I ate a whole packet in an F250 once. The result -I wasn't hungry any more, but it didn't seem to have much effect on fuel consumption.

Sorry couldn't resist!

What chips are available for an F250 and what are you trying to achieve?

Log would tell us that if one were to eat too many packets though one's weight would go up and hence negatively affect fuel economy. That's done didn't have a Hiclone or 2 in their F250.

P.S. how much more power and torque does one want from a F250?

Know of a few round where I live with "Superchip???" programmable. Owners are VERY happy. Performance improvement was massive. Hard to believe this engine was derated so far for production vehicles

Don't know about chipping the beasts, but yesterday there was one beside me towing a tandem trailer full of the usual builder's gear. At the lights I may as well have been in reverse. Then again the Fender's not exactly a sports car. Only consolation is the amount of oil he musta burnt to go that fast. ... cheez .. ;-))

Cheers

With our F250s my 4cyl Rodeo can't outrun them. Even if the F250 is fully loaded and towing!

Not sure if that is because my Rodeo is gutless or an F250 is gutlots LOL

Hi Marty here in WA, a mate of mine has 2 of these f250's he uses them on the farm for pulling a boom spray, and the other for a tool truck. the one he pulls a boom with he got chipped (he rekons 100+ mor gee gees) he rekons the difference is outstanding, smoother, and wild performance on gravel roads (he hasnt fully grown up yet). but intrestingly he rekons if any thing under normal driving conditions (what ever they are effie owners) he has BETTER fuel ec.

I can get you his phone number if you like.

hope it helped a bit,

I think that U will find that in the US the 7.3 is superseded by the 6l powerstroke with better power & economy than the 7.3 but we pay heaps & get the old stock.
