Buy it from a custom tuner. Or call Patrick at DPP, him and Larry sell livewire with custom tunes. I use Eric at Innovative Diesel and Doug at GoGo diesel. Both are awsome guys that write good tunes and geart customer service. There are other ones that I have heard good things about like Matt at Spartan, (which I think I will try next) Tadd at Elite, and DJ. Just start calling and see who you feel the most comfortable with.
