    I was thinking about the same thing, but i went with the pro comp power pro tuner. Its made by hypertech, Im really not a hypertech fan but it was on sale and i thought i'd try it. I have a NBS Z71, and so far im pretty impressed. It actually gave it a nice power increase. I also have a magnaflow exhaust system on mine. Just a little food for thought for ya.

    you know you get better control and better results with a computer tune and its not as scary as it sound. take a look at PCMforless.com and look at the order form to see what im talking about. i had a 04 canyon done and it was like night and day diff. two wheel drive reg cab came with about a 27 or 28 inch tall tire, i lifted it 3" and put 32X11's on it and had the tune done and it felt like i never did those things to it! they corrected the speedo reading, accounted for my intake and exhaust, the altitude where i was living and what ever else i could think of...and the best part is it was only $99! i gained about 26 hp on the dino with premium gas. check it out

    wwere did you get it tuned. will it void the warrenty. the only reason I wanted the edge was it dosent leave anything in the computer. so the dealer would never know. thanks let me know how and were you got your truck tuned. thanks pat

    im not sure if or how they can tell at the dealer if you have something done to the computer. ill call them and ask monday and let you know. all i had to do is mail my computer in to PCMforless and they sent it back in a few days and i pluged it back up and it ran like a champ. but if you need your vehicle there is other things you can do like they can send you a temp computer with the tune so you can see how its going to be.
