For me ,I went with the Super Chips FlashPaq tuner , besides the power increase, I went for the trans tune, it has the options to increase the shift FIRMNESS in any gear you want up or down, and also the rpm at which it shifts, when I bought this truck I hated the way 1st into 2nd felt, kinda like sliding into gear, with the T/M turned down on the shifts it hits hard on that shift, when I take it to the dealer I remove it and them remember what I didnt like about the shifts....I always cant wait to put it back in.

+1 for the Diablosport with Hemifever tune. But I can't comment on any others, as this is the only tuner I have ever used. The trinity has many awesome features and you can monitor anything you could think of on it.
