Default what programmer should i buy

ok, i have had my 07 ram 1500 4x4 for about 5 months now, i havent done a alot of mods due to budget but what i have done im happy with

2.5 leveling kit
flowmaster exhaust
k&n cai
and and i through some 33 toyo open country mt's on for good looks.

im wondering whats the best programer i can purchase for my truck without spending over 400 bucks

i have been reading ( for a whole 15 minutes ) on different programmers and it seems as if the superchip cortex is my best way to go.

can i get some feedback on this along with some info and experianced reviews, im looking to be able to control the settings somewhat, im driving about 40 minutes to work and back each day so fuel savings would be a benifit but i also want to be able to " flip a switch " and have some more horse power to play with when im not on my commute.

The best tuner you can get is the diablosport predator, expensive doesn't mean better always, it depends what you are exactly looking to do.

Not on the fly tune changes while driving. You have to go through ignition on/off cycles when going from one tune to another.

If you are looking for tuners keep an eye on your local Craigslist, I was about to buy my DSP online when one popped up for $125 on CL, saved me a ton of money for other mods.

Superchips 3865 with the Advanced Transmission Tuning option, unless you need custom tuning then Diablo.
