it will work if he "unlocks" it from his truck
but, by the time you buy custom tunes, you will be paying more than if you bought it new

If you pay more than $150 for a used SCT then it's worth it to buy a new one. And more than likely the tunes will not work on your truck.
-Figure $150 for the tuner then 2 tunes at $80 your at $310.
-$350 for a tuner then 2 tunes at $80 puts you at $510.
-Buy a new one with 3 custom tunes for $430 and maybe upgrade to the Xtreme power for another $80 for a total of $510 and you have a warranty and 3 tunes.
