All I know about this company is what I have read: Wait4Me Performance from those who have purchased one of his units.

The chip does not help the gasoline engines a lot. And a lot of the chips will mean you have to run premium fuel in order to get much benefit.

I have the 'Superchips' installed on my '04 Yukon XL w/the 6.0 V-8. I must say that it makes a noticeable difference in power when towing which makes for a more enjoyable towing experience & a slight increase in towing mpg but it does require premium fuel which kinda negates any $$ saving advantage. Right now I've re-programmed to stock settings to run on regular gas as winter has set in & the trailer will sit again until spring.

If I were to do it all over I'd opt for the 4:10 gears vs. my 3:73's or the 8.1 engine rather than the 6.0. Hope this helps. jodann
