Yeah just enough power to give you some more fuel mileage, and a extra kick in the pants. And it shouldn't be too hard on your trans/clutch.

The trans was what I was worried about.
From what U say it seems that's what I want.

No problem. Unless the trans has really been beat to death, it should be able to hold around 100hp over stock. And the EZ add's appox. 65hp.

I just had the pressure govenor soloid go out and replaced along w/ the filter and fluid changed and the bands adjusted.
The tranny guy said it looks alright for a 100k .
So I guess I'll order one soon .
Any place to get a good price?

Do you mean a performance replacement? If it were me I'd go Dave Goerend. Builds a strong trans for a price that won't kill you, and offers one of the best warranties on the market. 3yr/100,000mile warranty on the trans itself, and a lifetime warranty on the tq converter.

No not performance.
Just a bad solonoid that got replaced.
It tells the tranny how much pressure to put through it.
When it went bad I had to maually shift the trans.
Luckaly there was no damage.

this works great in my dads truck. very happy with it. but if your looking to replace your tranny later and go for more power you may want to think about just getting a bigger box and using it on the low setting for now so you can turn it up later.. thats just my 2 cents though. once you get a lil you want more and more and more

That, or you could look into a programmer...they'd both be 65 or 70 horse and neither adjusts on the fly. You may find a programmer cheaper...
