Going to be putting in a mild chip, cold air intake and exhaust. Nothing crazy jus trying to get the truck to breather better.

On the last trip north we had two diesel’s towing trailers. Mine stock was getting 24L to 100km while the truck with the above mods was getting around 14L per 100km

Where would you guys recommend getting the work done? Was going to get “Edge with attitude” chip. Is there something better?

i like the edge w attitude myself and the heads up display is nice so u don't have to add a bunch of other gauges at more expense egt's and boost and a must have to play with out hurting things ... aem make a really nice cold air and magnaflow has a stainless muffler kit thats very reasonable for what you get all avilible locally

what i would of done if mine didn't come with it all allready ...

I say get a proper intake made. Lots of CAI's for trucks are not really intended for the application, theyre just made to fit a whole bunch of different trucks.

Id use the smarty programmer if your truck is a dodge its got

CaTCHER software's inside

Ten different performance levels

Fastest download in the industry, a typical ECM update takes
less than two minutes

ABS tire height updates in just seconds

Not traceable in the stock setting. Smarty leaves no footprint

Cold weather 3 Cylinder High Idle is enabled in all softwares

Reads Diagnostic Trouble Codes in plain text

No tools required, no fuses to pull

USB built in for simple updates

Most complete keyboard in the industry

Reliable, it works off your OEM hardware

Programmable Speed Limiter from 25 to 250 mph
Its also stackable so if you want to add another chip on top of it for insane horse power
check it out http://www.madselectronics.com/Smarty03.html
