So has anyone actually put a tuner on a 2013 4.7L? I can't find one that specifically states it will work for a 2013. Everything I've found, says it will work with up to a 2010 4.7L. I can't imagine the 2013 is so different one of these would not work, but would like a little confirmation before I shell out $400.

Don't spend your money quite yet.
From everything i've researched on tuners a 2010 tuner won't work on your 2013.
There's a bunch of differances apparently
Bully Dog and Superchips both say phone back towards the middle of March,so i'd hang on till at least then.
Diablo says they aren't doing one for the 2013 4.7's,so it looks like either BD or Superchips are our best bets
You could try phoning both outfits,it probably doesn't hurt to have several guys phoning them,it might speed them up somewhat.

If you do find a tuner,make sure you let the rest of us looking for one know too

my 06 4.7 seems to do better with the superchips 87 tune with trans tuning. trans tuning sure helps a lot versus just the canned tune by itself! normally getting around 20mpg is what the truck is saying haven't hand figured it yet

Maybe but Only if you leave the tune installed if you have the truck in a major Warranty issues.

You would just have to uninstall before you take it in
