Head to head my truck with a DP-Tuner has always beaten TS chipped trucks. DP-Tuner is awesome. Just read all the posts in this forum about it. There's a ton of DP fans for a reason.

They are the same chip, only difference is the tuning files on it.

I think you've read enough post's on this chips and tuners board to get a good idea of what's coming.

The real reason is because TS hasn't been working at making new programing for the 7.3's in the last couple years. Or so i've heard anyway. The TS programming isn't bad, that's for sure, but it does sound like Jody has been continually improving his 7.3 programs.

Actually they are not the same chip. We use a different manufacture for the F5.

if i put a ts 6 position chip in my truck and gave the occasional smoke show but ran her nice and easy most of the time would it tear up my auto tranny? or should i install a tranny cooler with it?

Ok, so i drove my buddies 97 duellie and he has the edge evolution. I was actually very impressed with the way the truck drives. It was only on the medium setting and it felt good. But what i liked most about it was the drivability. Since this is my daily driver, i want a chip that is good for part throttle cruising too. Are the dp chips good at part throttle too?
