I've had several differnt companies chips. For power Tony Wildman's tunes rock on:

All the custom tuners are good and shifting is great with any of them.

It shows you laready have Elite tunes on your rig? Wanting to change?

I prefer DP Tuner. Read some threads and I believe you will find a majority.

I run the high power tune all the time. If I`m really putting my foot in it the tranny shift good. If I try to drive normal the tranny shift real slugish. Also If I get my foot in real hard , my chech engine light always comes on. But when i put the sct on to read a code it says there is none.

I don't know why your SCT won't read the code but you are getting either an overboost code or an ICP out of range (low) code. You need an ITP overboost annihilator and/or big oil to keep the CEL off.

BTW, I have never had a chip from Tadd. CSIPSD (Joe) has and he says Tadd's stuff is very good.

Call and talk to Tadd, he can change the shift paramiters to suit what you want better. Your SES light is a overboost or a ICP code, they will all do that. Get a overboost regulator from ITP.

You have about the only guy that burns 7.3 stuff on the X cal anymore. I dont think Jody does it anymore?
