Default Chips

Ok, i'm trying to learn the ropes.
Is there such a thing as a chip which optimizes performance and fuel economy, WITHOUT reprogramming the ECU? Or without leaving a permanant footprint, necessitating at least a fresh flash program. I'm not sure if i want to get into a handheld programmer unless there are no simpler/cheaper alternatives.

I have not see a "chip" that does anything besides overfueling the engine to make power.

I'd definitely recommend a programmer. The DS Predator can be removed from your truck in a few minutes and leaves no evidence it was ever on your truck.
