got to ride in it, but she sure did smile when she saw it.
I've had two 6.7s. They were both stock and were nice trucks. My nephew has a deleted 2014 6.7 with 175,000 trouble free miles on it. (deleted at 10,000 miles) I don't think you'll go wrong with one of them.

Neither, I bought it because the 7.3 is an anvil that one can pound on all day long and it makes no difference to it. I've owned each edition of the Powerstroke engines, and have found that the 7.3, while antiquated by todays standards is just easy to live with. My 2017 6.7 King Ranch had every bell and whistle available, but the old girl still makes me smile every time I start her.
I should add that I found a 2001 Platinum Edition in mint condition with 95,000 miles. I sold the white truck in my Avatar.

This is the best on the market for the 7.3L platform, especially if you want to go with larger injectors. I have plenty on the shelf

What size of injectors? Mainly so I have an idea of what else to recommend. You dont need up upgrade your whole fuel system if you stay with 160/30 or smaller injectors. 180cc it is hit or miss that a factory pump will supply enough fuel for them. Some dont have issues, others cant keep up.

White_Buffalo7.3 PHP library is fantastic. I ran PHP tunes before i got my injectors. I absolutely love those tunes. Shifting was IMO great for towing, Street tune didn't smoke, and the race tune was all out, all while being safe for my PMR's.
