Custom SCT tuning is the gospel. SCT has a great following with plenty of companies providing excellent custom tunes. This is not to say Banks won't work well, it may not end up working the best.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

You dig.

Re: Tuners: Best bang for your buck?

if your looking of cost and do not really need custom tuning. I would get the edge evolution, use the canned tunes and you have gauges built in. (i'm talking about the evo 2 (around $350), not the cts, etc.)

btw i have an sct aswell as an edge evo. The only reason i have an sct is due to the ability to have a wide range of custom tuning options. I was curious about the sct as people rave about it on here, but in the end i still like my edge and feel it is more convenient. (not comparing tunes (even though i had no problems with the canned tunes and infact the jury is out on the shifting of which is better), just the product. The biggest thing is the conveince to change tunes, you don't have to worry about forgetting to carry your tuner with you)

Now if there was more then one place that could tune an evo, i think it would have a following more then the sct.

Its nice to have tunes in days instead of months.

Re: Tuners: Best bang for your buck?

Both the edge evo and the sct are good choices. Both can be custom tuned. The evo dose not have the support of the sct. My preference is the edge insight and a sct x3. I do not like the sct tunes that have the built in gauges. I have analog gauges and love them but eventually I add a ingsight for monitoring more parameters and the ability to change what I watch from time to time. With analog gauges your set as to what you can watch.

Re: Tuners: Best bang for your buck?

SCT all the way. I am newer to the tuning and I wouldn't have it anyother way. Ya the SCT might cost you a few more bucks than an edge, but you can have the tunes tailored to you truck. Plus the transmission tuning is essential in my opinion. I bought a used SCT from the classifieds and got some tunes for way less than I could get an edge or anything like that.
