im not having the low end issue at all. i have the throttle sensitivity bumped up so that may be the difference.. i can tell you mine wont even try to hook up in low gear, it will finally grab when it shifts into second and still manages a 5.64 0-60.. gonna grab some 17s and drag radials for when the track opens back up and see what happens

what are some price ranges for these tuners? i have an 04 5.7 i have k&n cai, and flowmaster exhaust, and am going to do headers soon. will i have to change the specs much more than what the pre sets are? or is there already options for already upgraded trucks?

with an 04 you can probably pick up a used predator for around $200. The canned tunes should be fine on your truck. Consider custom tuning once you do headers and definitely if you do a cam an/or heads setup.
