Ok guys, the big day is coming soon i hope. I plan on buying a chip soon. I've just got a few questions to ease my decisions.

I'm about 95% sure im goin with a TW chip, mainly because of the free reburns, cause who knows, i might do injectors one day. My other option is a DP tuner, how do they compare? I imagine both max out the injectors and everything on the truck. I guess, other than the free reburns, what would make me want one over the other? also, what kind of fuel mileage increase should i expect?

Also, gauges, i want something that matches the factory gauges because i don't plan on upgrading them. I wanna go with boost, pyro, and trans mounted on the A pillar. I know a lot of people like Isspros. Any other suggestions? Can a vendor hook me up with a good deal?

And finally the transmission, i imagine a valve body upgrade is a good idea, from what ive heard. Who makes a good VB? also, what about a torque converter? How much are they, is it really required?

Sorry for the long post, but i like to make informed decisions, and want to avoid buyers remorse.:)

[highlight]I would look into the free reburns a little more. It's not free reburns for life whenever you need it.[/highlight]

[highlight]Get the Diprocol Optix series...perfect factory match[/highlight]

[highlight]Try John Wood, or Brians truck shop[/highlight]

I have a DP with a Woods valve body and its awesome!!!! Very Quick and firm shifts. I have no experience with the others but have heard nothing but good about them as well. For guages I have the DiPricols and they are a very nice guage, very nice quality.

I guess, other than the free reburns, what would make me want one over the other? also, what kind of fuel mileage increase should i expect? I don't think you'll go wrong going with either tuner. Both are venders here. You just will have to look at the options both offer and decide which makes more sense to you. Send them an e-mail with any questions and whichever gives you that warm and fuzzy,buy that one. Fuel mileage I believe to be more relative to the weight of your right foot on the skinny pedal.Also, gauges, i want something that matches the factory gauges because i don't plan on upgrading them. I wanna go with boost, pyro, and trans mounted on the A pillar. I know a lot of people like Isspros. Any other suggestions? Can a vendor hook me up with a good deal?

Ask this question in your e-mail to the tuners as to which valve body they prefer to work with. Depending on which tuner as to which valve body they may recommend. Whichever valve body you choose, ask that vendor for a recommendation on T/C's
