There is nothing wrong with the SCT on a 7.3, you just loose the shift on the fly ability and only get three tunes. Go with a 6 pos chip, good tunes, shift on the fly, clean install...

Check out the "Vendors" link top, middle of the page. Plenty of options there, I personally use DP Tuner. Check 'em out.

I ran a hypertech program in my 01 PSD. I recently installed a DP-Tuner F-5 chip w/ shift on the fly , The Chip far out performs the programmer in my case.
