SCT tuner?

I want to buy a tuner/chip and am looking at the SCT Livewire. What is the deal with this tuner. Is it custom because it says it has preloaded tunes but room for 3 custom tunes. How do you put the tunes on there? Does it come with trans tunes too? or should i just get a DP or TW Also if anybody has an SCT do you like it?

from what I understand, you are correct the sct can have custom tunes but still is not as good as a TS style chip. Thats why I went with a TS style, BTW I love the way it tunes the trans!

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...
