Re: Best Power Chip for 2001 7.3 turbo diesel
Ditto what Paul says. I haul a ton or so more than you, and find that the DP-tuner 60 hp tow setting works fine. Hauling 8k or so up a pass can push you close enough to the 1250 egt limit that you really should have the pyrometer installed. As Paul notes, the firmer shifts from a modified tranny throttle body [I have and like the FTVB, but I'm sure the BTS is great, too], which DP-tuner can 'tune' for, are a nice improvement when towing 3 or more tons. I also have, and like, the 80 econ setting on my DP-tuner chip. Its what I run when not towing, though I'm careful to have a light foot on the go-petal in that setting when the roads are wet. It may give a slight improvement in highway mileage, if you can resist the temptation to punch it ...
