Obviously I am new to the site..
And by the way thanks to all those that greeted me with a warm welcome. Nice to be here.....
Now on to my interest. I have been reading as much as I can about these different so called "CHIPS" for the 5.2 liter lets face it they are all just ECU reprogrammers in one way or another. What my problem is, as I am sure with many others out there is which way to go. I see them from $59.00 that insall permanently into harness and take readings from one sensor or another and change the ECU out put. Some offer 75hp gains etc. Then I go on to name brands I know from previous vehicles and mods, and I see the prices at $200 to $300 plus which plug into the ECU access port inside the cab. These offer a more realistic HP and mpg gain.
I admit I am confused and in serious need of education in this area. I tow a small camper and occasionally a 19ft fishing boat. The truck seems to work so hard with either of them especially on long trips. The poor tranny is constantly shifting. I am leaning towards a stretched or faulty kick down cable on the tranny issue though.
Please Fellow "Z"ers enlightne me.
Be good all
