I can tell you right now those number are not true, at all. No way on stock injectors are you gonna get 215 additional horse. The injectors simply cant flow that much fuel.

If you really want to get the max power out of your truck, skip the generic tunes and get custom tunes.

PPE isn't upgradeable and its not custom tunes for your truck.

SCT is upgradeable, so when you one day decide to get different injectors or a larger turbo, your SCT will still work, where the PPE will be trash. SCT=FTW

ppe rates their hp at the flywheel so its not that outrageous. Sct rates it at the wheels. if you figure a 25% drive line loss you come up with 161hp at the wheels. That doesnt seem impossible
