    I know that on a gas burner there isn't as much of an increase like a diesel, but I wanna know what ya'll have done to increase horses and which chips, programmers, or tuners ya'll have found to be favorites and which arent so good!

    For a gas burner the best tune you can do is a custom tune from someone like blackbear, diablew and a couple others

    Look into lew he's a member of the site and can set you up with a tuner and custom tunes to go with. Opening up the front and rear of the motor with a CIA, headers and exhaust along with the tune well give you a much faster truck. Then I'd start looking into port work and a cam.dont forget bout your tranny once you start making good power. Also your brakes cuz going fast isnt fun when you don't stop.

    I had a special high performance shop here in Auburn simply plug in their lap top to my ecu and put the truck on their dynomometer after doing other more substantial modifications (high torque roller camshaft, roller lifters, aluminum large combustion chamber heads, custom steel roller rocker assemblies, etc.) and they tuned the ecu and the transmission shifting to maximize torque and horsepower. This is the best way to do it in my opinion. Find a shop that is good at tuning your OEM ecu on a dynomometer. You get exactly what the engine needs instead of someone else's formula.
