    Anyone got the super chip which gives you like 50 Xtra HP and 125 more ft. pounds of tq. ? They guy says you can light up the tires like a dragster with this chip...its only 500 dollars. Also I was looking into getting a lift kit for my 2001 f-350 diesel 2X4 all the kits in the mags are either for 4X4 and or are like 1,200 for my 4X2 im just trying to level the front end with the rear end so I can fit the largest tires I can on the rims which are 16 inch rite now. Anyone know who has a leveling and or lift kit for my truck for under 600 bucks . ? The tires I have rite now are 265/75/16 I was looking into getting 285/75/16 ( Thornbirds) very nobby...looks good Im not sure how big of tires I can fit under the wheel well. Any help would be great.

    Why would you want to void your warranty?

    I could care less about the warranty. And why would it void the warrant and is it the warranty on just the suspension components alone ?

    On one of our Ford F350 4x4 diesels we got a U.S gear chip 65hp and 160lbs torque! On your newer one its a second to remove it and really doesnt void warrenty related to a (18) year ford rep!!!!!!!!!!! And they might say it does at the dealer only reason why is then the dealer can put blame on the chip and be not responsable. THEY DO MAKE CHIPS THAT ARE 100% warrenty backed. look at us gear, super chips, Banks, powerstroke flip chips, FD chips and others. As far as putting larger tires on you may loose low end due to the larger the tire the more rotating mass the smaller the tire turn over quicker. By putting 2 or 3 larger size tires on and a chip you will be right back where you started (as far as acceleration) keep your regular size tires. We also run a Banks kit on another F350 diesel 4wd 350hp 730lbs big big power!!! For try outs we did a 1/8 mile run at local drags ran 10.2 1/8 mustang gt and iroc z ran 10.00 not bad for a Diesel 4wd.

    I have the PSD with the 50/100 Super Chip. Great power and acceleration when pulling the trailer. Very little changes in EGT's and almost doubled the turbo boost. If you have a 2001 I would buy a PP III instead of a chip, here is more infor on that: http://hypertech-inc.com/

    If you want to test drive mine give me a call or send me an IM. Funny, yesterday I was pulling out and had to hurry, laid rubber while pulling my fully loaded enclosed trailer. I didn't mean to, nor do I regulary do that it just happened, just shows how much torque the truck has because I have 285's with M/S tread!:eek::cool: :D

    Do you have the 4X4 ..I wanted the 4X4 but couldnt dish the money out. So I was going to put a lift kit on it. Or atleast lift the front end to equal the Height of the rear end. I wanted to get the Thornbird tires. Preety nice tires but im not sure they make them small enough to fit on my truck and I dont know of anyone in charlotte that would carry them so that they could install them. I know the mail order companies have them but then you gotta find someone to install them . And its gonna cost Mucho $$$$ to ship em. stock tires on my truck are 265-75-16 I was wanting to go to atleast 285-75-16 if they will fit under the wheel well without lift kit ?

    I am only 18 so I really don't know what I am talking about, but I love powerstrokes. I can hear one a mile away. I would go w/ the Banks kit. I have talked to people that have them and love them. One guy told me had a prototype Banks kit that was a twin turbo. I don't know if it has come out or not yet, but it is supposed jump a powerstroke up to 500 something hp and 700 something ft lbs. of torque. One day I will own a powerstroke....one day.
