It is a custom tuned tuner for your truck. Its better on the transmission and factory heads than other tuners. They run about $449.

I agree with Chuckles.

You could also try the tunes from Cale at BTS(Brian's Truck Shop). Tuner and 3 tunes for 425$ last I checked.

I saw sct X3's for 365 or so somewhere today, but I think that was before tuning, which will be probably another $80 or so depending on who you get to do the tuning...

You can find tuners for cheaper, just make sure they are unlocked(sct charges 150 to unlock) and then tunes are 30 or 35$ a piece from Cale, and i've heard 80$ per from Innovative?

Look around in the performance parts forum on here, the same forum you created this thread in. Lots of good information regarding tunes in there.
