    Hi guys. I've been lookig into getting a performance chip for my truck but im not sure which to choose or if thats the right direction. I drive my 1996 z71 alot more than I previously thought I would. I NEED to improve my gas mileage. I thought a performance chip might help. As a side note I'm not in need of any more horse power, but ill take it where I can get it. Money is not matter, so what are good options?

    There really is only 1 legitimate chip and that would be from Jet. I would look into a Tuner/programmer.

    Now that I think about it you are right, they are all programers. Anyways do you have any suggestions?

    Lots of good stuff on the market. Hypertech,Superchips, Diablo , Edge Etc. I would search all mfgs. to see what programmers they have for your Veh. Personally i'm sold on Edge for their support/customer serv. what good is a product with a ton of features when you cant get hold of someone in the tech dept. for help.

    nothing from diablo available for a 1996, nor any others that I'm aware of, since 1996's are not flash-programmable... you would need to get a chip...
