Default Had My Truck Chipped

I had my 2002 Ford Powerstoke Excursion chipped by the guys at Performance Motorsports Tech. WOW!!!!
The chip gave me 80 more HP and 150lbs Torque. The truck now has power, acceleration, shifts firmer and tows great. It's like a different vehicle. And i am getting 2-3 more miles per gallon.
I also bought this kick ass air intake. It flows 300% more air than the stock filter.
These numbers are real, they ran it on a dyno and i have the sheets.
Next i'm going for a 4" stainless exhaust.
Also they gave me a discount for being an OSO member.
I'm going to take some photos of the intake and post them.

Check out there new banner on OSO. or call them 954-974-1768

Question Why Dosen't Ford "chip" the PSD ?

I have a 2000 F350 Crew Cab Dually 4X4 with the PSD and have been considering the chip upgrade. It handled our 290 PQ with no problem, but our new boat weighs a few thousand pounds more.

boot, I did get your info. just not ready to pull the trigger.

The question I have is if these computer upgrades are a great as people say they are, why doesn't Ford provide them from the factory. I mean 80 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque and 2-3 better mpg, those are remarkable numbers. And I am not questioning them, too many people have said the same thing for it to not be true. My father is in a camping club, these guy's are power crazy, and they all have upgrades to the computer, exhaust, intake etc, and have all the guages; exhaust gas temp, intake manifold pressure, oil temp, trans temp, etc.
They also get 200,000 miles out of an engine.

Thus the question, why doesn't Ford do this to the truck from the factory

2K Excursion Limited- installed the SCMT a while back (60 hp program)- WD gauges (thanks boot!) 4" turbo back exhaust and K&N filter. I did some suspension mods that Ford should have done when they built it. Now an absolutely awesome vehicle!

There banner rotates on the board. The website is www.pmtchips.com or call them at 866-pmtchips

Next i'll do the exhaust then the gauge package. I've ordered a set of airlift air bags for the rear and i am going to add a leaf to the front. After that i may have some money left to put some fuel in the boat. Pictures to follow.
