March 28, 2011They don`t make chips anymore for trucks. The motor is controlled by a computer called a PCM. You can option for a handheld tuner and if you do, Superchips or Diablo are two of the best in my opinion.
If your looking for the most bang for the buck. You can get a custom tune done that can really produce good results. Check out www.gowheatley.com and www.blackbearperformance.com. Those two offer some of the best customer service and awesome tunes for your truck.
March 28, 2011custom all the way! both wheatley and blackbear are the best investment you can do for your self. now blackbear offers the atuocal. this is a handheld unit that you log your truck and your driving style and you e mail it to him. he creates the tune emails it back, you download it on to the handheld and put it in the truck.so if you want to change anything you got through the process back and forth.it can store a few tunes in it and you can save them on you computer, such as: oh im going to put on some header.bam.done. its a little high in cost at first but if you are planning on mods and tweeks then its a good way to go. now on the other hand a traditional tune or scan tune are good too.the above is a scan tune as well.traditional id he builds a tune and send it to you. look at the web site,its the way to go.
