460 performance chip?

I have a 95 f350 with the 7.5 (460) motor and i was courious if there was a chip available for it. it has an automatic trans, with a non-mass air system. It seems to be gutless so i am looking into performance options.

Yes, I can chip it with a Diablo Sport chip or a Superchips Custom chip. But, I need to know the 4 digit code from the white sticker on the computer box to know 100% because programming is based off that code.

If they are long tube headers the chip will need to be custom programmed.

I didn't say a custom tune would be needed. "Superchips Custom" is a brand of a chip, not the same company as "Superchips". All Superchips Custom tunes are made for the specific application. The short tube headers in the power pack will work fine with them, and towing is okay to do with them.

MotorHaven handles three brands of chips/tuners:
Superchips
Superchips Custom
Diablo Sport

That option has always been there. The only big benefit to it is shifting on automatic transmissions. The power is minimal. If you want to gain more power in 87 octane mode it will cost you mileage.
