Short Story: The PHP Phoenix is well worth the money!
Long Story: I bought this truck three weeks ago from a friend of my father's. It came with an edge evolution already installed set on the extreme setting. While driving home (1200 miles) I was able to get 19mpg average but noticed on mountain passes egt's would get to around 1300 degrees just to maintain 65mph. Once home I started researching and decided to order the php phoenix. Daily driving the edge got around 17mpg. I sold the edge and drove the truck stock for a week. As you can imagine the truck was a dog and got around 14mpg with simular driving habits as the edge. I ordered my phoenix from KT performance and it was shipped the next day. I got stock, 1000 high idle, 65 daily, 100 performance, 120 race, and 140 extreme. Installation was quite easy but I did learn the easiest way to get silicon off was to scrape it with a sharp knife.
So far I have ran the 65 daily, 120 race and 140 extreme. The 65 daily feels as powerful as the edge on extreme but with zero smoke and better shifting habits. The edge seemed to want to go directly from third to locked overdrive at 40. The 140 extreme seems to shift early to cause more smoke output but I suppose is nice for screwing around, though I feel it could turn someone into a douche pretty quick. I just tried the 120 race this morning and all I can say is WOW! It chirps first and straight burns the tires in second even running 35s. I had previously owned an efi live tuned 5.3 chevy and I feel this truck could easily beat it to 60. The smoke output was a slight haze and max egt 0-70 was around 1350. I would Highly recommend this chip.
I will post mileage when I fill it up
