is it unlocked? 3815 or 3865? 3815s you can find for 200 day in day out, if its the 3865 for that price, jump on it!

I agree with 0212353. If it's the 3865, that's a good price.

But I personally would recommend the Predator. Have you compared the two for features and specs?

I have no complaints with my SC. for me it was safe, I could really learn to tune as I go without f'in somthin up. Its better than hypertech and perfect for my use as a daily driver.

I used both on my 08.......and I won't ever own another Diablo product. I had some issues with it bucking (tranny) - and I didn't feel like dropping a tranny on my 4,000 mile truck......so I went back to SC. I ran the Diablo for maybe a month.

unless you really need the custom tuning function (or maybe want it in the future) when you do the advanced mods like cam an heads... sc is a better choice because they have better tranny control then diablo (and i own a diablo)
