Those three seem to be the most popular around here. i have not recieved it yet but how hard is it to install and is there anything else that i need to do to my engine before i use it.No, just plug it into your OBDII port and upload your tunes, when you first receive the SCT, hook it up to the truck and get the 'strategy' number from your vehicle, the person doing your tunes will need that for optimum tuning new 4 inch banks exhaust, new head studs, new turbo. how do i get custom tunes and do these programmers come with tunes in them already.

Like I said above, installing the SCT tunes is very simple and straightforward. Best of luck and welcome to the ORG!

I'm waitin for a Livewire myself, they aren't difficult to install as they just plug right into your OBD2 port. They come with 3 canned tunes from what I've read. Just follow the instructions on installing the tunes and away you go. I've used older handheld units and they are pretty easy so this should be same.
Custom tunes can be gotten from several venders just do a search lots of stuff on here about it.
To read EGTs you will need the probe, I'm tryin to decide if I go with Livewire probe to monitor EGTs or pillar gauges......hmmmmm what to do......
