To the first question yes. They will pretty much wake every aspect of these trucks up. Trq management will be deleted... MDS can be turned off, rev limiter raised, speed limiter lifted, also if you have LT headers you can have the O2 sensors removed, and you can be tuned for 89-93 octane. It is all a custom tune so you have hands on work. It is NOT perfectly tuned around every aspect of your mods unless you drive up to B&G asking them to put it on their dyno to get it done, but it is all we have at the moment, and is comparable to any canned tuner out there.
Second question is a fat no. B&G are still the only company able to do this at the moment. Why would they be allowing other companies to feed off of their cornered market
? Simple as that, if they are the only ones able to do it, and the only ones you can go to to get it tuned, and tuned again... they are the only ones making the money.
ALSO! I am pretty sure they are tuning the 2011 PCM's directly now. There is a recent thread on here where a guy is doing a v6 electric fan and getting his PCM tuned. He sent in his 2011 PCM and had it tuned... I do not think they have been able to do it with the 2012s yet, but you can get the 2010 pcms for the 12s and do a complete swap... Still the 2011s are directly tuned now.
