I'm running a Superchip 1705. Comes with three tunes, tow, tow safe high performance, and high performance. I believe the claimed power breakdown of the three tunes is 40, 60, 100HP. Doubt there is quite that much of an increase in power, but my butt-dyno definitely notices a difference.
I don't hot-rod the truck much with diesel being $4.50 a gallon, but i can still roll coal in any of the tunes when the time is right.

Well it actually came with the truck when I bought it, but I'd say its worth the money. Definitely notice the extra power, and fuel mileage increased running the tunes.
Probably the thing I like best about it is the ability to read engine codes. Helped me diagnose a bad EBPS sensor that was killing my fuel mileage. Basically does two jobs in one, tunes and a basic scan tool.
