Question On the fly chips??

I am getting a on the fly chip and i don't know what to get. Some people say Banks 6 gun and some say get a custom dp tuner. Im am looking for milage and power? My truck is pretty much stock. I have a muffler delete and an afe stage 2 intake in the mail. I also dont really want to spend over 400$

Thanks

You should take him up on that deal. After you go with a custom tune youll never want that banks junk again. i personally went with Tony Wildman and iam very happy with his tunes. but there is also alot of other tuners out that just do some reading and see what you like the best. but i would deffitely go with a custom tune.

I'd be interested in a deal too. Please PM me with the price..... I am trying to decide between PHP, DP & TW and it really is just coming down to the cost.

Look into DI & swamps. I have run tunes from both and like them. DI has one of the best DD files I have come across IMO.
