Thanks!

have you tried hypertech chips? they improved my vehicle's horsepower torque and fuel economy. And also recalibrate speedometers.

i run a superchips programmer on my truck and it works amazing. I mean if your looking for a big change in things you are gonna need more than just a programmer but like I said the superchips is a definite noticable difference

Welcome from another Buckeye alum! Just a warning to stay away from the cheap program chips. All they do is spoof the computer into seeing a rich condition via the air intake temp sensor, or the O2 sensors. The computer then leans out the mix, raising your exhaust gas temp and setting you up for engine damage down the road. I just got a superchip 3715 , used on ebay, for $175. Just installed it yesterday, so no feedback yet, but all the reviews were pretty good.

Check and see if Diablosport makes one for your truck . A little pricey but seem to be the best ones out there .

I dont doubt that it makes power, I doubt it is helping w/ fuel economy. That was what jasandalb had asked about.

I have a superchip installed on my ram and I went from 14mpg to about 16.7mpg, and I have a heavy foot. The power gains were very noticeable as well.
