http://www.efilive.com/ FTW!!! I also heard something about Bullydog is getting into gas motors as well...have not seen anything from them or read any dyno results yet. They made great programmers for the diesel trucks hopefully they make a great programmers for gas trucks as well. I guess we just wait and see!

You may want to consider an ecm tune instead. It will cost the same or less and give you more results (performance wise).

Look into black bear performance.

I sell programmers and I will not sell you one for a gasser. Not worth the money spent versus performance gained. Reflash your ECM as suggested above.

x2 Also look on their website for the "live" tunes. Justin from blackbear goes all over the US and schedules meets and its cheaper and he tunes as you drive around so you can tell him what you dont like and do. Ive heard nothing but good things, even from there "traditional" mail order tune. He will also sell u another computer so u can keep your stock one.
