Chips and CAI's are nothing more than placebos and a waste of money. IMO of course.
I respectively disagree.
I re flashed my 05 6.0 silverado and observed and calculated a 1-2 mpg average gain in towing and a 2-3 mpg average in unloaded scenerios.
That's a big gain imo.
Figure this, unloaded @ 2 mpg over 26 gallons.
That's roughly 50 more miles per tank and at a tank of gas a week over 52 weeks I think the math speaks for itself.
Will you see or feel a seat of the pants feel like a diesel?
No not likely.
IMO it's worth it.
I pulled a hill in Guttenberg Iowa before and after with my 14,000 lb trailer and 2 as able to achieve 5 mph difference tune vs not flat out wot both pulls.
Anybody ever been to Guttenberg Iowa from the south knows the hill.
