What tuner would you guys go with? I've heard a lot about tony wild man tunes and beans tunes but what do you guys think the best overall tuner is for price, reliability, and custom tunes?????

PHP for sure. Their customer service isn't lacking. They're usually busy all the time. Spend a little more and do injectors?

Send it to me...?

If you want engine/tranny, I would say PHP Chip, ($300) Valve Body, ($250), Tranny Cooler, ($150ish) Hutch/Harpoon, ($160) and HPX/FRX. ($60/$180)

A little over... But I can honestly say that the ^Above that I haven't done yet, will be getting done the soon as my tax return comes in.

Bob at Dieselsite and Clay at Riffraff will be getting some decent orders from the this year!

Brian's Truck Shop (BTS) or John Wood. (JW)

I'll most likely be going the JW route since Clay has them.
