Programmer or Intake?
Ok i have a question guys. I just put my rims and tires on. Now i either want a cold air intake or a programmer. Which one should i go with, the programmer or the intake? I was kind of leaning torwards the programmer because i need to get my truck recalibrated and my dealership told me its 320 dollas so i figured id get a programmer and recaibrate it on there and get a little extra hp and mpgs. Any opinions?

Programmer, or go with a custom tune from one of the sponsors here on the site. I do believe there are 2 here. A custom tune is always best.2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD Ex. Cab, Fire Red, 6.6L Duramax LMM Equipped with UTG Rocker Pods

Will a custom tune recalibrate my speedometer?

I'd say go for the programmer. Get the tire size set right for your speedo so your not going a diff. speed then you actually are and such. You are also going to get a few MPG, and a small power boost. I loved the results of my K&N intake but in your situation i'd get the programmer first.2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 5.3L Z71 - 4x4
