best tuner for gas v8 6.0

best tuner for gas v8 6.0

Postby love4chevysilverado [OP] » Feb 20 2011, 6:47am

Alright so ive looked around alot and done a little research and just wanted to gauge what people thought of there tuners, i noticed that alot of you truck guys here have tuners for your truck and just wanted to know if you felt a cost worthy difference in performance and mpg....my truck burns gas like it's going out of style(and I guess it kinda is)...but I'm thinking of getting the Edge CTS gas tuner, and curious to know if it's worth spending 499 big ones on it

I'm actually trying out a bunch of different things like those e3 plugs, they say you can gain about 3 more mpgs with them but my father emphasized to me that it's "snake oil", but he's kinda an old school guy about that stuff(89 blazer w/ a crate 383)

But just wanted to see what anyone here thought of there tuner

Thanks, Max

You'll love the Edge if you get it. They have good tuning now. It will help if you can keep from utilizing the 'extra set of nuts' your truck will get from it.

I have a Superchips Cortex that I use on my 2007 Sierra. I originally bought it for my Pontiac G8 GT, but when I traded in my car for the truck, the tuner carried over.

The tuner has multiple different tunes like, performance, towing, mileage saver xs and I believe a couple more that I can't remember right now. I paid $350 online from marylandspeed dot com. I am sure that no matter tuner you choose you will be happy with it.

If I may make a suggestion though, if you do buy a tuner, do yourself a favor and also buy a cold air intake for your truck as well. It will not only help the truck run better but will also help it get better mileage as well.

I'm sure I've made all my money back on the Hypertech. It' was definately worth every penny.

I have the cortex as well, seems good to me. Also tried the flash paq and bully dog e3. Flash paq is just like the cortex th bully dog was useless!

Diablo Sport inTune made a noticable in how my truck runs with just the 87 octane tune and I am noticing about a mpg more, but this is on my first half tank and really need to run at least 4 tanks through it to see if there is a real change. I'm expecting to see another big improvement when I finally get to tuning it with Lew.
