Default Superchips Cortex

I have an 06 with a 4.7L, I was looking on Craigslist for a Superchips and found a Cortex 3950 for $125.00. I checked Superchips website and it seems compatible with the 4.7...I dont know much about chips, so should I have any concerns about going through with buying this? Please help if this is worth it I dont want to miss out on it since it is on Craigslist

Make the seller show you it's not still married to another vehicle's ECU. These tuners are designed to only work with one vehicle at a time. If it's not unlocked, it won't work on your truck. Good luck with the cortex, I hear it's a good unit and that's a helluva good deal on one.

X2, that's a hell of a deal for an unlocked tuner. If you can get proof that it is unlocked and not all FUBAR'd, go for it!
