With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Welcome to TW!

Stay away from any "Chips" that claim HP gains.

the reason a chip won't work, is because our trucks have a locked ecu, meaning you can't tap into it and change the way the truck works.

Welcome, man! The companies who sell those "performance chips" just have good marketing teams. They're no good though...

Oh boy... Prepare for a lashing on here. They're scams. They don't do anything for your truck. Don't waste your money.

URD MAF calibrator, APR X-1 and Unichip piggyback actually work. They are all piggyback computers though.

Why get a chip when you can get this?!? http://ezfuelsaver.com/ more power, better fuel efficiency, better acceleration, longer battery life, and all you have to do here is plug it into your cigarette lighter, hell you have 2 power outlets, buy 2 for DOUBLE the POWER!!!
PS: you can get it for less than 5 dollars shipped here, if you're dumb enough to buy it http://www.dealextreme.com/p/neo-soc...0-30-12v-52013
