They don't make the same superchips tuner for the 5.9's. The SC for 5.9's doesn't allow for custom shift points, and we don't have MDS lol.
From what I've seen, people see greater gains from an SCT from Hemifever then a Superchips tuner. And those two are the only real notable tuners for a 5.9 as Hypertech's and the others aren't worth much. The great thing about Hemifever's SCT is that he get's rid of the torque management system so you're getting all the power from the start which will be really noticeable right off the line. Not to mention he makes these tunes specifically for the 5.9 gasser so that the A/F ratios are where they should be and the gains are perfect for a stock motor with light modifications. Also, if you ever decided to mess around with cams or anything internal, he can write you custom tunes for your application.
