    around my area there isn't to many options on auto performance. what kind of place would i need to take it to get it done? how much does that usually run? and will it mess up my warranty?

    If you don't have any well known reputable shops in your area go with a Diablo Sport Predator.
    Since the tune is only as good as the tuner who does it. The Diablo Sport guys will also help you come up with a custom tune for your truck after you run a log and submit it to them.

    We carry them so PM me for a price and also if you purchase it from us I'll help you with making any changes that need to be done.

    i have a hypertech power programmer III on my 07 4.8 silverado and didn't feel much of a difference, honestely. i'd say it was worth it just to change the revs, shift points, speed governor and to dial in the rear axle and tire size though. like they said above, custom tune ftw.
