Default performance chip question

hello i am guna start looking around for performance chips for my 96 OBDII f150 and since i have literally no experience with them, aside from knowing what brands to look at like edge and jet. i need some advice on where to look for a good chip since im having a hard time. also has anyone else noticed any improvement with a chip int he 96 f150? here is one chip i found earlier.

lol my first post says its a 96 in 3 places and that its an OBDII but yes iv tried looking into the ones iv found and they all say 14-19 hp increase which sounds reasonable but of course that number is always higher then what you really get.

You're looking for stuff for the black sheep of our trucks. Most places don't make anything for the one year only '96 OBDII. That first one won't work on your '96 if it works on '87-'95 but that second one looks like the holy grail.
