I'd look for a used unlock x2 or x3. I'd pay $150 for x2 and $200 for x3. $100 for unlimited tunes from tuner of your choice and you're set.

I know how that is op. I got ripped off on a trans by a member on this site. Couple weeks later I bought a power side ficm from g2schuck. Dont be discouraged, there are good people on here that are capable of doing good business. Others just arent and i've found out the hard way also to the tune of losing $1k.

If you want to go thru a vendor just pick your tuner of your choice. Wildman, gearhead, php or quick tricks. Cant go wrong and all are gonna be in the same price range.
