Re: best programmer

Nope there's not, why are you against customs tunes? They work way better then the canned tunes

Re: best programmer

You can turn off the engine light with the SCT but it will come back on almost every time you cycle the key. And ditto on the custom tune. Their cheap and well worth the few bucks you'll pay for one.

Re: best programmer

X2.Loading a custom tune is no more difficult than loading a canned tune. Hell you can buy the tuner already loaded with the custom tunes. I would recommend Vivian with Quick Tricks or Eric with Innovative. Those are the two main names you are going to hear in the 6.0 tune world.

I personally run Vivian's custom tunes and she had them emailed to me that afternoon. Great shop and customer service.

Re: best programmer

Yep SCT with custom tune is the way to go, custom tunes aren't just for people who like to go fast. They are WAY better than the canned tunes, totally worth the money. I have one for go and one for tow.
