Default selling my old programmer, what to replace with???

ok guys and gals, im selling my superchips cortex because i hear that sct provides alot more hp and torque for the money


just wondering if sct is worth selling my superchips or if the difference is not noticeable

i heard you can take off torque management and that really helps alot


anyway need input asap, got a guy interested in it, but im not going to sell unless i know this is a great idea

if sct is crap what else is better than superchips

SCT is superchips....





The Superchips Cortex comes with all of the same great features that Superchips’ users have come to love, including programming up to three performance tunes to enhance power, economy, and drivability. These features include the ability to save factory settings; program for performance, towing, or economy; tune transmission settings for improved drivability; read and clear diagnostic trouble codes; adjust speed and RPM limiters; and recalibrate speedometer/odometer for tire and gear swaps. There is even a data acquisition software package available via Internet download that allows users to save and log data to better understand their vehicle performance.
All Cortex programmers are fully Internet updateable using a very simple software utility that can be downloaded to your PC via www.superchips.com

Myself I like the Diablo or the SCT xcals

SCT has custom tuning. They are not the same.
