    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

    Your truck doesnt have a removeable chip so you need a programmer. The Diablo Preditor hands down.

    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.

    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... ;)
