Transmission Upgrade Inevitable?

It seems that no matter what electronic tuning I do for my truck, that it will not be very much fun without a trannie upgrade. I just purchased efi live and along with it came a 80hp tune (thanks Killerbee). It is bad*****, however after all of the reading on these forums, I guess I am too gunshy to really stand on it. I dont plan on going berzerk with the truck, but I would enjoy emabarassing a yuppie in his bmw with his hot barbie next to him once in a while. Ya know, just a little soot and smoke never hurt anyone. .. Anyways, if anyone has any input on this, that would be awesome.

I can def. say that I am addicted. But at the same time I am still shy to hammer it down for long periods. Anyone want to donate to my Suncoast Fund? I accept paypal!

It always starts with "it's for better fuel economy and a bit of power". Then it turns into a "Field of dreams" kinda feeling. You don't why you're doing it, but you're not gonna stop.

It was "just an intake, exhaus,t and maybe some wheels" for me....
