Talking Best Programmer for 4.7L

Can I get some recommendations on which power programmer to buy for my 4.7L? I have a Volante Cold Air Intake and Flowmaster Cat-back exhaust. That is the only power mods I have done, and looking for the best programmer to give me a little better performance and better economy.

The superchips and the diablo sport are probably the best. I love my superchips flashpaq, but diablo would be good if you need custom tuning.

I have the diablosport predator on mine and I love it! Gave me a good bit of low end power with an increase in MPG, when I stay off the throttle lol.

I agree with the DSP but you might want to get the newer version since they have it out now. The DS "In-Tune".

I forgot about the SCT, heard good things about that as well.

I've been wanting to try the diablo and the SCT to compare against my SC, but don't want to buy them all. Anyone in the Orlando area with those products want to meet up maybe at orlando speedworld sometime and test each others tuners out?

It seems as though the DSP doesn't work with the 2002 4.7 would that be correct? and in that case would the flashpaq be the best alternative?
