Just want to send a sincere thank you to you both. I won't go into detail about how amazing my truck runs now as I'm sure you frequently hear that (however I must say that it has far exceeded my expectations), but I did want to let you know how amazed and impressed I am with your service. You took time out of your Saturday, on the 4th of July no less, to help me out and get my tunes complete. I can honestly say I've never experienced such commitment and follow-through from a business owner.Bruce
I will be your best salesman in Calgary and will be sure to send you as much business as I can.
Thanks again, sorry to have taken up so much of your time last weekend.

Upgrade with Custom Tunes
I wanted to Thank You and your wife for your professionalism, and service oriented attitude.Bruce
The tunes you created for me are excellent! They canned tunes were impressive but the custom tunes really brought my truck to life. Like most people I loaded the Performance tune first and I was stunned by the power. I usually drive like a little old man but I really pushed her this week and normally I would use a half a tank a week but this week I only used a quarter tank. That's was getting "ON" it to boot.
A buddy of mine (Poor soul, a Chevy driving lover) borrowed the truck one day and he came back wondering what I had done to it 🙂 He was impressed and wondered if you do Chevy's as well so I told him I would ask you. Either way I think there may be some Marines from MCAS Miramar ordering Gryphons soon. I know I am saving ga$ with this tune. After this tank is gone I will be trying the Econo tune you created for me.
Take care, get some rest, and last but NOT least "Thank You" both.

Gryphon Programmer with Custom Tunes
I just returned form a trip with my 1999.5 F-550 pulling a Cedar Creek 36 RLTS. Total vehicle weight: around 24,000 lb. 7.3 4x4 ZF6 with 4.88 rear axle. 2500 rpm @ 70 mph in OD. I was running with a Diablo Predator before and was forced to return the truck to stock tune just to tow the trailer because the EGT would easily hit 1400 degrees on any hill, even using their mildest Tow/Safe tunes.
I purchased a Phoenix 6 position chip with
- High Idle
- 25hp Heavy tow
- 40hp Medium tow
- 80hp Performance
After installing the chip and pulling the trailer, I found that on the 25hp Heavy Tow, the engine would pull the trailer up any hill up to about 4-5% grade in OD without having to shift down.
The turbo would simply spool up and the EGT's would not go over 1100 degrees - cooler by 100 degrees over the stock tune. It was very surprising to me how much better the engine sounded and ran as well. Bill knows his stuff and if I ever have a need for a another chip on a different truck I will not consider any other vendor. VERY satisified customer.

Custom Tuned Phoenix Chip
I just returned Hey everyone, just wanted to post about my great experience with PHP. I know I was probably not the only one waiting a while for custom tunes but it was more than worth the wait. Not only does my F150 run better, it has better acceleration and when I want to save gas, I can average as much as my V6 Mustang which has a 8.8 rear with 3.73s with the economy tune.Jonathan
On the performance tune in a 1 hour drive I averaged 15 in one direction with flooring it several times since I was still testing out the tune. Drove it back home cruising at like 23mpgs to a gallon and averaged about 17. Is this great or what?
It gets even better, Ice Storm last night in North Jersey so I had to use 4wd to drive home, drove an entire hour between 40 and 60mph with the 4wd on, and I was cruising most of the time around 19 to 23mpgs, unless I was accelerating and I averaged 15.5. When I first bought the truck, I was averaging from 12mpgs with 2wd and a semi-heavy foot to 8mpg with 4wd. I mean this is really great and Bill knows what he's doing, has anyone else seen improvements like this? I am shocked, I wish my v6 with 3.73s could get better mpgs.
Bill with your custom tunes, I think you should eventually tackle custom tunes for Mustangs and if you do, I'll be one of the first to try it and recommend it to my club of 570+ members.
Once again, I would like to thank PHP, especially the helpful people who helped keep me patient. Thanks and great work!
