I have an all stock, just kn air intake, 2000 5.9L auto 4x4 with 162000 miles on it. Im only gettin about 15 mpg and i dont drive like a bat outta hell. I want something mainly for power but also to raise those mpgs for drivin to school everyday. I was thinkin i wanted edge juice w/atitude but im not sure. Any advice???

get a lift pump first, no chip tell you got an after market lift pump for you'll cook you VP. An since you have an auto I would put an thing over 65hp chip unless you plan to build the trans

i would say go with the Quadzilla XZT or the Edge EZ or the Diablo Power Puck... the EZ an the XZT are 65hp an the power puck is 50hp. But quadzilla offers alot of downloads off there site to make the XZT do more then just add power. An the Ez is a very good box too. Ive never been around a power puck but iam sure there just as good... But like I said get your self a lift pump. An you an run a bigger chip with the stock trans but you have to be care how you drive it.

The comp an the juice are the same but you have alot more ability to control the power, an to monitor you motor vitals.

Yeah I know what you mean, iam only 17 an I like my smoke too, but as far as the EZ an smoke pry not that much but search around an read on how to do a smoke switch after you install any kind of chip you an wire up a switch that makes the computer in the truck think its at full boost an it will give you all kinds of smoke.... most guys on here will tell you it now recommended but it can be done, an I have a lot of friends that run smoke switch with no problems. I run the XZT on my truck an it really lives up the truck from stock...

Yes the chip comes with a 3 way switch so you can run either stock 30hp or 65hp an I run my on 65 all the time... And as far as the MPG it all depends on how you drive it, I did notice around 1-2 mpg but I have a heavy foot...

Have some self control and only run it on the lower settings. It will just cost you more money to buy an xzt to just turn around a few months later and buy something else.
