    A custom tune is always going to be better because it is specific to your truck and mods, hence the term "custom". However, if you are like some of us who don't live anywhere close to a place Black Bear Performance goes; i.e. the closest they've come to me is Pittsburgh, Pa. and I live 4 1/2 hours away, a hand-held tuner is the way to go and the Diablo Sport Predator is the best bang for your buck and you can get it for only $274 on 4wheelonline. com

    Inperson meets and cable tunes are not the only options we offer. We also have traditional mail order tunes, of which, we can usually get them out a day or two after you order them.

    I will note, that we have had many a customer switch from a programmer to one of our tunes, stating a night and day difference. We utilize EFILive and make a tune that is specific to your vehicle rather than a canned tune that gives an average estimate. EFILive also gives us access to many more tables than any of the programmers out there.

    How about for a tuner/scan gauge?

    I'm kinda looking for a little extra power at times and slightly better fuel mileage at other times.. but most of all I want something to display my trans temp.. I saw a few people mention the Diablosport but that doesn't appear to be something like the bullydog (forgot the other one I saw earlier) that has a constant display of certain parameters..

    what would yall recommend for something like that?

    I used an Aeroforce Interceptor to show parameters and clear codes.

    I SOOO can't wait to get one of these installed in my truck! As soon as I'm done with the exhaust (getting it installed tomorrow) and audio system (hopefully this next weekend), my next new toy is going to be the Interceptor!

    Jenna, does how accurate would you say it is as far as measuring horsepower and torque?

    I don't think it is all that accurate, it gives you a good estimate though.
