mgrice1981, welcome to the site. I see you live right around the corner from me. I live in Florence. I am running the Superchip Tuner, but I am planning on upgrading to a DP 6 position pretty soon. You definately need gauges, and then add the tunes. I couldn't believe the difference the Superchip made on my truck, and the DP tuner smokes the Superchip. So saying that if I were you I would save the money and go straight to the DP tuner instead of doing like me buying one and then a little while later changing to the real Tunes.
