    Use the search function at the top right of your screen and enter "blackbear".... You'll see lots of related threads appear and you should find what you are looking for. There will probably be a few different answers, so check out a few and find what works best for you.

    Good luck!

The link above will give you a baseline but it should still be helpful to read up on some of the others. In any case, once you receive your custom tune, please provide feedback so that others may benefit from your recent experience. Tuners and custom tunes always draw the interest of many.

    My suggestion is look and find a local tuner that would do a complete dyno tune on your truck. I have always favored finding a local source for what you need. That way, the tune is done on YOUR truck, with your driving habits and south Texas climate. Also, if you happen to not like the tune, it is easier to back for fine tuning if your tuner is local.

    Amen to that. I've been back 3 times to fine-tune my tune. My local shop doesn't even charge for it. At $250 (plus $75 for the original Dyno) it was well worth finding a local tuner.
