hey, i have a stock 2006 duramax. i am going to put 7" stacks on my truck. what i want is a chip that will give me a distinct power upgrade for towing, and just crusin around. also i want to have a decent amount of smoke blowing out of my stacks. lastly the most important thing is that i need a chip that is transmission safe and will not damage my allison transmission. Thanks.

oh man, here we go.

Just to warn you, this is probably in the top 5 most asked questions here.

EFILive/PPE/Edge/Banks/Quad just to name a few. There will be a lot of "this worked well for me," and "whatever you do, don't use ______ ".

high hp levels=smoke...high hp also=dead stock trans. put in the transgo jr shift kit and buy a quad s2. you'll get exactly what your looking for.

the ppe is a great one if your not willing to spend on efi live. just dont set the power too high.
i run mine at 220 on a stock tranny. its been 6k miles since and im pretty lead footed...
nothing wrong so far. most say not to run it that high though.

EFILive Web Site

it's the most customizable, tweakable tuning software out for any of the big 3 diesel trucks. (it also does many other GM vehicles)

Basically professional programmers (vendors on this site and others) take your stock computer program, tweak it, email it back to you, and you upload it to your truck.

I use Nick @ Online Catalog | DURAMAXTUNER.COM. It's pretty advanced, and it might be "more tuner than you need." but it does allow for changes to it down the road, whereas a "canned" or unchangeable tuner such as PPE/Banks/Edge does not.

Smoke isn't an indication of more power.

your PPE has a higher HP rating than the Juice, so you should beat him.

See, I told you this was how your thread was going to pan out. :D

im not saying that, im just saying the ppe smokes more because he is getting stacks, i personally think stacks are dumb unless it dumps alot. even if it doesnt mean anything good. im just saying since he asked about it blowing some smoke. the edge i havent seen too much smoke from..
