I am in the market for my next mod... looking for a tuner that is best for me and need some opinions based upon my use/applications.
2008 4x4 and will own this truck till it no longer turns over... I just got a new CAI installed. Every day driver (15mi commute), no racing or off roading at this time. Drive long trips 4-5 times per year and just want more of what everyone is talking about...

thanks all~

UpRev is for the owner who wants to do many mods and needs the flexibility of fine tuning. If you plan on things like just a CAI and exhaust, a simply flash tuner will do the job for less money. BullyDog makes them, Superchips as well as a few others. The main things you want is to remove the WOT restriction and maybe the ability to change timing advance and remove limiters. They all do that and more.

thanks guys... pardon my ignorance, but do any of the tuners have an "economy mode" for long trips?

I don't think there is an economy mode, but the BDGT has a "driving coach" so you can see where your sweet spot is for the best fuel mileage as you're driving...

Hudson, your right but why settle for a "canned tune" when you could have something "personalized" specific for you and your truck??

Mine doesn't. I have the BullyDog Power Pup (I think the BullyDog GT replaced the power pup). I have 3 modes....stock, regular fuel (adds about 12HP) and premium fuel (adds about 23HP) modes. Along with the modes you have the ability to remove throttle restrictions and limiters, change timing and idle speeds. The 08+ does have the instant economy guage to be able to watch and keep your foot out of it but I've never been able to make it help! lol

Oh absolutely. I wasn't putting the UpRev down. But unless you're doing major mods or may do them in the future, the cheaper tuners will do just fine. There's no real personalization if you're just doing a CAI. The ability to fine tune is more for the headers and cams guy. Not everyone has the cash or the need for more than they'll use.

All titan owners know that after several months of surfing this site you get bitten hard by the mod bug and your wallet takes a hard hit. I said the same thing after purchasing my second T... "its staying stock, maybe just an exhaust, etc. etc".Well guess what, I did it again.:bangit: Thanks guys for feeding my habit. I guess I am just prepping "Mikes08" for the future. LOL

Bender thanks for backing me up... this is my second T also, the first was bone stock the 3 years I had it. This one I will put a little $$ into it, nothing too much though. Thanks guys for all the feedback... I will be searching the buy/sell for a BDGT I guess...
