Yup. No relicensing fee either, just make sure he returns his to stock.

No. It will be fine. The only vehicle you can't change it over right away to is the 6.7 powerstroke. They need an unlock card or something for the tunes. Any other trucks it works on it will switch right over as long as he returned to stock

The h&s doesn't have tunes it has different levels. You tune the truck once and from there you can take it from no power, mild, wild, and hot and you can switch the power level on the fly. But when you get it I would hook it to the computer and update it for a 2008-2010 6.4 powerstroke so it has the latest software and tunes definitely. But you can also get a kem ad card which has custom tunes from kem which will have more power.i will end up purchasing some tunes from kem in the future.

No problem. If you have any more questions feel free to ask, it's no big deal. I was in the same boat a month or so ago asking all the same questions. I bought mine used also.

just make sure you can select 08-10 6.4 in the change vehicles menu. As long as it will switch over to 6.4 mode, you're good to go. If it's VIN locked, it won't let you change vehicles in the menu.
