a custom chip is always going to trump off the shelf programmers because the programmers are generic tunes that work on every truck. a custom chip from say Beans (NLTD), DP, Gearhead, Swamps, PHP, Tony wildman, is going to be tuned to your specific pcm code so its tuned for your specific engine. I would personally look into the PHP Hydra as you can load other tuners tunes on to it and to me it would be very convenient as certain tuners have better tunes in different areas, tuner A could have the best hot tune, and Tuner B could have the best tow or econo tune with the hydra you would have the luxury of having both tunes.
I personally think Beans (NLTD) and gearhead have the best tunes. thats just my opinion though. I wish i wouldve waited a little longer and i couldve gotten the hydra and would be able to have both of them.
