I would update it before installing. This way you are running the most current tuning.

Yeah. Always update before you tune. Down load the tune. When down loading you will be able to pick which tunes you want, after its done loading the tune. Go to the menu and click update firmware. Screen will reboot and your good to go!

Download the "full" card, it should be about 1 gigabyte.

if you wanna make a claim (in the future) about h and s breaking your truck cuz of their tuner i would update it cuz that would be the first question they ask is what version do you have and you always want the most current.

You won't have to do the full download. Just pick the 6.4 litre. In certain cases the full download worked if the vehicle specific choices weren't completing however I would still just select the 6.4 first and hit update card. I it doesn't complete then do the full sd card download

Exactly, mine didn't work the first time and I had to go back and get the full card, seems like it would save some time to just get it in the first place.
