Welcome to the org. The only problem with stacks is it takes up bed space and it makes a mess (esp on a white truck). I would go with gauges and then a chip. I would do pyro, tranny temp, and boost gauge. Then use a custom chip like PHP, Beans, TW, or DP.

all here reccomend custom tunes for psd's. best part is as you mod most of the tuners will reburn for free to make full use of the new mods.
