    There are several to choose from, Superchips, DiaboSport but I use a laptop and programming software called HPTuners.

    You might be able to have someone local to H-Tine (I noticed you're in Brookshire, by Houston) throw a tune on your ride OR you can get a mail-order tuned set of computers and replace yours, sending yours back as "cores".

    I have a Bully Dog brand Triple Dog GT for gas trucks. Not going to lie, its probably the best out there right now and about the same price as others with less optons. It will work on yours and you can get one for about $300-$400 depending where you shop. The thing comes with a color screen, adjustable themes, on board dyno, 0-60 timer, 1/4 and 1/8 mile drag timer, OBD2 code translator, driving coach program for better gas mileage. It lets you not only set your engine to different performance tunes getting anywhere from 15 to 30 more hp (or set it back to the stock tune). Also you can adjust a lot of different things like shift points, speed and rev limiter, calibrate speedo for different size tires, and a whole lot more. mine even has an ethanol tune. now the stock truck will get 20 more hp of ethanol alone so combine the programmer and you get a whopping 55 more horses on ethanol!!! its a huge kick.

    ive had a hypertech and was happy with that, but this thing is awesome, and a really great deal.
