SCT's generic canned tunes will do the job, but its kind of like using an all-in-one shampoo and conditioner. Yes, it is both a shampoo and conditioner, but it doesn't really do either very well.
If you buy a SCT livewire, make sure that you go and buy you some custom tunes for it. Your transmission will thank you for it. Innovative Diesel and River City Diesel make some good stuff for the livewire.
With tuning, you get what you pay for. Once you factor in the cost of good tuning for an SCT, it increases the cost a bit. Probably still not as much as a Spartan system, but more than you spent on the generic SCT, for sure.
In the end, you can spend all the money you want, but you can't buy better tuning than Spartan's.
