    That's about the going price. I did some looking for both the Superchips, and the Hypertech programmers for your truck and they are priced the same in that range.

    I agree and it is handy to have it to read and reset codes as well.

    What are you meaning by "custom tune"? I've never heard of anyone getting one. Where would one go for that?

    Think I'm a tad bit over legal max length. LOL. GIT-R-DONE!

    Isn't a custom tune like Wait4Me better than Superchips Flashpaq? You just can't go back to stock?

    If you can find someone who does custom tuning for your truck on the xcal2 you can have the best of both worlds. You can get up to 3 full custom tunes along with the abliity of being able to return to stock. I know that troyerperformance does it for the ford guys but if you shoot him an email he might be able to hook you up. Troyerprerformance.com
