Default 2006 LBZ - Best tuner for Towing

got a 2006 gmc LBZ and would like to get a programmer or box, had the edge on my 2003 and it was great. since they have nothing for the 2006 trucks what is better Diablo, bully dog or hyper pac? what makes the lowest egt's? but good towing power?

I tow a big 5th wheel 15000 lbs!

At this point I'd say the Diablo Predator has produced the best results for me. I am still of the opinion that the best is yet to come...

Default hyper pac

Thanks,
the hyperpac site has a yap about how you can run their unit at all levels for 100% of the manufacturers towing limits where as with my edge unit I had on my 2003 I was limited to level 1. What about the diablo what is safe? level 1?
have you heard when the edge is comming out?

Default Safe setting

I tow a 7000# travel trailer. I had the edge system on level 3 most of the time. I was careful on acceleration from a stop because the tranny pounded pretty hard from first to second if I was under hard pedal. I have now installed a hypertech on stage three. I have seen a good 2/3 mpg increase over the edge but have not towed with it yet.

Those who claim tow safe in all levels just don't make a lot of power. I know a lot of people aren't into or don't need big power, but most other mods make more power, and have tow safe programs that are just as good or better than these units. Hypertech stands as the absolute worst performing unit that I have had on my dyno. It was so bad that I had to run it on a different truck to verify the results. It doesn't drive bad, just nothing to write home about...

The new Edge is out, and I've heard good things so far, but I like to wait a bit and make sure things pan out before actively promoting

I bought a predator and I run it on level one. It seems pretty good so far. Mileage is better when unloaded by a small amount.
not sure if banks makes a unit for the LBZ motor yet?
When is kennedy going to have some dyno results for the LBZ & the "chips"?
Thanks for all the replies.

Thinking about turbo back exhaust, is there anything to worry about? I heard that there is 3 sensors in the cat, what will removing the cat do as far as causing faults?

I have done some dyno work, but have not yet posted them. Not sure if I'll post them or not yet.

Was this ordered thru me? If so, just drop me an email and I'll look the dyno plots up and email them.

For the gauge, the SPA digital is what I'd suggest.
