Programmers, Chips, more power anything!!

Alright, I have a buddy with a 2005 Chevy Duramax, He just wants something on it that is good, adds milage and can be pretty aggressive when needed or wanted. Mostly he wants it like his last truck was, he had a 2001 chevy duramax with a juice without attitude, and there was some kind of programmer left in it,.:shrug:

But anyways, what would yall suggest for him to get. He likes the idea of bein able to change settings on the go. I wasn't sure which way to send him, so thought i might ask here.

Thanks for any info in advance.:thanks:

I am slow to push the Edge lately with the quality issues they have been having, but he might want to get ahold of an EFI tune with a DSP 5 switch, that will allow for 5 different tunes that can be changed with just the flick of the knob.

I agree with Eric, its sad about Edge because they were like pioneers in the business, but I see no reason to complicate the setup with a harness box of any kind when software tuners can do as much if not more than the boxes.

Easiest, quickest, and less complex answer is to have him get any of the many hand held OBD-II port plug in tuners, or for the ultimate but complex advanced user go with EFI Live.
