the best stack is no stack. If you want on the fly adjustability that is second to none on the LLY, use EFILive with DSP5 switch. You will have 5 tunes at your disposal, all of which are changeable for customization.

He is 100% correct. Efi is offering the quickest most adjustable tunes for all trucks, hands down. PPE and others do make some high hp tunes, but Efi is hands down the fastest.

EFI is the only way to go if you want great tunes you can change on the fly. Stacking on a PPE tuner is a waste of time and money if you ask me. I really like my PPE and plan on sticking with it 'cuz it has me where I want to be. I can't afford a bottom to top rebuild right now, and I'm not sure if I'll ever want to go above 550 hp in my current pickup.

How long have you been running the PPE? and what setting do you run it on around town? How long you can run that big of a tune on a daily driver with stock internals?

i ran a Van Aaken hot box with my PPE HOT ET+2 and i ran against a EFILived duramax but he never could beat me but with the right fuel system and tuning the EFILive is the best..oh did i mention you need fuel and lots of it to support the Van and PPE stack...
