Plenty of choices... It will come down to how much much power you're looking to gain and how much money you want to spend. Edge products have been around forever. I have the Edge EZ which is a mere 65 hp / 180 tq gain at the wheels. And some people would consider that as a waste of time... The extreme level of tune-ability and maximum power is going to be the Quad Adrenaline.

Dont overlook the advantages of different injectors either.

I've had a Smarty programmer (60hp) and a TST Comp (180 hp wiretap) together for at least a decade and both have been problem free and run very strong together.

All depends on how much money you want to spend, how much power you're looking for and what features you desire. Quadzilla starts at $600, Smarty is $650, TST is $650, don't remember what the Edge products cost. There are others out there too.

02 2500 4X4, reg cab shorty, 3.55, Smarty/TST, 75 over 62, 150 inj, 5" exh, 12" lift on 20" 34's, Goerend billet triple disc auto, Yukon hub/bearing kit

I've run the Edge EZ, Edge Comp and currently run an Edge Juice CTS tuner. They are all good tuners depending on your budget and power goals. I used a Smarty S03 for a bit as well. If you have the time and skill, the Quadzilla Adrenaline will net you the best results. It allows you to tweak almost every aspect of the VP44 pump. I ran one for awhile but I was having a bunch of connection issues and have very little patience for mechanical things that don't work as they should. I had lots of help in trying to figure it out but in the end I gave up and went back to an Edge. That being said, I certainly don't try to talk people out of trying it. If my current Edge ever craps out, I may try it again someday.

2001 Ram QC SLT 4X4 5.9/AT(Built) BHAF, Pusher, FASS150, 4" DP, 5" Aussies, built transmission, GS gauges, steering brace, EJWA-CTS2, BD Stealth cover, turnbuckle mod, Fire Truck horn, 4th gen tow mirrors, 3rd gen brakes, switchbacks, high/3cyl switch.
