Default What programmer to get?

I am wanting to program my truck... Should I get an SCT or a Superchips? The superchips is about 100 bucks less and the guy from rogue performance says the sct will only give me about 8hp and the superchips claim is 14

I have the Super Chips I like it, reprogram for tire & gear changes, trans shift points (automatic) eliminate top speed limiter, better fuel mileage. Super easy to install.

Did you find much difference in overall power or MPG... Does it shift much smoother now that the shift points are changed?

Look into a DiabloSport tuner. I have been hearing alot of good things about them.

As far as power gains, every body claims they have the best, but it really comes down to who writes the tunes. The people I got my SCT programs from dyno'd a 14 hp gain on the 2.3 D-tech with their tunes, but unfortunately, they don't do Rangers anymore.
