If you want something on the fly go with a Comp and Gauges or a Juice w/ Attitude...if you just want a programmer then DEFFINITLY go with a SMARTY!!! They are the ****!

How much power do you want? and do you wanna change it on the fly?

If you don't have gauges yet go with a edge juice with attitude and it will save you money. it's adj on the fly and you have 4 gauges you can watch at a time, but also set alarms for low fuel pressure, high speed, egt etc. I really like mine. Or if you have gauges go with the comp. You will be bored with the smart real quick

01 quad cab 4x4, edge drag comp, 4" exhaust, fass 150, 250 ddps, Jefferson State compounds 683hp so vp 11.91. AMSOIL front to rear. now back to stock 95 fummins in the works

Regardless of which you put on, you will need to upgrade the lift pump, and probably the clutch as well.

I dont like the Juice gauges NEAR as much as Machanical ones...and you wont get bored w/ the Smarty that quick...its a fun little tuner...
