Chips,Tuners etc etc..

I'm trying to sort out which way is the best for my needs,
I don't race my truck or ever plan too, but I do understand the need for a big smokey burn out now and again. My truck is a daily driver but is expected to haul my wheeler around as well as my camper and anything else that needs to be towed here or there. I've read up on the DIY intake mods which seem straight forward enough as well as the DIY map fooler, Once I get at least a boost and egt gauge in this thing I want to turn it up a bit.
So I turn to those of you with first hand knowledge, what is the best way to go.. I see the bully dog 6 postion chips for about $400 and then there are the tuners which are cheaper but seem do the same thing minus the monitor feature....Anyone have opinions?

The huge advantage to a chip is its ability to shift on the fly. Vs a programmer you have to stop and load the program.

you can get a 4pos chip from Tony Wildman for about the same price as the bullydog. IMO his tuning is a much better option. www.totaldieselperformance.com

I agree with Luke. Tony has great tunes for all occasions. With gauges and the right tune, you can pull just about anything. Gauges are a must for any good chip.
