school me on SCT

i'm new to the world of diesel tuners...

the truck i'm looking at right now has a SCT that goes with it. I don't know what model but the current owner says "I bought the standard sct tuner w/towing tune and a set of gauges"


is this a SCT unit that i can upgrade with custom tunes?


someone please school me on SCT tuners.
