Definatly get the DP tuner!! You can get 1 to 16 positions(well for a price)!
And for the smoke, DEFINATLY get the 140hp Aggresive which is also called the 140 SMOKE!

ok, so ive figured out what im gonna get.. from everyone ive talked to Wildman is the way to go so thats the route im taking as well.. but i was wondering, with the 140 smoke setting, how much smoke will i get? and will i have any problem with egts in this setting. i have gauges but am just wondering before i am sure of the settings i want.

you'll get quite a bit of smoke for still having stock injectors. yes ur egts will increase. gauges are a must with a chip.
