Dont get the TS, definitely get the TW chip, its custom tuned and has unlimited reburns in case you add bigger injectors, turbo, etc. I had the TS chip and just got a TW chip and it is ten times better. For tunes I would do Economy, street, tow, extreme, high idle and smoke for fun.

I'm running a chip from Diesel Innovations. He's got the fastest truck out there so I think he's got a good idea on how to tune chips. All you really need for programs is stock, tow, extreem.

def go with a custom tuned chip... price is only a lil more and you will be way more satisfied with it.... dont forget gauges though.. you need at least a pyro gauge...

my choice is for a TW chip... let me know if you need any more info on it
