    I'm on the fence about tuning my 06 Silverado 1500. I already have Edelbrock shorty headers, k&n cai, flowmaster 40 series cat back and I wanna finish my truck off with a tune. I want more power gains and mpg's. I did some research on tunes from Blackbear Performance and I was impressed but still not convinced.

    Could someone please post a list of pros and cons for getting a tune?

    IMO unless you go to a tuner with a dyno and they tune it on the dyno I dont see how they can dial in you tune anymore than a good programmer like a Diablo or SCT, there almost alike. The mods you have done to your truck are not hard to tune for with these two programmers. It just takes time to fine tune your truck. Diablo has a forum where you can learn a wealth of tuning info. Also if you want to make a change you can change the tune yourself. I have a Diablo with there 87 octane tune plus I added timing, adjusted the Long Term Fuel Trims (this really helped the performance) shift points,quickness and firmness, tire size, gear change etc. etc. When you make a adjustment you can go to the live data section and check for spark knock. Every truck is differant so I dont see how you can tune a truck over the phone.
