Yes there is and you can get what you want.
I have tunes from Matt at Gearhead and his SRL tune is GREAT.

I have Innovative tunes and gearhead tunes. Both are awesome and very reliable. You'll notice a difference of night & day with custom tunes. If you haven tried any custom tunes here is a link to some free spartan tunes from a while back. You can load them by your specific truck strategy and try the different settings to get an idea of what the tunes will do for your truck. You can't go wrong with Eric or Matt's tunes.

I have heard of people having problems with the Spartan tunes being corrupt.
I also have tunes from Eric but use Matts as my DD. His shift a lot smoother and I get better MPG.

I heard others complain they had corrupt files too. I've only used the ones specific to my trucks strategy VXCF4's. I've tried them all except for racing high horsepower sled tunes. Unfortunately with free stuff you may run into problems from time to time.
