just one quick question........why? ur not gonna gain anything. The only reason an edge would ever be in my truck is for the CTS as just gauges.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

does the GT tuner have gauges? if so just keep it for that. you will gain more by getting a custom tuned 6 position chip than stacking 2 chips. these trucks arent 24v's or commonrails

you CAN NOT stack chips on 7.3... Bottom line.

Truck is for SALE.
Looking for a GT4202 or similar sized BW turbo... PM me if you have one.

Cheap....? You get what you pay for bud. A good "custom tuned" chip will cost you about $350-500

I know where to get them cheaper but they are not a site sponsor. And their tunes are highly recommended.
