For performance and better MPG, I've had great success with my Smarty Jr. I don't race or anything, but it really woke up the truck, made it more fun to drive, 3+ extra MPG. If you want lots of performace, and want to invest in guages, etc., the Smarty Sr may be best. Depends what you want and how much $ you want to spend. HP is epensive! Just my .02 worth. Good luck

Got 3 settings on the Jr. 40, 70, and 100 hp increase. Then it has some other fine tuning you can do. The Smarty Sr. goes up way over 200 hp increase. Pretty hard on the tranny I hear at those higher hp settings. Mine has more power than I will ever need. Its quick like a gas burner, tons of torque, not much smoke. And they say it won't hurt the truck if you don't rawhide it and abuse it. Look up Bob Wagner on here, he is the Smarty guru, owns the company I think. Great guy, I bought mine directly from him and had it in 2 days, free shipping. Had a little trouble getting it downloaded, so I called him. Got him right on the phone, walked me through it, and no trouble since. It was my error. Have a good day, good luck.

Best bang for your buck is a Diablo Sport Predator. Used.
Another cheap option is a Bully Dog Triple Dog. You can start small and once built work up to Crazy Larry.
But if going all out and willing to spend double the money, the Smarty is a great tuner.

I've had all three. On my 06 with my current mods, Crazy Larry is my tune of choice. But I've kept the Smarty. Gotta try it once I add a bigger turbo and bigger injectors.

smarty sr, and never look back, does it all . the jr is good to..but if you get the senior you can grow with it, and it has more options, and 230 rear wheel hp to gain, with proper mods.
