Why not both?


That all depends on what your are trying to accomplish. Have you done any work on it yet?


Tennisshoes all i have done to it so far is a cat back exhuast single exit with 2.5 diameter pipes but im trying to get up the horse power and torque. I can't do both because I only have the money for one or the other at the moment


Man I'd went with 3 inch, that's what I did on my GMC. So if your undecided I would go with the reprogrammer, and get a brand name one like BullyDog or SuperChips.


I was thinking about a superpaq and just so everyone knows im working with the 5.9 360 gas.


i would also suggest going with a superpaq like Superchips.
