Default what chip to go with?

im gonna try to get a chip whenever i get my taxes back. i know most people get the jet, but does this take off the torque management? i want to know which one will do the most for my truck...which also means the worst to my gas. good thing i got a job

I used the Hypertech Max Energy Power programmer on my 2000 5.2L. I have never used the Superchips Programmer that is mentioned alot in these forums. But my Hypertech gave me more power and better gas mileage. You can update it on the internet and it will read and clear DTC's. Performance wise Superchips will give you more power. I found the Hypertech fit my budget a little better at the time and offers similar additional features as the Superchips Flashpaq.

Talking to my favorite mechanic about chips etc. he claims leave the motor alone and gear down to 4:10 ratio and the power will be gained, he says that Chrysler spends millions to get the best power/fuel economy in a street vehicle. I dont know if I agree but it does make some sense.

I would go with a custom tune for our trucks. There is a member on w w w. d o d g e f o r u m . c o m that goes by the name HemiFever. He does custom tunes for our trucks by reprogramming SCT modules with custom parameters set for the specific engine and modifications on your truck. His prices start of at $275 and I have only heard positive reviews. I think he has his own website but I dont know the URL. This is what I plan to do next, I just need to scrape up the cash.

Iv had a jet chip in my truck for a while, even with a blown plenum gasket it did feel like my truck gained quite a bit of power, especially in the top end, I was actually kinda surprised. I cant run it anymore though because I got the hughes air gap and its not close enough to stock. therefore I am selling the chip, so if your interested pm me.
