Efi live from a reputable tuner is a much better option.

Moved your thread into the tuning section.

You sound like you dont know much about tuning, so you would be much better off with an easy-to-use handheld of some kind to get started instead of delving into custom tuning. That Edge you mentioned would be a good starter box. Just make sure its compatible with the emissions on your truck.

The guys here more-or-less will always recommend efilive simply b/c most all of us are hotrodders and we all have some (or a lot) of experience with that platform.

If/when you decide you want to delete the bs, or simply want more performance....thats where a custom efilive tune comes into play and is the best option.
"BBT" -- 2003 GMC CC/SB 4x4 12.14@111.15
"The Cruzer" -- 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel -- the fun little DD
"Kleshay" -- 2000 C5 Corvette -- the toy
"The Bigger Boat" -- 2011 Workhorse P700 - 6.0LS/Allison - what I drive at work

Two wrongs dont make a right, but three rights do make a left.

Reality is a matter of perspective.

This forum isn't for the weak of heart.....or wallet.

what's your location? Someone might be local and can explain and/or show you what a good tune does to their truck before you buy something. I've done that for a bunch of dmax owners nearby and made a few friends.
