Ok. So I surfed the pages of this forum. I have come to the Conclusion that PPE is the most recommended programmer for my 07 LBZ.

My intent:
I intend on making a programmer the first of my upgrades. The reason I am going for the upgrades are to make it a little faster on the strip. I am not looking to be towing, and this IS my daily driver so I cannot get too carried away. Not only that, I am in the Army so I am broke.

What I am looking at:
PPE Xcellerator---
Additional 225HP max at the flywheel.
4 Power level tunes
Tire size speedometer corrections from Tire Sizes 25.00" to 44.75"
Speed Limiter Adjustable from 40 to 200MPH in 1 MPH increments.
Gear Ratio Adjustable from 2.73 to 5.13
Simple download into the OBD II port under the dash. 1-year warranty
(Yes that was a copy and paste from PPE's website)

My Questions:
I know people have talked about the Hot+2, but not this particular programmer. Have anyone used just the Xcellerator?
What else should I get to go along with this? ie Any guages, or monitors?


Any Recommendations that you may have will be greatly appreciated, and very helpful as well. Also, if you can think of anything I missed please fill me in. I am new into the Diesel scene, and loving it.

Thanks

Since PPE rates their HP at the crank, take 25% off their numbers when figuring rwhp..

Simply put, don't go above +100rwhp on the stock trans. Look into buying a converter and Transgo Jr kit for the trans, then you'll be able to run more power.

IMHO, anyone with a diesel should have EGT and boost gauges at the very minimum, and its absolutely necessary if you plan on modifying anything. A bigger exhaust would help out with a tune, and other than that you dont really need much.

You should think about getting an exhaust system and gauges before the tuner, that way you will know when to back off and could save yourself money in the long run.
