motor tuner or chip

What type of tuner for my 2005 2500 4x4,suburban would yall recomend. I have a 6.0 liter motor, and 373 gears, found changing gears would be very costly.

Save your money as I believe that tuners on gas engine accomplish minimal improvements...certainly not in the same area of changing the gear set to 4.10's. Tuners on diesel engines are a whole other story.

Is the place that tuned my 6.0 Sierra.
2 mpg gain driving 80 miles a day hand calulated.
Thats 50 miles more each tank.
200 miles additional per month.

Firmer, later shift points.

Firm believer.

Hp gain ? Unless its dynoed it a guess to actual gain.

I have my stock ecm if you'd like to purchase it so you can send it in to be tuned that way you can keep your oem ecm.
And better yet you dont have to wait days while you send yours in to be tuned and sent back.
Pm me if your interested.
