It's not a tuner. They are offering PCM swaps. Been a couple post that were helpful on this if you do the search. You buy a new or used 09-10PCM and send it off to them. They flash to your keys and vin Number and throw in their custom tuning. This WILL void your warranty as switching out PCMS will net an engine hours reset etc. Even if you keep your 2012 PCM and switch it back to go to the stealership they can tell that you have swapped PCMS... Will pretty much read, in lamest terms, you have not started your truck in (Insert amount of time you had the Tuned PCM in your truck) which could be 4 months or a year etc etc, and will have a bunch of codes etc that shoot off to their computer... Not into the tech bit just know THEY CAN TELL... hahaha... Now if you do not mind voiding your warranty, which some don't it is up to you, I have read they are pretty good. They do make a difference and it is a way to get around this horrid lack of tuning. Giving you better power from the bolt-ons you have etc. Again do a search as there is some one who did a write up on this when he did it in his truck about 2-3 months ago.

Might be missing some info or it may be slightly incorrect. I have done a little research but didn't go farther than "It will void your warranty no questions asked" :/

i talked to my tuner vengeance racing in cummings ga and they told me i could buy a 2010 computer and get it programed for my keys (vin) and they could do a dyno tune. so if your serious abt getting it tuned i would call a local tuning shop around you and tlk to em about the swap

Well as a business owner myself I look at it like this. If there was a market where people owning a certain product REALLY wanted another product to aid the first said product in performance and or productivity. And there were no big named companies already in that market due to some difficulty in releasing a product... BUT I FIGURED out a way to get you the end result in a slightly different manor... I WOULD NOT want to allow other people to work off of what I was selling. Better for business (; If you get what I was saying.

Long story short if they are the only ones who can tune it, then they are the only ones getting the money every time you want a new tune or do a new modd you need things tuned around. Simple as that...

thanks to the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act: US Code – Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312, your vehicle’s factory warranty is protected by law when you add aftermarket parts.
