Default Tuners

Who are the go-to tuners these days for the ol 7.3? I see a few strange names thrown around but don’t recognize hardly any of them. Are they all Facebook warriors or what? If not, who are they?

Looking to update tuning on the 2000. Has pre-methhead Jonathan tuning and I think there’s definitely room for improvement by today’s standards.

Most are legit tuners. Quite a few new names but many have been in the game for a while. The older tuners are still around as well like PHP, DP, Geerhead etc. Some of the newer tuning options I see thrown around are Jeli built, (Brian Jelich a familiar name) SDK performance (Dan K), 1023 diesel, Andrew Arthur.

Of all the tunes I’ve run, I like Gear Head’s the best.

I’ve ran PHP and tyrant and brian jelichs. Brian’s tunes imo are the best I’ve ran. Power is smooth, not a smoke show and gets down compared to the others. Tyrant would be a close second.

I have run PHP, ********, 1023, Jelibuilt tunes. I liked 1023 tunes more than ******** for sure as they were much cleaner. Then I tried Jelibuilt tunes and they are even better with more power and better shifting.

I plan to try some SDK tunes at some point soon.

As far as these new guys being Facebook warriors, yes I guess you could say they are, but they are very helpful and have to each be getting customers by the hundreds per week based on the daily amount of people asking for info. 1023 just bought a new much bigger shop after only being in business for 2 years. Doing something right.

Thanks for the feedback. So “who” is 1023? Were they ever on the forums?

Brian’s name I remember, so that gives me some comfort with his tunes. Knew Andrew years ago and didn’t know he had gotten this much into tuning.

I’ve personally ran TY Rant, G H, and bills tuning before he was php.

Trying to determine who I want to get tunes from. Also not sure if I’m going to sell the ts chip and go with a hydra, or just keep the ts and get customs tunes for it.

1023 was started bt Dusty Hogate. He has been on other forums. They are in Alaska. I've seen mixed comments and reviews.

i run all those and have mostly lived tuned and deal with them regularly, fantastic options.
