I have an early '99 with the smaller injectors and turbo and the Edge Evolution work really well on my truck. I currently have an F5 chip on order from DP-Tuner that will replace the Evolution tune as a buddy of my bought my tuner. I mostly used the 80HP setting ans saw an average of a 3MPG increase in fuel economy, but I also do not drive my truck hard either. The 100HP setting is really nice, but the EGT's run kind of hot while towing and I didn't feel like spending 10 minutes to switch the tune everytime I had to tow something so I just left in on 80 all the time.

If he is dead set on a programer then a custom tuned SCT X-Cal 2 is the way to go. Most of us like chips better though. You can switch programs on the fly.
