I got the SCT on my truck, i had tunes from Spartan, DJ Diesel (when they were still in business), and Innovative diesel. I tried them all until i found the 1 that shifted like i wanted it to. Currently i am running the Innovative tunes. Before i got my studs installed i would romp on it everywhere but i would also not hold it to the moon. I would never try and top the truck out, egts just get to hot. As far as purchasing the programmer and tunes from a vendor. I mean honestly some people had sales not too long ago on the SCT Xcal3 and were selling them with tunes. You can call innovative or whoever you like and get a quote on it. But like the other guy said...use your head and youll be fine, when i got my studs installed, i did not blow 1 gasket. I know some people running bullydogs and etc that have blown all of the gaskets between the cylinders.
