SCT is cheaper. I ran a PPE for 10K miles and the only thing that could be improved on it is the shifting. Sometimes my truck would get shift shock but other than that it hardly smoked and had 0 not even one bit of turbo lag. I'm selling my PPE because I'm selling my truck. PM me if your interested.

The only thing a PPE is good for is a Dmax. DO NOT run one on a powerstroke. Your transmission will hate you. Get a custom tuned SCT

I know, what I was sayingg is that I have always heard to not waste your money on PPE on a powerstroke. duramax is different story with PPE

you plug your sct into your port under your dash and get the strategy and email that to who ever is going to write your custom tunes for you. then they'll email your tunes back to you and you upload them from your computer to your sct. its pretty simple!
