Hand held worth the money for stock '03 tahoe?
Basically I'm thinking of buying a hand held for my tahoe. Currently it is all stock. Isnit worth bthe money on a syock vehicle to buy the tuner? I do plan to do an CAI and exhaust in the future. Any input and best bang for buck tuner options would be grately appreciated.2003 Tahoe 4x4 blacked out with 5.3L and small lift.

I have a jet hand held. It is ok, I do notice a difference in shifting and it seems to have a little more power than before. My mpg went up slightly. In hindsight I would just spend the few extra bucks and get an autocal custom tune from Blackbear (still a handheld) or a diablew custom tune using a diablo tuner. I have been told that the results can be amazing from the couple guys I talked to that have custom tunes from these guys on stock trucks. My canned jet tune is nothing compared to the results these guys get
