Default 96 powerstroke mods

ihave a 1996 powerstroke 250 7.3l and i want to do some upgrades to it as it is mostly a stock truck it has- straight pipe exhaust a chip and a 3 in lift with 33 in tires. and some other little things.

i want to upgrade the chip to a ts 6 position chip has anyone heard anything about this chip or does anyone know of a good chip for this truck that i can change settings on, and will give me some good hp and torque.
and i am also thinking about stacking it any one have any opinions on that?
thanks alot!!

and any other simple mods you know of.

the TS style is the best type of chip for the PSD. call up any of the fallowing swamps, wildman, PHP, beans, gearhead. find out which one you want to go with and run with it.

You can not stack on a PSD, just doesnt work that way...

Get some gauges, Pyro, boost and tranny temp...

A chip from a good tuner, Swamps, Gearhead, Power Hungry Performance, Tony Wildman....

A valve body for the tranny...

Just do a Tymar intake... better filter, cheaper and the same if not better flow!
