SCT tuner

Why is the SCT tuner so good, I hear people say get it if you want your truck to last and so on. I realize different tuners have different methods for boost and fuel but in the end they all have to increase to gain power.When I was tuning my car some tuners had boost come on slow and build and others had low end boost. Thanks for any helpful information.

SCT is written for your truck, almost all other tuners do nothing for your trans at all. With the SCT the writters can actually change shift points, line pressure and locking your torque convertor when needed. Also doing tow files race files etc. Also they can control the timing and fuel on them as well. Too much timing will cause a start pattern on your piston which leads to major issues. Other tuners can also damage your trans and make you go through them yearly or even monthly. As for boost stock is set at 27 with a tuner it can recieve up to 30 or 35.
