Weird considering Travis can mess with some of his cars settings.

Next step is a tune from Tom obviously.

The free updates for one. You add a performance part and he'll adjust for it. Plus you can datalog and he'll look at it for you if you are having problems. Randy wont do any of that without you paying. I've heard +/- about both but way more good stuff about Toms work and ease of working with him.

I could go deeper but don't want to on the subject. Really it's up to Justin on who he goes with.

It should have came with a very very basic tune by SCT. And you should be able to adjust a couple of things like Rev Limiter, Thermastat control, Spark control, Idle control, RPM adjustmants ... and a few other things.

Last I spoke to FSWerks, it was like 199 to get a custom tune from them and yes 150 from T.Tom.

So, buying a tuner is great and all, you still need a custom tune from a SCT Tuning place to really benefit from the purchase.

Out of curiosity, can you return it Justin? I ask because, if the price is around the same, you could give T.Tom or FSWerks a call and buy tuner from them with updated software and a much better basic tune.

I might be able to return it but would rather not as I am basicly paying it off through work, instead of paying for the whole thing up front they just take a bit out of my check each week.

Works rather well if I do say so my self, and going off your prices it looks to be almost the same if I just got it from Ttom anyway, so I might be hitting him up soon.
