what would u get a chip or programmer and what brand i have the 5.3l in my truck 2007
depends on what u want, if u want a complete cutom tune where u can tweak it like u want, go with the diablo, but if u arnt mechanicly inclined and want to keep it basic, i would go with the hypertech. its simple and can be installed in miniuts
i would go with a programmer. i have a jet programmer on m 07 classic. but the best programmer on the market is the diablo. and you dont have to mechanically inclined to use the diablo!
Your truck doesnt have a removeable chip so you need a programmer. The Diablo Preditor hands down.
The diablo and if that is not enough you can get a Lewtune via email.
correct, you need a programmer...
vehicles no longer use chips any more - haven't for years...
everything is flash-based tuning to the vehicles ECM, which is done using a programmer...
and I concur with the others above, get a diablo predator!
Get a BlackBear Tune. I've heard nothing but good things about the tune.
i got a hypertech programmer take s bout 10 min to go through it ,it is so idiot proof a monkey could do it ,and it works awsome ....love it and if something happens hyper tech will take care of fixing it (a lil added bonus)
what about a tuner for the 5.3L that cuts back to 4 cylinders when the 8 is not need,what would be the recomendation in that case
the diablo predator works with the AFM/DOD vehicles... you can install a tune and leave that functionality enabled, or you can even disable it altogether, so that it is in V8 mode all the time.
If you do leave it enabled, the diablo tunes have adjusted the DOD settings so that you will get better mileage with the DOD on compared to stock settings...
