    For a while most everyone was using Jodi at DP Tuner. By the sound of things Matt at Gearhead has some good tunes for them also. I don't keep up on the 7.3's much but plenty of friends drive them so I still am kept in the loop some.

    I have the super chip in my 7.3.. it's not the most agressive out there but it's been on my truck for 6 years with no issues. I normally run around in high performance tow mode.

    I'd put a DP Tuner on her.

    You sell the 5.4 gas truck?

    Go with custom tunes from Matt at Gearhead Automotive, its a 6 pos ts chip with his own tunes on it. I got mine a year ago and it made a huge difference. Stay away from Banks, super chips, edge, etc. Gearheads chip will run ya about $475ish, but you get free lifetime reburns if you add a bigger turbo or injectors or other performance parts. They have a big list of tunes you can put on from high idle, heavy tow, race, extreme, valet mode, quite mode, econo. That would be the best thing for your 7.3

    All box tuners, nothing really tuned directly for your truck. They add more fuel and air and can cause problems that wouldn't have been created with custom tunes for your truck.

    I have a DP tuner and LOVE it best $$ i have ever spent its a totally different truck! Dont get any big name chips they are not really tuned directly for your truck and can end up F*^&% your truck up.
