DP Tuner is AWESOME!!!!!!

I received my DP Tuner F-5 in the mail today, and wasted no time installing it. Then it was test drive time, Holy Crap, that chip really woke my truck up. I have the 60 tow, 80 econ, 120 race, and 140 aggressive. I have ridden in some fast trucks including chipped 6.0's, but my 7.3 can now easily hang with them if not beat them. This chip made my truck a monster, it is FREAKING FAST. I do have 3 complaints:
1. I wasted a quarter tanks of fuel today.
2. I am going to need new tires SOON.
3. This truck is going to get me a ticket or a warning.
I let my buddy, who sold me the truck drive it with the chip on the 140 smoke, He said he wished he had kept the 7.3 instead of buying an 05 Dodge. Sorry the post is so long, but I had to let everyone know how AWESOME the F-5 for DP Tuner is. :smoke :Thumbup:

You've got to love Jody's tunes. When I installed my chip I could'nt believe the difference. I agree with you, my fuel milage sucks because I can't keep my foot out of it.

Glad to hear you're happy with it. Once I get gauges/intake/exhaust done, I'm going to be getting either Jody or Tony's tunes...:

I'm a Ford guy and have been since birth, but I would have a very hard time turning down an 05 CR Cummins/Dodge for the 7.3. I like the ease of getting power out of the Common Rail's, and I LOVE the sound of a 5 inch straight piped Cummins. It would be a tough call...
