Which tune for the streets

Im thinking about getting a Chip soon from TW or DP and was wondering which tune gives you the best throttle response and tourque ( not WOT) but while just driving around town.

my Truck is mainly used to drive to work and carry all of my tools ( about 300lbs of tools max and RARELY tow with it) So its basically always used for city/hwy driving and Id love to have some snappiness out of her. I drive a 04 Srt-4 Turbo (11.2@126) 69camaro and throttle response is a beautifull thing. I know its not going to be the same but i wouldnt mind just a tad more. Im actually very surprised on how well my Van Pulls at WOT

k what other mods have you done to the truck?

you running intake, gauges, exhaust?

at the very least you need gauges... you dont "need" intake or exhaust but its highly recommended...

also how many positions where you looking for on the chip?

Not running nothing at all yet, I would love to run an intake but I cant seem to find NOTHING for my van. I will be buying gauges soon ( boost and egt) and as for the exhaust, well ill be taking off my muffler and maybe CAT and go with 4" from the DP back... nothing crazy.

Thinking about 2 pos? 80econo and maybe 40tow? but I RARELY tow like I said.


THanks

Danny

Im in my 120 race from DP all the time, unless the roads are bad. Shifts great, throttle response is awesome, and power is there immediately when you want it, mileage is good as well.
