well ppe would be a better option u can get around 485 range and efi when u get that some people give u a free tune but u still need the laptop and time to learn the system but with the stock turbo u can get some more power out of efi but it takes time to learn. what are ur plans for the truck down the road ? like bigger turbo etc

Well, the are similar but EFI is the way to go, you can change EVERY parameter in the truck, and you can buy premade tunes.

ppe if you would rather not do the tuning yourself and if you only plan on 450RWHP but if you want the best go with efi live..

I've never run a PPE but EFI is awsome. Need a built trans if you plan to play much cause it's capable of 500-525rwhp with no more than a lift pump and exhaust.

EFI will occupy more of your time, but I have had no complaints from anyone about this. You end up learning so much about your truck, for some more than they wanted to know.
