i wouldn't pic any of those off the shelf chips...... but thats just me and prob 99% of the people on here...

if it were my truck i would only put a custom tuned chip from TW, PHP or DP and set of regular gauges....

IMO I would go with a custom tuned chip from Matt @ Gearhead

I have ran everything other then the edge on my truck that you have listed and wasn't to impressed with any of them. Banks was junk, DP was alright just wasnt happy with it, TS stock tunes suck.

Custom tunes are the ONLY way to go.

I have a DP chip with 60-160 HP on 4 settings control, 60 being low #1 160 Being #4. Is this gonna hurt a factory motor? Ive heard head gasket issues with Chips.

I run TW tunes and if I were to try sometihng else it would be Matt @ Gearhead performance. I am happy with some of the 6 tunes I bought.

Out of your listing I would choose a TS. TW will reburn these at a significantly discounted rate if you don't like it.

turbo back exhaust, EGR delete, GPS, DVD, MP3

For now.............................
