    Ok I got my new to me 1999 F-350 4x4 dump truck finally. It has the 7.3 turbo with 4.10 gears so the mpg suck. Its between 9 to 11 mpg. :realmad: Plus with my enclosed trailer acting like a wind sock isn't helping. So I want to save some $$$ payup in fuel.

    Ok you got me. I really just want to smoke some rice burners with my coal burner. :rolleyes: :D Nothing is better then the look of the guy's face driving a souped up Honda civic getting beaten by a dump truck towing a trailer. LOL

    So what programmer is the best:
    superchip chip and micro tuner
    Bully dog
    Others I missed ???

    What do you run?
    Which give the best bang for the buck?
    Which gives the best performance with out damaging the motor?

    My buddy has the Edge Juice/Attitude set-up. He seems to like it, however I can give you no first hand experience...

    I first ran the Hypertech PP III in my 99 it gave it a pretty good power increase about 50HP to the rear wheels, but then I wanted more and got a chip that would put 75HP to the rear wheels from TS Performance. A 75 HP chip is the very biggest that you want to go without running any other gauges (exhaust temp, engine temp, ect). Some people will say not to even run a chip without gauges, but as long as the person drives with their head removed from their a$$, it is fine. I now have a TS 4 position chip in my 99, and a 4 pos. chip in my 03 that was custom burned for the different injectors, intake, propane, exhaust, and turbo that I am running. Basically you can go as big, or as small as you want.

    If you are looking for just a little better power and mileage increase, look at the Hypertech or Superchips tuners. Also you can got the TheDieselStop.com for more info.
