Buying a used Tuner

What questions do I need to ask when buying a used tuner? I've got a stock setup that I want to add a CAI & tuner to for MPG and towing. Pretty simple needs and while the SCT x4 is priced right and does everything I need I just don't like the big bulky box look of it. I'd like something a little sleeker looking dash mounted but buying something like an H&S new just for the aesthetics difference seems pretty stupid. I know they do more but right now and near future I've got no plans for further upgrades.

Thanks,
mk

If you think the X4 is bulky, you should have seen its predecessor, the 3015. You need to be sure the used tuner will support your truck and the tune programmer you decide to go with. DP-Tuner uses a round gauge device called nGauge you might like. Watch this video:

The nGauge will work on any trucks up to 2016. Maybe I am a bit confused at what you are saying here?

If we told you it wouldn't work, it was probably because we were under the impression that you are currently using it on another truck. The nDash supports multiple licenses and trucks at one time, but not the nGauge.

Thanks but I bought a Bully Dog GT and it should be here tomorrow. Next I need to reach out and find out the process for a custom tune.

Jody knows what it is. I'm trying to sell it so I can get an infinity from Jody. Also sell my X4 but not many people answer my questions or anything on this forum
