thanks guys im going to keep an eye out for it! alot of people it tells me its bad for the truck because its putting extra wear on the truck, when they made the truck they started out the testing with alot of HP and then kept dropping it till they found a happy medium where it would last awhile, putting a chip into it is just gunna reck it quicker? is this correct or false
That's BS. Not at all true. It'll only wear out faster if you drive it rougher/harder and beat it. All my friend's have either superchips, diablo sport, or hptuner's on all our cars and trucks and they all go 100,000 + miles before they sell them and never any issues caused by the tuners. This includes regularly running them down the dragstrip, and still no issues.

The only thing that MAY wear out faster is if you turn off torque management in the transmission on the superchips. It'll cause a little more wear on the transmission, not much though IMO.
