My favorite is HPTuners. It is not a hand held programmer, but is software installed on a laptop. That and a chassis dyno will give you a really custom program that no hand held unit can provide.Bill M. Blown 2003 Tahoe Z71

That does sound like a good set up. but how does the cost match up?

One thing I like about the Diablo's is you can data log with them and them get a custom tune via e-mail from a tuner like DiabLew.com. Yes its a bit pricey at first but you have the best of both worlds, the ability to get a custom tune and a programmer that you can use for diagnostics. The Diablo programmers have the best basic tunes and let you make more adjustments than any other programmer if you don't want a custom tune.:cool:

I don't know how true this is and I haven't been able to confirm it, but I was told that alot of the SCT guys are ex-employees of Diablo. Both companies are in Florida. I've been to Diablo's factory/shop and I was impressed. They make everything in house including there products packages/boxes.

+1 on the Diablo. Just bought mine last week. Put an Airaid modified intake tune, a Throttle Body Spacer, and for now the 87 octane setting on the Diablo. The forums, and the technical support almost have me thinking I almost know what I am doing. Getting it dialed in over the last couple of days put me up to 14.8 mpg, up from 11.2. My 6.0L with 4.10 gears is a gas hog, but I am almost able to live with it now.
