Possibly thinking DP tuner.

After reading up on all the threads, I think I'm going to buy a dp tuner. I'm just curious as to what suggestions you would have for me. I have a 4" MBRP exhaust no muffler, boost, pyro and trans temp gauges on my truck.

Currently I'm running a superchips 1705 tuner but I'm not impressed by it. So I think I'm going to get a 60 tow, 80 econo and 100hp perf. setting along with stock. I pull some bigger loads on a flatbed from time to time, but mostly I run empty. Any suggestions, any problem with surge? Thanks.

2001 F-250 7.3L Ext. Cab, SB 4X4, MBRP 4in, DIY intake, autometer pillar gauges, DP F5 tuner (40,80 and 120), ride-rite air springs, 08 Diff. cover.

Has anyone went from a superchips programmer to any one of the multi position switches that can give some comparision. I am curious about this too. I have a friend that has a superchips and loves it on his 01 6spd.
