Well the verdict is in, we were able to compare different chips on one of our 97 4WD powerstrokes. We went with the US gear, here is the difference
Stock 2000rpm 153hp at wheel
Stock 2500rpm 166hp at wheel
Stock 3000rpm 174hp at wheel
Stock tourque at 2000rpm was 395lbs tourque

US GEAR CHIP
US 2000rpm 232hp at wheel
US 2500rpm 239 at wheel
US 3000rpm 241 at wheel
US tourque at 2000rpm was 602.9 increase of 218 lbs tourque way beyond the figures that we thought.

Shifting pattern is almost perfect solid shifts.
We did some 0 to 60mph times on dyno stock and will compare over winter the difference.

Hey Kirby the fan is next its 40h/p more and more tourque they run $400.00 or so it will work good with the Banks full system 4.5 exhaust. I would like to get the Banks turbine housing they spin 30%plus faster than the stockers to go alot quicker.

Yes! The friend I was talking about in the above post said he burned rubber the first time he punched it, mine will do that also. Look at the results Brian posted, quite an improvement.

As you have a 1996 you have not much to worry on warrenty and if you fear that it will avoid your drivetrain warrenty you can take chip out. The process took myself a little over an hour and you must follow directions especially the ones on cleaning off the terminals for chip. U.S Gear is $495.00, Performance Ford chip $380.00, Hyper Max chip $465.00 and B.D chip $475.00 and U.S gear had best shifting and performance. The power is night and day and no more sloppy shifts its now like the old muscle cars with shift kits in them. The more solid and direct your shifts are the longer your transmission will last and thats from Ford, GM and too local performance shops that build NHRA Pro-Stock cars and trucks and Top Fuel Dragsters so I will listen and belive them on there opinion.

LOL its not hard but I do all my work myself, I suggest getting a friend to help you. The address is http://www.usgear.com and why I talked about transmissions are the Ford AOED automatic shifts like crap from factory and this chip makes it feel like a real transmission should. If you were to have someone install it it will probly be 2hours max. Be free to email me directly on any info just click on red house below and it will take you right to me. IT WILL BE WORTH THE COST!!!
