Like said, the AIS is a great system. Always shows single digit silicon levels on used oil analysis reports. As far as tuners are concerned, I made that $375 mistake myself. I first bought the predator programmer and now I have a T Wildman chip. Much better fuel economy & power.
Some of the 2001 models had the dreaded diode tranny, which made them prone to problems. Check the build date on your truck and see if you are included on this list. You are correct that increase power can shorten the life of your tranny, but alot depends on driving style.
Definitely need some gauges, like EGT, boost & tranny temp if you plan to add a chip/programmer.
