Question To tune, or not to tune! Opinions/experience wanted!

So I'm considering a tuner for my truck. But want input from people that have them.

First off, my trucks upgrades, performance wise, are k&n drop in filter, mbrp exhaust and just put in a catch can. I want to wake my truck up a little, have a bit of fun, but nothing crazy. I'll never race it, it is driven quite a bit for commuting and such. Just once in a while I want to be able to have fun with the power the truck has (hidden under torque management and TC)

Debating between bully dog for the hemi, and just using their canned tunes (like I said, I don't need all out, every hp I can get) and the other option is diablo in tune dcx with a custom tune. Looking for input on both units for people that have them, what your opinions are for my truck (worth the extra money for the custom tune?).

And if you guys know of features one has that the other doesn't that I may want to have, please also share those.

Thanks for the help!

IMO, the best would be a Diablosport Intune with Hemifever tuning. Future flexibility but killer trans and engine maps up front for your basice mods. You can't go wrong with Hemifever.

Yeah, Im sure it will do anything you need. I know they have been putting tunes in diesel trucks and a ton LS1 computers. I hope they van just burn everything I need. most stuff from Snap on is a lot more since the dont charge a finance charge. They get it on the front end.
