The best add-on for my truck was my Predator programmer. I only run it at 65hp on my Duramax because I don't need to be buying trannies...but holy crap does it haul butt...and it improved my cruising fuel mileage by 2mpg.

Doug, what made you choose the Predator over the Hypertech and others?

Lots of recommendations from the folks at www.thedieselplace.com Hypertech was the only other one in this price range when I bought mine. Most folks said the Allison "learned" quicker with the Predator. The Predator offers a 120hp tune in their's...Hypertech did not at the time I bought mine. Don't use the 120hp tune if you like your tranny though.

My truck has run the last 4000 miles in 4 weeks with a trailer behind it towing rental equipment while my normal delivery truck is in the shop. I have averaged 13 mph towing either a 6000# Bobcat or 7000# mini-excavator ...bumper tow...running the Predator on the 40hp tow tune. This compares to the 11 I was getting without it.
