For the most part 6 position is the wat to go. DP also makes a shift on the fly chip just not based on the ts design. PHP is also making a chip that looks like the DP tuner i think its the hydra. Allow for up to 16 or 17 tunes. Its really just personal preference. I would say your top three in no order are Tony Wildman(TW), Power Hungry Performance(PHP), and DP Tuner.

PMRs are a crap shoot. They can write you any tune but with stock injectors youre not gonna put out more than about 325 and thats with supporting mods. With tuning as advanced as it is now (espicially PHP), there are guys running 500hp daily. But some get to 375 and have troubles.

If youre looking to do a complete rebuild youre looking at atleast 5k in a tall block.

Swamps would be good to talk to also.
And BTS if they're still doing it since they'll be building your trans.
