What is the Best Chip/Programer for a 2010?

I am looking for the best mileage/power ratio, what works?
What is your personal preference or what do you think is the best.
Thanks in advance
Brad

The H&S is what I was thinking of doing, just making sure no one has had any major issues so far.
Thanks

nope, neither will steer you wrong, personally I prefer the fine(r) tuning available with the smarty however on a stock truck it comes down to preference... if you want the entire tuning and gauges all at once thing the H&S is the way to go

H&S gets my vote, you cant beat gauges and tuning all in one.

You can't beat the value of the Mini Maxx or the Black Maxx with the built in gauges and the safety defueling settings. Their customer and dealer support is awesome!

Everyone should be at about the same price. We sold our last one a few days ago and they are currently on national backorder.

You may consider a MiniMaxx, some like them better because of the better screen resolution. However they are quite a bit smaller.

Oh my gosh. A which tuner thread to use that has no fights or arguments. I must have died and gone to heaven. To the OP you can't go wrong with either the Smarty or H&S they both are great companies.
The best advice I can give is do your home work and decide which one fits your budget and goals. It is a personal decision from there.
