I just got the programmer III for a 03 with the 5.3 and was wondering if I need the new thermostat, it says that it works better with it but can I use the stock one???
Thanks

Its very easy, it walks you through it while its plugged in, as for the thermostat, my friend baught the hypertech thermostat and not only did he not see a performance upgrade....his truck ran at the same temperature, you are perfectly fine with the stock thermo.

Where did you get it at? What setup are you running where you "need" it before you leave? Just wondering.
