My friend is wanting me to find a good chip/tuner for his Duramax. What is the best one out there for the Duramax?? Thanks.

Well what do you want it to do? Do you want it to have the ability to run diagnostics? Or just bumb up the power? Is money an issue, or would your friends rather pay a higher price for a better product? What do they want the HP bumped for? Normal everday use or pulls, drags, etc...?

ya if it is a bit of hp he is after any cheap box will do, if he would like gauges with it the edge is positive and offers some more protection, now if he wants more than 120hp, he will need a trany upgrade done first

If he gets a chip/tuner for his Duramax, make sure he gets a Exhaust Temp Guage too. That is very important guage for "better than stock" diesels. If temps get too high (1100°-1300°) too often, start looking for a 4 or 5" turbo down pipe back exhaust.

I am not sure what all he is going to be using it for other than to play around with, isn't that what everyone likes to do with these things. I am already aware he needs gauges and everything else, I am just wondering who makes the best programmer/tuner for a Duramax

Most HP or what do you want for it to be "the best"? If he wants big HP he better save for a trans

Best all around with out having to get new tranny etc. Just basically what is a good one? I know edge is bad for ford along with some other brands. SCT is pretty much the best around for the 6.0 right now just wondering what is equal to this in Duramax

I love my edge not to much to tear stuff up but still a lot of fun and makes towing look easy

The Juice w/ Attitude is one of the best IMO. There are a pile of options out there though.

I've got 3 different options on my truck.. TS Performance MP8, Edge w/ Attitude, Diablo Preditor. I like all three stacked together in any combo.. and they all work well as a stand alone
