honestly I love PPE and I own one....but this crap is addicting as hell. Once you have one you will want to upgrade and see what you can do.

I bought the standard PPE....from a bullydog powerpup(worst investment ever BTW)....but now I wish I would have spent the extra cash to buy the hot+2 or EFI...

But not saying my situation applies to everyone....but its a 50/50 that people want to apply more than stock components want to.

I bought a quad stealth 2 for 250 from an individual on ebay. Lots of guys have them on this site and they seem to really be pleased for the quality and price.

honestly I broke mine on the powerpup....on level 2-3....but that tuning was crap though...

personally if I had to do it again....I would start at the weak points....mainly the stock tranny.

Granted its a big investment, but once its done....the sky is the limit!!

I agree....but for a quick tuner I can keep in my truck its awesome....but with a DSP5....its completed....I would never have to plug anything in or take any fuses out.

damn you guys....now I want EFI even more.

Well I went with a Suncoast full tranny....sounds dirty I know. I did the Suncoast stage 4 with a 1056 converter. Its pretty amazing.

but now they have the gmax kit....pretty sure its almost the same...but not 100% on that one....someone smarter than me will answer, I'm sure.

But I was deploying and didnt have time to screw with the install...If you aren't mechanically inclined, just buy a full tranny and have someone install it. Then they ship your core back...easy peesy chicken squeezey....something like that anyway.
