If you know how to tune your own truck or wish to learn that is the package to use. It allows you to change all the stuff the tuners (people writing tunes like Eric or Matt) change. The up side is you can fine tune your truck exactly as you want it. The down side is if you really don't know what you're doing you can also blow it up. For most people it is easier and cheaper in the long run just to get some tunes. But if you really want to get into tuning it yourself this is the way to do it.

That's pretty much what I thought, but thought the SCT software would be more expensive. No doubt there's a strong possibility you can do some motor damage, but the fact you can completely tune your truck yourself is very attractive to me.. It's the learning curve I worry about..

Thanks for the reply..

Yes, this is the software that all the SCT tuners use. Like was mentioned, there is a pretty wicked learning curve.
