Exhaust, Gauges, and SCT with custom tunes. I would do it in that order.

get rid of that superchip and buy a sct from innovative with custom tunes. it'll run ya about $400 but it will put a big smile on your face. be sure to get gauges tho.

Agree with above suggestions....and return truck to stock and drive for a day or two (if possible) before taking it in.

As usual I am late to the party, but these fellas have steered you in the correct direction. I could not agree with them more! Dump the Superchips and get a SCT with custom tuning and don't forget the gauges and exhaust. Oh and btw WELCOME to the Org!
