question about H&S new Street Tuner

Is the hardware different than the off-road tuners?

the reason I ask:

If it is the same hardware, it stands to reason that a 'street tuner' could be firmware updated to a previous set, and older off-road tunes loaded.. Or, a device could be cloned...

is there anyone with any insight on this?

the street tuners have a "newer" firmwear. You can't backdate firmwear.

There are work-arounds that will come to light in coming months, but the Race tuners will always have the leg up for the older trucks

a person could modify script pretty easily to make older firmware appear to be newer... pretty easy, actually. I just wonder if a 'street tuner' would support 'off road' tunes at that point..

I'm not about to try it... but, it may be an option for future use, when certain modifications are no longer supported.. not that somebody won't come up with something easier and better in the meantime, though..

question about H&S new Street Tuner

I'm sure it can be done, it'd be just like jailbreaking an iPhone or iPad. Just need somebody to exploit it

I had a street tuner running on my truck the first day it arrived.

Soon you will see people selling Street tuners with "custom tuning".

I was told to keep quiet about this stuff, so I guess everybody else should too

I'd reckon you are right- it's time I shut up...... I'd also reckon that this puts the burden flatly on the consumer, which some folks are willing to risk such, and some might not be..

I concede- the new 'street tuners' are locked and can never be modified to allow 'off road' type tuning.. cool..

They can't be modified to run H&S "high sulfur" tuning. But other people will be able to do custom tuning on them.

This puts liability on the tune writer and/or end user and not H&S. It also increases H&S per-unit profit considerably. Brilliant move on their part IMO

And no, you can't just order a Street tuner, unbox it, and run emissions delete. There are a few hoops to jump through

I gotcha.. I've no doubt it can be done, and will likely be documented and shared at some point.. I ain't going to touch it, though.. Mr. EPA will never get a bead on me!
