Hey guys, First of all I know this isn't the best chip in the world but it is free so here goes. My dad bought this chip for his truck and doesn't use it anymore. It is is gold superchips chip, NOT the tuner. It came out of his early 99 F250 auto, I also have a early 99 f250 Auto only difference in the two trucks is that his is ext. cab and mine is crew. Anyhow I want to install it one mine. I wanted someone to verify that this was the correct way. Unhook the bats and turn the key on and off one time. plug chip into back of computer by emergency brake pedal. hook bats back up and ride. Is this correct?

Yea it was popular around here when the superduty's first came out here. My father in law has one in his truck and it will fly! I didn't know if anybody up here still had one or not.
:dunno:

You need to clean the terminals on the pcm before you install chip, but other than that it's correct.

So according to the DP directions I do NOT need to disconnect the batteries! only take the key out. I think I might just take them loose anyway just to be safe.

It may or may not. The old gold chips were single bank chips. Programmed for one PCM code specifically. If its not of the same family it may not work

well i got the ol chip installed and everything seems to be good to go with it. I had to do this in between calls at work (EMS), so I haven't really had a chance to drive it other than around the block at the station, but it seems to have more power. Will report back later, thanks for the help everyone.
