SCT and Edge/Gryphon are the most common programmers I read about on here and other sites.

Bolt on mods would be an CAI (you're better off doing the gotts mod if you ask me though), headers, underdrive pullies, e-fan install, and a tuner. In my opinion though, a tuner should be the last thing you do, you wouldnt wanna have to change your tune every time you do a few things to the truck. But i've never use a handheld, i've always worked with dyno stuff.

Heads and cams are cool and all, but from the research most of us have done, its not worth spending 3-6 grand on that stuff to gain MAYBE 100rwhp. Or maybe thats just me.lol But if you wanted, trickflow makes some good stuff!

Oh, and FordsSuck, go watch some gay **** or some **** like that, since you obviously have something permanently shoved up your ***, and that seems to be more up your alley more so than ANY kind of vehicle. With an IQ (Intelligence Quotient, just in case you didnt know what that stood for) as "high" as yours, you'd be lucky to make it through an oil change on your Smart Car without f'ing something up. Stay off Ls1tech too if you dont mind.

Didn't mean to get off on a tangent, but this crap right here gets under my skin like no other.
