DP Tuner or Elite Diesel, and or Tony Wildman. If your lookin for an OTC, I'd go with an Edge just because it can read codes and give you a rough 1/4 mile time. Got an Edge for sale if you went that route:

What you have done to the truck will make a difference. I see you have her straight piped and an intake. Good Have you done anything else? For instance, the down pipe is a huge restriction on the OBS trucks. It's flat as a pancake. We recommend gauges if you don't have any. With the OBS trucks you are only good for about 80hp with stock injectors.

Here's my suggestions.

You could do just a flash on the PCM.(80hp)
A 3 program chip- stock,tow,80Hp Econo.
Buy an Edge Evo and have Jody put his tunes on it. We have those on order and will be stocking them shortly.

If you have any questons, give us a call. We will be happy to answer all your questions.

Diane

BTW- welcome back. Thank you for your service. Today is the day of rememberance.
