    Default Chip advise

    Are performance chips advisable for the 6.0 gas? I'm looking for power not speed. Thanks in advance.

    What year, model etc, because I think most the newer ones use programmers or custom tuned ecu's instead of chips.

    Cool Chip advice

    Anything from 1996 to current doesnt have a removeable E-Prom (chip). You can use a programmer, I like the Diablo because you can fine tune your trucks ecm more than wit Superchips and Hypertech. The Diablo will work if you have basic bolt-ons (CAI, exhaust,headers). If you have a cam,head work etc. than you should go with a custom tune from Diablo,Blackbear,Wheatly, Nelson and Wait4Me.
