Chipping doesn't exist for 96+ obdII trucks. You either use programmers (ok way but not great) or have your PCM tuned (preferred way).
BTW this is a totally generic question. What you do drive? What are your expectations? What do you want?

Ok, just found their website. Looks like it mainly adjusts timing & air fuel. A PCM tune, say from BlackBear, would adjust much more than air/fuel but reduce or eliminate torque management, change shift points, & can take into consideration other upgrades like exhaust, intakes, cams, torque converters, etc to improve driveability & power.
For the low price it might be ok but probably won't yield you anything close to their claims...at least on our trucks. Honestly, you'd be better off saving your pennies for a tune on 96+ trucks...not a 'chip'...

Was reading the article on these chips.. How come a GF chip doesn't void the warranty but a tune from nelson does. I am looking for the mileage the GF chip speculates but something that doesn't void the warranty!
