2 things to do first

GET GAUGES. At least transmission temp, boost and egt.

GET SOME TRANSMISSION UPGRADES

I am selling my 01 and I'm probably going to go auto.

I plan on doing a converter(Goerend triple disc and valvebody). Possibly doing a flex plate too.

99% of people say stock auto doesn't hold up to a lot of added power.

SMARTY seems to get great reviews. This is probably going to be my choice.

PPE and Diablo get descent reviews.

TST, EDGE and Quadzilla are all descent products

I've tried Quad X2, XZT, Diablo Puck, Predator & Smarty. Smarty get's my vote hands down. It's pricey but you get what you pay for!

I've tried diablo and it ran like crap, plus there service is absolutely terrible. Browse through their forums to get a take on customer satisfaction. I would opt for the smarty junior if your planning on keeping your tranny stock.

I love my Smarty (haven't used anything else, so can't help you there) I put 60 and 90 hp on my stock dodge for maybe 6 months or more, got a friend to put in a Goerand TC, shift kit, billet flex plate, Hymagtec double trans pan, etc. then went to the 130 added hp, and loved it. Next i have to install my twins (thanks Nathan) then I'll go to #9 and or TNT or Revolution (with springs of course) hoping over 500 hp, we'll see.
Cant speak higher for Smarty, good people too.

smarty- ability to reprgram ecm for changes in tire size, reads and clears dtc codes, can download various software formats for your truck depending on mods.
