hahahaha get a faster truck? no but really upgrade motor bore it hone it port polish heads and intake bigger throttle body bigger cam long tube hearders free flowing exhaust underdrive pullies efan,turbo,nos the last two were if you want to go crazy. you already have a bigger motor than us 3.slow guys and to answer your question ddont waste time nor money on those chips they can only do some much and you more than likely wont see much from your money you put in. oh and i forgot rear axle gears sum 4.10s would give ya a kick on the start and some roller rockers

look for a programmer it will allow for some tuning and it will also allow you to remove your speed limiter and rev limiter. if you find anything pm me im currently in the market for a good programmer.

you dont need a programmer to turn off your rev limiter and speed limiter you need to find someone with a tuner. a programer is something you buy and plug in to your truck and you pull your stock ecu programs out and it will install a new one and it has to be written for YOUR TRUCK AND YOUR TRUCK ALONE. a tuner is where you can go in and adjust things like air/fuel ratio when and how fast your trans changes gears if you have an automatic and like yall want to take out the speed limiter and rev limiter. but my question is why do you want to take the chance of burning up a motor cause you took the rev limiter off

its cool man you got to learn sometime and you never will if no one ever tells ya. and my biggest guess would be xcal,diablo,sct. i know that xcal and sct you can call them and they will add what type vehicle you have nad what you are trying to get out of it

you can not get roller rockers none made.
as for the chip, yes it will work and be nice, you can do better but youcan NOT get a programmer you need to be ODBII for that (96+).

headers yes catback exhaust will also work get. I have a bunch of parts PM me if you need anything
