awesome when it works
12/5/2013 9:46 PM
great chip! tons of fun and pulls long steep hills real easy. had it for a bit over a year now and its proven to be a great chip for fun and for work. 140 setting smokes a lot off the line but once the boost climbs the smoke dissipates pretty quick. overall great chip in +50 weather. once it drops below 50 no matter what setting i have the chip on the truck won't turn over. i had to modify the plastic cover for the PCM so i could pull the chip out so i could start the truck. once it warms up i can shut it off take the keys out and put the chip back in and from then on it works great. i probably got a lemon but once i get the truck running its a great asset.

I was worried about putting any sort of tuner into my truck. I have an 01 7.3 with a 6 speed. I finally said screw it I'll give it a shot. First off the chip was so simple to install, took about an hour. I started the truck and it fired right up like always. The high idle is awesome in the morning, it really helps the truck warm up. 50 horse power woke the truck up so much I was shocked. Every other level in this chip just becomes more crazy and fun. In 140 horse the truck fights not to spin the tires. Almost so that you have to slowly give it the throttle or it will break free on you. This chip is amazing I cant even believe what its done to my truck. Definatley Recommend this to anyone who is sick of the sluggish stock 7.3... good job TS Performance!
Increase in mileage

We already had a AFE stage 2 and MBRP 4" exhaust on our Excursion. After the install we have only used the 50hp setting with a noticible difference in power and the gas mileage has gone up about 4 MPG. Can't wait until we go on a longer trip with it. The mileage is almost at 22MPG with a little in town and then highway at 62 mph at 45 degrees. I'm really impressed so far!!
Fantastic Product! (Update)

Finally got to pull our 9000lbs 5th wheel. 500 miles round trip. Pulled using 50HP setting. I've pulled the first half of this trip (pre-chip) several months ago. And I remember the grades that gave me fits with low speeds and high EGT's. WOW!!! seems to me, in overdrive EGT's have come down 200* or so. Dropped down out of overdrive considerably more. Between 400*-500*. The difference is a "REALLY BIG DEAL". ie; Worst grade on the trip, on the way home,
Before chip= topped at just under 50mph,EGT's @ 1150*
After chip= topped at 55mph,EGT's @900*.
As for speed....
Before chip=Riding Pyro Gauge. Lotta work to try to maintain 63-65.
After chip=Hey man! I know the tires are good, engine and tranny temps are great... but this truck has got 300k miles on it, the trans and TC are both question marks...f**KIN SLOW DOWN! THE SPEED LIMIT IS 75mph!!! Jeez!!! Get one for your truck. You'll be glad you did.

Lots of hp, some smoke. Not a lot. But good enough. Pretty much gives the truck balls. Easy to install to. I'd buy this chip again. For sure

Spent many hours reading specs and reviews,chose this 6 position programer and could not be happier. I really expected a big improvement but WOW I can't say enough about the instant change in this truck. It is a different truck completely. Tried the 50 & 75 hp but too scared to go higher. Might catch the hot rod fever I had over 35 years ago!!! Haven't had a chance to check mileage yet but am pulling a 5th wheel to Denver in two weeks. Will report back then. I owned a 7.3 for over 120k miles stock. Can kick my ass for not investing in this programer then.

I have a 1997 F350 7.3 auto 6637 3"DP 4"exhaust/no cat. I battled my PCM for a couple of hours at first. My PCM was frozen to the carrier. I sprayed it down with penatrating oil and came back to it the next day. I could not remove it with a hammer and wooden drift. I really didnt want to buy a new PCM, so I decided to clean the contacts as best I could with it installed. Worked out great. Started right up. Pulling out of the driveway I was worried how the E4OD transmission would react. I couldnt get over how effortlessly it got up to speed. Shifting was actually smoother and the shift points are awesome. This Thing ROCKS! Great job XDP! Thankyou soo much.

on the 140 setting really rolls the coal! best part is once you hit boost it clears up to a gray smoke which is the sign of a good tune. in my opinion its the best "canned tune" chip, especially for what you pay. and i really like the fact that you can switch on the fly too instead of having to shut down the truck to change settings.

This chip was super easy to install on my 7.3L F250. It was instant power and everything it promised. I hoghly recommened this product

this chip beats everything out there for the money!!! before i put this in my truck I was getting 9 miles per gal,now I run the chip on 75 hp & get 18 mpg & more power than I can use, but it is sure fun to play with. I tell everyone I know that they're throwing away a lot of money by not having one in there truck.then I take them for a ride & they're sold!!!!
cheapest, most ridiculous power jump ever! 02 F250 CCSBB

Combined with an MBRP 4 inch turbo back exhaust and Banks ram air intake on a 7.3 Ford psd. This system is sick. At the 100+ setting, I broke the tires lose in third gear trying to merge onto the interstate. The truck went from fun once the turbo spooled up and nothing special otherwise to like driving a rocket strapped to a missile when you stand on the accelerator. Wouldn't recommend the 140+ position without upgrading injectors, too, but that's your choice and your truck. I can't comment on mileage yet since I've only had it installed about three days.
TS Performance Chip (6 positioin) in 2001 F350 7.3L Diesel Engine
2/10/2013 4:30 PM
I installed the TS Performance chip in my 2001 F350 7.3L truck along with a 4" K&N Intake and 4" AFE Exhaust. The performance change has been nothing short of fantastic! With the chip set to +75 on my initial trip (mostly highway) my mpg went from 12.1 to 16.3, and its still climbing! Also, the truck feels much more responsive, and with the added horsepower it rarely downshifts on hills. When going 65mph on the highway, and wanting to pass, a simple push on the accelerator and an instant flood of power sends me up over 75+ for an easy pass. I am now installing gauges (EGT, Boost, Trans Temp) to monitor the engine even closer. I highly recommend this product!!!

My grandson & I have just installed the above chip in my 2001 F250 Lariat. I don't know why I waited so long. I plan to only use the 50hp gain except on long passes in Colorado. I do not intend to dial up the 100hp or 140hp as I am afraid I may damage turbo or tranny. The installation went alright but please follow installation instructions. The interface from PCM thru the firewall is a bit tricky & a small space of room to work. You really need to clean the contacts on the PCM probably more than you think as we had to make two trys as truck would not start at first. I mounted the knob on dash just to the right of ignition key & am trying to come up with type of small dots to line up with the mark on the knob. I highly recommend this product.

This chip is amazing I have ran a bullydog and edge and this is hy far the most power I love the throttle response but I also have 150cc injectors and .62mm turbo with 5 inch turbo back. I would recommend this chip to anyone but you must have upgrades if you turn it up past 100

First of all great customer service. Took 4 business days to get here from New Jersey to Oklahoma. Simple to install took little longer to install but probaly cause I fender flares cover my inner wheel cover little bit of a pain. Computer came right out no problem clean it up good with the scotch brite pad you receive and little rubbing achol, and Q-tips. Got it all hooked back up, put it on the 75hp setting notice differents right away in my throttle reponse and take off in my 97 F250 Crewcab 4x4, and transmission seems to shift alot smoother, not alot of black smoke but will try the 100hp setting and maybe I'll get it. But all & all best price around, great customer service and amazing product for the price, will be doing business again in the near future. Thanks XDP

Awesome upgrade, pays for itself in a few tanks

This chip woke my 7.3L right up. I left it at 75HP on the highway and saw a noticeable mileage increase, even with 35" tires. The 140 setting it a bit insane, a little too rough on the trans for my liking.
Before you get this chip, I'd make sure you have a few supporting mods: Proper intake, 4" (or more) exhaust, and at least a Pyro gauge.
Not too many others products beat this one for the money...

I bought the TS Performance 7.3 powerstroke chip (6 stage) about 2 years ago. I LOVE this product it has done way more than i thought it would do. It actually 'woke'my truck up. Its been the best investment i have ever made!!

This thing is awsome. realy woke my 1996 F350 truck up. I should have put one in years ago. I keep it set on 75hp for best all around performance. Fuel millage has increased about 5 mpg without my 35 foot 5th wheel and around 3 mpg with it. Passing other rigs or going up bridges is no problem even in 5th gear. The 140hp setting is an attension getter. Love the black smoke.
Best thing for my truck

I don't know where to start this chip was the best thing iv bought for my powerstroke shipping was super fast instructions great. IV only used it on the 75 hp setting and its turned it into a rocket ship the smoke is crazy can't wait to see the fuel economy and try the other settings I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a chip. Will be doing more business with these guys excellent service and customer support

99 f350 manual
just put it in last night ...i got this chip an god durn it woke my truck right up first time i took it out i almost had her side ways (140) even when its on 100 black black smoke comes out thick ,put it in 45 mins... fyi when you put this chip in make sure you clean the computer off really really good!! the only thing i didnt like is sometimes it does not start but that could be because i need to clean the computer off more .. if you want a chip that is going to blow smoke and save on fuel i would get this one
Love this chip
3/14/2012 6:51 PM
I got this chip about 2 months ago and I can not be happier. I have a 2003 excursion 7.3 and it woke her up quick. It blows plenty of smoke. If I have it on the 40hp tune I average around 18mpg which is awesome. Haven't tried putting it up to like the 100 yet and babying it but heard that works better. Also with it on the 140 my truck will break free easily and will take my buddies 2001 mustang gt easy up to like 50mph. Deffinitly well worth the buy, makes your truck a ton faster and more efficient. Also the guys over at xdp are all really cool and deffinitly know their stuff.

Just installed mine today. The power is incredible, my truck runs like new, the power is incredible, not a lot of smoke but the ponies are there when you need them.
Best Chip around for the money
2/9/2012 9:00 PM
My 97 stoker is like a new truck to me. Before I installed the chip, exhaust, and intake I would average 16mpg around town and 18mpg on the highway. Since I installed all of these products I am getting 18mpg around town and 21mpg highway with a high of 23 mpg (leaving the tuner in 75hp at all times). The only draw back to this chip for me is that it has made my tranny do some funny things with slipping and banging into gear, but this could just be that it is getting close to the 200k mark.
