Yes, you won't regret it, it shifts better, more responsive and you can change things any time

Before installing the CAI and exhaust, I used the programmer. First thing you will notice is the shifting. The pressure is changed and so you shift up faster.
Once adding Volent CAI with thottle spacer and Magnaflow cat-back the shifting sound went away and the programmer basically is just giving me active readings.

I do run 91-92 octane at proformance level 3 unless towing my travel trailer at level 2.

Yes it's worth it.
I'm modding my truck to get the most out of it.
Most automakers give you the bare basics, such as exhaust that rust etc..
It's up to you to go for aftermarket that fits your taste.
Make the most of it.

Any ball park on what it costs to send in the evolution to have it programmed with custom gryphon tunes? I already have the edge programmer, but with the Flowmaster exaust and K&N CAI... Im thinking custom tunes is the way to go.
