SCT livewire extreme problems

I have nothing but hell with my truck while programed with the SCT programmer it bucks and jerks while towing weather the cruise control is on or off. I've updated the programmer and have been in contact with SCT about the problem but there seems to not be a fix everything they tell me to do doesn't work. I've had the truck at the dealer several times and they do not find anything wrong with the truck. I wondering if anyone else was running an SCT programmer dpf delete and having any of the same issues.. Is it possible my programmer is a piece of junk??

programmer might not be easy on the eyes.. but its great when used with custom tunes from someone like IDP, Gearhead, KEM, etc. you need to get custom tunes from one of these places.. you'll notice a world of difference. the canned tunes from SCT are junk compared to the custom tunes. do some searching on the forum on those tuning companies. Lots of info. I personally Prefer Gearhead Hot street and KEM 345 are my 2 favorite.. and Gearhead Tow Tune when towing.

Honestly I didn't even read your post but I had a SCT junk box and it was a joke!!!!!!! I tried a Kem tune and it was even worst. Horrible costumer service from both company's and the 310 tune fried my tcm and PCM. Resulting in nothing but headaches. Do your truck right with a mini maxx. You'll wonder why you waited so long lol. It's the truth period. Runs cooler to. I had high egt's with kem's tunes. Plus the monitor looks like it could be from the 90's.....

I use sct with kem tune and no complaints and low egt. I tried the canned sct tunes what a complete joke. Get those off your truck ASAP. Kem tunes for the sct are only 75 bucks.
