well another member here on the forum is selling their SC 3950 and im interested but i just dont know anything about them. i have a muffler, soon an intake and later i want headers. will this hold up well to them and if so is it worth it? why this over diablo or a custom tune? my future mods maybe a cam and i kno ill need a custom tune. how much is it worth? came off of his 05 hemi

Its better known as the Cortex. Same tuning and advanced transmission options as the 3865. Difference is the cover design, some type of power train warranty and its compatible with other Chrysler models.

Minor comparison vs Diablo really depends on which Diablo model but the main difference is Superchips does not do custom tuning.

most likely but I've never seen any of them go bad...just run the updates every so often.. if it's cheap enough you can always get it for now and do a diablo later when you really need the custom tuning ( I went this route), and you'll be able to recoup some money when you turn around an sell it..

You will love it lol if you want custom tunes though it doesn't have that capability. As a tuner alone though, it's way better than Diablo

You will be impressed with the canned tunes available on the SC Cortex, I'd say go for it. Anything under $300 would be a great deal. Just make sure they unlock their VIN before shipping it.
