DP Tuner all the way......but I have heard they are all good. I personally had a TS chip and it is nothing compared to the DP tuner.

It's all preference........All I can say is Dp Tuner will speak for it's self......try it and find out. With the TS chip I felt the difference but Dp Tuner chip it was night and day. Thats all if you like TS you should post you like it and give the guy your info. I'm not here to argue with you who is the best.

Its all good....I might have takin you the wrong way...sorry. DP Tuner does Rock....but that is my opinion......you may like what you have better. DP Tuner does have way more options and very nice products.

Did you get more throttle response in each setting as compared to your ts chip.and was each one a specific tune for the truck or off the shelf tunes ?

I did have live tuning done......but the off the shelf tunes that I had were very good also from DP Tuner.

TS and DP are both good chips, but most of it comes down to personal preferences. I've had a chance to compare both (in a manner of speaking) out here in Colorado.

A friend of mine has an 01 PSD and for several years ran a TS chip. I've always run a DP-Tuner, and we had a chance to ride in each other's trucks. The biggest complaint he had was the shifting strategy of the TS chip was rougher than what he wanted. My biggest complaint at the time with the DP-Tuner was the shift strategy was causing my engine to lug at high altitudes. However, I did get that changed and the shifting is now dead on where I want it.

We also drag raced at Bandimere. Even with nothing but a chip/intake/exhaust, my truck always ran faster E/T's and MPH. To add to this, my truck has always had a lift and tires, my friend's truck runs stock suspension and stock sized tires. So even with my disadvantage at the track, my truck ran faster with the DP than his did with the TS.

Afterwards, he switched to a DP-Tuner chip and raced again at Bandimere. This time he ran quicker E/T's with faster trap speeds. The chip was the only change he made. He then went to a live tuning session with Jody, and dropped his times even more.

So after that experience, it seems that yes there is a bit of a difference in tuning between the two. Just to note, there are plenty of people out there who are happy with the TS tunes. So again, it's all about personal preference.

If you get a TS get one custom tuned from any of the tuners out there. Tony Wildman, Power Hungry Performance, & Swamps are just one of the MANY that can do it. As long as you're getting custom tunes you'll be happy with either chip.

i bought my truck with the ts installed. i've looked on ts website but cant find the chip i have. Its the 5 or 6 bank one. Not sure, and i dont know much about live tunnig and all that. Is that the same as custom tunes, could i get that on my ts? Like on the dp site you can choose what you want..ex 140 aggrassive - lope idle - warm up. Can you do this with a ts? thanks

Yes, you can send off your TS chip and get it updated with custom tunes. You can also have it live tuned, but that involves you setting up an appointment with a tuner in person. DP cannot re-tune your TS chip. It's my understanding that they only have the equipment to flash the chips they use.
I think Diesel Performance Plus is one of the supporting vendors that can re-tune your TS. There may be others, they were just on the top of my head.

I would say do it once and get DP only because you can get a chip that you can have up to 16 tunes at a touch of a button, and if you get the new chip you will never have to send it away for a new tune.
