Best Value Chip or Tuner

Hello, I am new to this forum just getting my first diesel recently.
I have a '04 PSD and am wondering what the best value is for someone who wants efficiency, reliability and a little fun once in a while.

I have looked at innovative diesel's SCT custom tune and liked what i saw. Any recommendations from people who are well versed in this area?

you need to run boost, pyro, and trans temp (if you have an auto) before you put any kind of tuner on your truck....

we offer a combo kit with the gauge kit and X3 with innovative tunes : SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit

+1 for Raul's suggestion. Innovative tunes on an SCT, and the 3 basic gauges pretty much everyone should run...

Plus a few other odds and ends...

How is the edge insight? I am interested in its features, is it worth it?

I really like my insight. There are so many different things it can monitor. The insight is easy to install and the mounting kits from edge fit very well in our trucks.
