New Tuner?

I currently have the Bully Dog Power pup. I'm pretty happy with it but no matter how hard I try sometimes the tranny throws me a curve i.e. doesnt shift quite right, slams a little, or a few times when I really get on it, it just doesn't shift. Everyone talks up the SCT. Wondering if anyone has the same tranny issues with SCT? I dont have a ton of cash so if it isnt a huge upgrade I probobly wont do it. Also what dyno #'s are people getting with the SCT and similar mods to mine (tuner, intake, exhaust). I was pretty happy with my dyno #'s 423 h.p. + 800.6 ft lb. Let me know if it's worth the change.

When it comes to tuners and the tranny, there is nothing better than the SCT. You can look at my sig and see my dyno numbers. I was able to put down 444 hp with only a tuner, exhaust and a turbo, and LIFTED HEADS!! Your truck and tranny will thank you for switching to the SCT.

Is it really safer than other tuners, and does it cost more for custom tunes>?

you get 3 tunes with tranny tuning, I got the economy 50hp,agressive tow65hp, and agressive street 120hp, thats included in the price if you want Extreme tuning I believe they are $80 a file

I've been running the 120 since I got it, dont see a need to run anything else, I dont have my gauges yet so I been pretty careful, seems safe to me, I gotta tow a car and tractor Friday so I might try the agressive tow then
