"canned" tunes are ones that are not tuned for your specific vehicle, they are "one size fits all". So what they do is they take a say 2010 ram 4.7L and make a tune for it then sell that tune to everyone out there. It's a good tune, but theoretically not as good as putting your specific vehicle on the dyno and tuning it.

For example, they use stock vehicles to make canned tunes. These tunes work great with intakes/exhausts/etc. But if you have aftermarket cam(s), long tube headers, or other radical mods you'd need a custom tune.

I have very few performance mods and the superchips is great. I actually got a custom tune at one point(web order....not dyno tune) and it wasn't any better than the superchips.
