Well i just found out from Superchips that they do not make a programmer for my year truck, they have discontinued them, so is hypertech worth buying? I've heard horror stories and i've heard good things .................which is it? Lets hear from people who actually got them.......

That is rear wheel horsepower on the dyno, a stock 99 has 180 flywheel horsepower, stock with no mods would probably put out about 150 hp or so, maybe a little less being an automatic but still 164rwhp isn't too bad, although he does have quite a few mods.

I am probably up to about 175rwhp now...a stock 4.3 auto on this dyno put out 135rwhp!! The best mods I did were the roller rockers, jba's and probably the pulleys!!
But the best upgrade of all was n2o!! I will be pushing 275rwhp once I get the bugs worked out!!

i guess my only options are the hppIII or a custom burn, the hypertech may be the best option since i don't have that many engine mods ya think??

yes you would do a custom flash last...and the only way to get rid of torque management is with a custom flash!! Go with the programmer it will get you started!!
