what is the best chip for a cummins? i thought it was the edge but some people have told me that the bullydog adds more horsepower and torque. what about the banks tuner or the quadzilla? just want to get the most bang for my buck.

I run an ATS E-Tuner and it seemes to work great. My dad previously ran an Edge but he says the difference between the two is substancial.

i would have to say the best that i have seen on the market to use with a stock cummins is the smarty. Don't buy the edge it is going to give u problems in about a year. i bout one thinking it would be great well its not. the smarty will do everthing u need it to and makes awsome power. i have a buddy that has it on his 05 and loves it. he has just that and a straight pipe. he pulled with it and beat everyone at the pull. so hands down go with the smarty.

well it all started about 4 months after i got it. it threw a check engine light and i went and got it checked. The code was and injector code. well i knew it wasn't the injector i just put brand new ones in. It was a shortage high or low on the back 3 cyclinders. well i called edge after the 3rd time it did it. i told them what happens and they said they would look at it. so i told them to put stage 6 on also while they had it. Just so u know this is and 03 ram 2500 crew cab long box. When i got it back from them i put it on and it worked great up to stage 5. on stage five when u get on it hard it shut the motor down and went into lip mod. my buddy was behind me and only saw a big cloud of smoke then he said it sounded like it was running on 2 cyclinders. so it through a check engine light of course. i checked it and it was a o2 sensor saying it was getting to much fuel and over boost condition. i called them and told them the problem. they said i needed i boost builder. so i got one and it didn't work. sent it back and they worked it again. got it back and it through the same code as the very first code except it was on the front cyclinders. sent it back in and told them i want a hole new one. they r sending me a hole new kit with the newest version for my model. i have heard people say it is cause i have the first year common rail. well everyone that i run into that is has been in diesels for a while have all had problems with edge after a year or year and a half. they all say there products r junk. well after what i have gone through i a agree. The other pep have chevys and dodges to. So its not just cause my in the first year for the common rail. any other ?s email me at grueny0085@yahoo.com i also have a couple of pics of my truck. thanks

I feel bad for you and your right they should stand behid anything they sell weather its tires or programmers my buddy tried predator and it would not work on his truck after a month he got a smarty out of the deal.  hopefully mine will not let me down.

I know there is lots of info on best chip, however, can anyone give experience with milage only. I have 2006 dodge 5.9. I installed air intake and changed exhaust(catback) I now want the tuner. I'm looking at the Superchips 3805. Again, I,m not interested in burning tires, milage only for RV towing and no RV.
