    i have a 99 tahoe 2 door and i have the hypertech power programer in that. i love it except for paying for super gas (u don't have to set it for super just i do) u have a 2002 so u will new a programer ur truck has OBDII and does not use a chip. i have never really heard of jet chip either, people i talked to loved the hypertech or hated it for some odd reason. i like it a lot better throttle responce :-)

    Can you adjust for larger tires with the OBDII programer?

    I like my Hypertech too. Very easy to use, and better yet as I make changes on my truck I can go back and change the programming, ie. I am about to get bigger tires, I can go back and change the performace curve from that.
    I get better acceleration, but not the slam I was looking for, then I found out I only have 3.42's on truck -- no wonder its got no @ss -- I am going to 4.10's when I get enought jack saved up. That and dual exhaust. But for versatility you can't beat the Hypertech.
