Programmer for manuals

it seems that most everyone has automatic transmissions in their trucks. i have a manual transmission and was wondering if there is a programmer or chip out there that works better with the manual transmission, and are chips and programmers the same or different? thanks guys

I have a manual as well and I run an SCT programer. I have custum tunes from Eric at innovative diesel and I love them. It really helps with the turbo lag, you do not have to slip the clutch as much.
Yes there is a differance between a programer and a chip. A programer rewrites the program that is in your trucks computer. What is called a chip is a switch on the fly, because technacly they do not make a chip for the 6.0 that I know of. The switch on the fly plugs into sensors and fools the stock program into bumping up the fuel.
One more thing, I see you are in Oregon. Where in Or are you.
