We can get you setup with a chip or programmer and some tunes if you are interested.

We have a couple different options as far as chips go.

We have the F5 chip(check it out HERE)

Or we have the F6 chip(check it out HERE)

Both chips will hold up to 16 tunes. The difference between the two is that the F5 has to be sent in to us if you want to update your existing tunes or receive new ones, whereas the F6 connects straight to your computer via USB to receive or update tunes. The F6 never has to be removed from the PCM once installed.

We can also get you setup with our Infinity if you are interested in going the programmer route. The Infinity will tune, monitor, read DTC's, run KOEO/KOER tests, play media, datalog, and much much more. It is available as a base unit where you can add what you want to it, or a preloaded version. You can check them out HERE

Let me know if you need anymore help or information.

Do not get the chip thats linked above; those are canned tunes. Get the php phoenix chip, less than $300. Will make your truck run like a dream.

Just an FYI, the above is referencing the linked TS chip.

DP Tuner tunes are not canned.
