i would say price,you have to remember there are alot of people out there that do not need or want 200+ HP,but DO want to shut EGR off,DO want to remove the DPF,and save the wear and tear on the engine.,

For just a DPF EGR delete we offer DPF delete kits
The Spartan and the H&S are both great products with large screens with gauges. This tuner with its smaller screen will be a lot simpler as far as reading PIDs. The innovation we are bringing to this product is the ability to create custom tunes for your own truck. While there will be presets, presets do not give a consistent performance from one truck to another owing to the fact that modern diesel trucks are incredibly complex machines and each one is a little different. Presets also cannot match every driver as each driver is unique in his or her driving style. The ability to create custom tunes for your truck and your driving style, we believe, will give this tuner a place in the performance tuner market.

Custom Tuning by the Users EQUALS BIG FAIL. There will be more people on here saying this is fried, that is shot and my tranny is in pieces. Help my truck won't start. It sounds like a bad idea to me, lettting hillbillies, piney's "me" and rednecks program their vehicles. Only time will tell though so I'm intrigued.

The innovative method that will be used to change the tuning will make it very hard to mess up settings on the user end. It will be very user friendly. Most users will know how their own truck drives better than any Technician ever could and thus will be able to make those subtle changes in the tuning needed to maximize it for their driving style and use. We have complex algorithms that deal with the details and have implemented safeties that will ensure that no changes are made that exceed safety limits. We will also be releasing more photos and videos of the new tuner in action very soon!

Sounds Good GearBox. Glad to hear that since some people will just go way to far if no limits and perimeters are established.
