i own a 01 lb7, k&n intake, 5 inch exhaust (high flow muffler and no cat), 3"body lift and 33 inch tires, getting a lovely 14 mpg. Looking at getting a chip that will increase milage and if power comes so be it, i only have a stock tranny. Where should i go? i read lots of good things about quadzilla and even more about ppe, and no i dont have the dollars for efi live right now. What chip will help my milage the most?

I have a PPE and like it. However, I am thinking about EFI Live and wich I had just listened to everyone to begin w/ and got that first. Oh well.... Live and learn.

But, my PPE is a great tuner and has increased mileage and power nicely.

I would still go with efi live.. even if you cant afford the whole setup with the v2, you can (for right around the same price as a canned tuner) get a preprogrammed ecm w/ v2 if you arent too concerned with having 5 tunes. just my 0.02 :thumb

None of the canned tuners are even comparable to EFI, but if the moneys not there, it's just not there. That being said, I ran a PPE before I got EFI and really liked it. Nice power gains and way better mileage

You can get EFI for the same or less $$$$ than a PPE IIRC

Please check into this or you will regret it, ask everyone here.

if i recall correctly. ppe econ would be nice. i'd get a EFI pretuned ECM if i had the option.

my edge has been good to me. averaging a little over 16 and have lots of cold short trips and i like the skinny pedal on occasion

clean your MAF, search how to do it. that K and N is oiled and gets crap on the sensor

we have a couple options right now that are actually cheaper than most canned tuner.

we a offering a loaner v2 and you could send us your ecm and we will overnight it back the very next day. both those options are cheaper than purchasing a canned tuner.

shoot me a pm if you would like to see pricing for those bud :drink

you will be MUCH happier with EFILive

ok, i see you guys are crazy for efi live, and yes i plan to be there someday when i have more money, that being said, any of you guys have thoughts on the lower end stuff, ex. quad, diablo, ect... something thats decent for the few hundred bucks it costs?

Please, just price the EFI first, im telling you its worthe the evtra 100$ over a damn predator or any canned tuner!!!

If you arent satisfied I will personally drive to wherever you live, sit down in your driveway and let you, and your friends throw rocks at my nuts

:rof love the dedication!

but seriously, i promise you that you will get that canned tuner, be happy for like a month or so, and then begin regretting it horribly. Happens to everyone that chooses this route.

i have a ppe standard and love it, of coarse it was a toss up between that and a pre programmed ecu w/dsp5 from Nick (duramaxtuner) and decided to go with the ppe for now only because i got a scream of a deal on it ... i really like it and it does what i need .. will probably switch to a dsp5 from Nick when i build my trans tho
