Exhaust, Power, Trans in that order. Just be ready to do the trans if you want to play with power. The Edge worked very well on my truck. A lot of people have had good results with the Predator. If you want to get serious then PPE/VA or EFILive.

Predator or Hypertech work well on these trucks. Exhaust and intake will help but not necessary.

so_clean_HD,

It's a relabeled Bully Dog product. Good stuff but most likely you can get the Bully Dog from someone like us for a lot less.

Being an 05 I dont think that the CEL will come on.

He means that accel took a bull dog product and put their name on it.

Stick with the known good names: PPE, TTS, VA, Diablo sport pred., EDGE, Quad

chevy05 was luckier than I. 1st thing I did was lost my kittie but I got codes. If you do get f/s if not keep going. You should probably only run low tunes until you do get an exhaust.
