That SCT sounds pretty legit, but does anyone else have anything? Im interested in the same question as the post.

with any other hand held your limited as to what their presets are. with the SCT you have to option to get custom tunes based on your future upgrades.

An person that deals with SCT will do the tuning, usually based on dyno graphs. But I'm sure someone like Sean has caned tunes for the usual bolt ons.

I just bought the Superchips flashpaq 3865 for $200 off ebay. I have to say that I've never been able to spin my tires until now. I programmed the performance tune and haven't tried any of the other tunes because I can't keep my foot out of the pedal now. Best money for HP gain that I've tried so far. I was scheptical at first but it sure is nice to feel more power and throttle response. TS

I 2nd the vote for SCT. It's the BEST bang for the buck thing you will buy. Even with my custom 94+ octane tune, my Dakota R/T achieved 2mpg better and ran about 0.4 faster. If I put it on the dyno and tweaked it, I'm 100% sure I could get even more. Don't waste your time with anything else. I went from Superchips to Mopar PCM with jet chip to SCT and this is leaps ahead of both of those.

Sct seems to be the best hands down...keep in mind a member of another forum I belong to recently did 6 dyno runs comparing all three octane sct tunes to the stock "deathflash" tune and found the biggest increase was with 93 octane tune and that was only 4hp and 20lbs torque over stock tune with virtually the same power curve...He thought it was a mistake and had Sean tweak it but had practically the same results when retesting it so.... for what its worth..not all trucks get the same results from mods but this one had the usual mods like 52mm throttlebody and true dual exhaust... it was only a 5.2 though...

i never dynod mine but i went from hypertech always on 93 to 87 sct and on 87 blew hypertech 93 away.. was able to roast them on take off. i think it helps are truck best not by adding the most power but by taking are torque management off wich allows us to feel the full power of are rigs and adding some power. also the sct wrks best with supporting mods. on a stock truck u wont see as much as somone with little mods. like my truck has a few goodies.. ill be adding 3.92 gears 2600 stall and m1 intake manfold. already have it all just need to get them all installed

You realize that with your smaller than stock tires you already have a gear final ratio that would be close to stock sized tires and 3.92 gears right? if you plan on going with smaller low profile tires you may want to consider it will lower it even more as your mileage may suffer..
