US Diesel Chips?

Does anyone here have any experience with these chips? I am curious as to whether they work as advertised, or if it is a rip off. Here is a link to the one I am looking at:

2001 ( 5.9L ) Dodge Cummins Engine Power Chip Diesel Performance Chips ( 0-100 HP ) 24 Valve

i would suspect theyre garbage, but do not have experience with them personally, so a biased opinion from me is no good, but in my opinion if your going to spend that kind of money for a "chip" tuner module whatever, why not buy from a trusted brand you and others know about personally such as Quadzilla, Edge, TST, smarty, Diablosport, ect ect, i will list some sites for you to browse


DiabloSport :: Gas and Diesel Tuning Systems


http://quadzillapower.com


http://tstproducts.com


Edge Products: Home


Those products are proven reliable and worthy

A little browsing of the site shows it's a Dr. Performance "chip". Which since they don't tap the pump, the most the chip can make is 65hp. Spend the money on a better chip for that kinda change.

The only thing I am hesitant about it having a tuning module in the truck before I replace the torque converter, valve body, and the lift pump. I was thinking that i just want the module for the better mileage until the tranny is built. Any thoughts?

edge is pretty user friendly, and is a nice package adds decent HP get an edge comp though instead


quad will add the HP but eat the hell out of your pump and tranny

No lift pump, and no fuel pressure gauge? Then no tuners of any kind.

Custom pinstriped Power Wheel. I started out with very little... I still have most of it. Feel free to PM me anytime.
