Normally programmers are VIN specific which means if they are loaded on one vehicle, they can't be loaded on another. So forget about doing your vehicle and a bunch of your friends rigs at the same time.

Given your generation truck and powertrain, I'd talk with B&G Performance.

Any idea how these shops getting away with it? It sounds like what they are doing is building a flash tune and dumping that program into the PCM vs. using a commercially available tuner.

A friend of mine has one, marketed by snap on, and he has to pay a subscription, like satelite tv, I think he said he had thousands tied up in it, and it was just a program on his laptop, with special serial port connections.
