    Can you use email and attach/ copy an attachment from an email? If so you should be able to do it. If not do you have any friends or family that is more computer savvy.

    Had I not canceled my scuba diving trip to Milwaukee in a few weeks, we could meet up and I'd install the tune for you. I don't see myself getting up there anytime soon.

    Leave Wed. to dive some shipwrecks with large shark populations, so I might not be installing any more tunes lol.

    Dave,
    I know of more than one person who was likewise hesitant, they called SFT and Jimmy walked them through every step over the phone. You might give GDE a call, I'm sure they too would be very helpful.

    Mine also shipped yesterday. UPS shows it will be delivered tomorrow. Good luck with yours.

    Bring it over to Minneapolis and I'll do it for free. Or just follow the instructions and DIY. If you can sort out adding a photo to a post on a forum I bet you can get the tune installed.

    Just installed the trans tune and drove a few miles. Luckily I was warned about the flashing error messages on the dash while installing. It’s easy and straightforward following the instructions. Immediate impressions as stated by others here, now the factory trans tune feels lazy. The shifts are now sooner and quicker therefore the engine doesn’t rev up as high as before with the similar amount of throttle applied and truck feels a little quicker. There is less gear hunting going up and down hills on the 2 lane roads I drove on. Overall a vast improvement noted for only a few miles driven. I’ve had the hot tune since the 600 mile mark so adding the trans tune makes it feel like a totally different vehicle just as the engine tune did. As a bonus my average mpg on the dash went up by .5mpg while testing it. What’s not to like?
