its not worth the cash. there are at least 20 posts asking the same thing no they are not unless its a 1996 odb2 then there are a few semi ok performance deals but still not very limited.

lol my first post says its a 96 in 3 places and that its an OBDII but yes iv tried looking into the ones iv found and they all say 14-19 hp increase which sounds reasonable but of course that number is always higher then what you really get.

You're looking for stuff for the black sheep of our trucks. Most places don't make anything for the one year only '96 OBDII. That first one won't work on your '96 if it works on '87-'95 but that second one looks like the holy grail.
