...what amount do you consider inexpensive? might want to change the stock Y pipe for better exhaust flow. Also check what gearing you have, you may want to gear up too..

the Bullydog is an ok programmer...if you haven't bought and are considering one, look at Diablo or Superchips, they are tiers higher in functionality and user options then the BD.

..it keeps the engine operating temperature cooler which is safer in the long run for a motor...especially when you do performance mods. A good example...during the winter months is when people like to go to the track because of the cooler weather. You'll notice in hot weather that your truck will run sluggish and in cool weather more responsive.

I like the GT it doesnt add as much power as wished, but I like being able to monitor everything, and with the srt a pillar it looks pretty sweet too, if your considering getting one, look on craigslist, i think the dallas area, there is a store through craigs that sells them for less than anywhere you will find, overall it does well.
