That SCT sounds pretty legit, but does anyone else have anything? Im interested in the same question as the post.

with any other hand held your limited as to what their presets are. with the SCT you have to option to get custom tunes based on your future upgrades.

An person that deals with SCT will do the tuning, usually based on dyno graphs. But I'm sure someone like Sean has caned tunes for the usual bolt ons.

I just bought the Superchips flashpaq 3865 for $200 off ebay. I have to say that I've never been able to spin my tires until now. I programmed the performance tune and haven't tried any of the other tunes because I can't keep my foot out of the pedal now. Best money for HP gain that I've tried so far. I was scheptical at first but it sure is nice to feel more power and throttle response. TS
