Best performance programer or chip?

I have a 2010 Jeep jk unlimited Rubicon 4 Dr, 3.8 mini van V6, 4.11 diffs, my question is which programer is going to give me more bang for the buck? I'm sick of xterras and minivans riding my while merging onto the freeway because the PS minivan 3.8 that Jeep has come out with instead of the awesome 4.0! I'm leaning more towards a Super chip!

Superchips in my 08 JK auto made it a whole new jeep in terms of performance and MPG's. I also heard manuals aren't as big on gains

Superchip flashpaq seems to be the only one worth your $.

I've heard others prefer Diablo. I think its preference.

I have the superchips and a manual, I picked up 1.5 mpg on tow tune and there is more jump to it. When you smash the gas there is less delay. My 0-60 time is 9.94s, I am on wide claws which bring the mileage down. The tires are a bit bumpy from their lug pattern and the tires are 10.5" wide on 10" wide rims. Also, with the superchips I can now chirp tires in 2nd gear. 3.73s, 31s, and the 6spd

kswyg - this is the first positive post I've heard with a superchip and a manual. Do you have any specific data to support your claim? I am not questioning your feedback but would like specifics before spending the coins..
Thanks

I posted this a couple days ago. I meant for it to be a positive review for the 6-speed.

Sure thing. Just another note... After driving with the 93 tune for a few days, and burning most of a tank of fuel, I'm even more impressed with it than in my initial review. I wouldn't want to go back to stock now. To me, it's definitely worth the cost of the superchips and the ongoing cost of 93 fuel. It's a noticeable and meaningful improvement in performance. Just marginal, yes. Maybe 5-7%. But it makes a difference and I wouldn't want to be without it again.
