About DP-Tuner

Company Overview

Who is DP-Tuner?


With a vision to provide diesel truck enthusiasts with custom tuning, Jody and Diane Tipton started DP-Tuner in 2005. As part-time business owners of a telecommunications company, they took a leap of faith into the diesel aftermarket performance industry.

Jody has 25 years of experience with computers and telecommunications. In 2002, the need for a reliable truck to haul equipment led to the purchase of their F250. Immediately, Jody was not happy with "stock" and purchased the available tuning software to do DIY tuning. Jody was determined to make it perfect. Jody met several people through one of the largest aftermarket Ford diesel forums of that time, and he began helping other diesel truck enthusiasts in 2004 with perfecting their trucks computer programming. Due to the astounding number of tuning requests for Jody to tune other trucks, Jody left corporate America to pursue diesel truck tuning full-time in 2005.

12 years later, DP-Tuner continues to be regarded as one of the top Ford diesel truck tuning companies in the world. They ship worldwide and will travel to your location by request for the ultimate tuning experience. DP-Tuner branded computer chip modules for the Ford 7.3L diesel and 4.6L gas engines are manufactured for DP-Tuner by Moatesware, LLC. DP-Tuner specializes in engine and transmission tuning for the Ford 7.3L, 6.0L, 6.4L, 4.6L Gas, and 6.6L Duramax. Other tuning options are available for the International trucks from 1994-1997.

Jody travels throughout the year to various locations worldwide at the request of their customers. This enables Jody to continue "tweaking" his already perfected computer programming. Jody's programs are fresh and new from the information he obtains while live tuning. When you purchase a DP-Tuner chip module or a custom handheld programmer you will receive the latest tuning DP-Tuner has to offer.
