I was going to suggest the same thing. Mike Butler is his name and he's an SCT dealer/programmer and has worked extensively with the V-10's. If you want to get into some serious tuning talk to another guy named Eric Brooks at http://brooksspeed.com/he's done alot of custom tuning and has set me up with tunes for my truck.

Ken if you are interested in pursuing a Bullydog, give them a call right at factory. That is what I did before buying. I sure got a lot more info from them then I was able to get from any of the dealers. All they knew was -- sell and install.
As far as a program for the gas jobs, I was under the assumption they had one now????
If you do check, let me know what they say, if you would.

You all have to take in to consideration, that Lloyd's Bully and his Dog are the names of his plow horses that he uses too boost his pulling power with that under powered Chevrolet

If my truck had 1100 Hp it would still be underpowerd We have a 2001 Chevy Extrem Blazer, I want to put a twin turbo v8 in it one of these day, Itwill never happen but I think it would be neat to have 800hp in a daily driver

Bullydog has a program I can download for free. They call it "Crazy Larry" and rightfully so I think. It would give me an additional 225 HP!!
I have talked with a factory rep about it. I just can't bring myself to do that to my truck. I don't know how well the drive line would like it or how long it would be before I dropped a U joint. Plus I don't know what useful purpose it would serve. Besides that, when I have on occasion put it the :Extreme" mode, the Allison has a hard time keeping up shifting.

Wanted to give a thankyou for all your educated responces ans also at the same time give you an update. I bought a performance chip last week and installed the program. I for the life of me cant remember the name of it. I did find that it seemed to make a difference in acceleration somewhat. I also bought a cold air intake through a local speed shop and it was installed today. Unfortuniatly I am not as handy and had to have it installed by my mechanic. I will see later if that makes any kind of difference. I think that the true test will be if I have any performance changes in the way it tows. Oh well only time will tell. Again, thank you to all my camping friends out there.
