Default Need help. too many options

i have a 2006 QC Big Horn 4.7L and i was looking into getting a programmer. this is for power when i want to have fun but most importantly raiseing my MPG. im sitting at about 11 MPG( all my driving is around town). ive looked at the SC and all other brands. since i have the 4.7 i dont know if it is worth it to get a 600$ one with the touch screen. in your opinion what is the best one out there.

Unfortunately, the 2007 and older 4.7L doesn't gain as much power as the 2008+ 4.7L. It is still a good buy though, adding roughly 20hp MAX gain. Don't expect much more than 1, MAYBE 2 mpg at the most, and that's probably unlikely.

The superchips is the best from my experience.

Also, all the tunes are the same, so you can get the cheapest or most expensive tuner from a company and the performance will be the same.
