Laptop/PC tuner software... True or false

A friend told me that he knew that you can purchase or obtain a tuner program for a windows based PC that will do everything you can do with an H&S or Spartan race tuner. I don't know whether my B.S. detector should go off or if this is plausible. I don't even know how you would search for this on google.

So is it true or just some wild rumor?

Yes you can by software and hardware to do it. But if youve never done it before I dont recommend it without taking classes

It's not only difficult, the software is expensive too. Assuming it's well developed software that's similar to what H&S or we use.

Yeah, the cost of the program will be only sufficient if you know what you are doing and plan on starting a business
